What bothers me is the medpay. He should not take a fee on the medpay. These are benefits you can receive regardless of fault.
Was this an auto accident?
Is the medpay being used for med bills?
Did your attorney have to go above and beyond to secure those benefits?
Attorney fees are negotiable. You can refuse to sign the release if attorney trying to charge you more. Our office only deducts a 29% contingency fee, and none of our clients would sign the release if it were more than that. You hold the cards.

Please ask for a copy of your attorney fee agreement if you did not retain a copy of such. The attorney fee agreement/contract controls. Please set a meeting with your attorney to review said agreement. In Florida, we (as attorneys) cannot disburse funds until our client executes a settlement statement. If you are not on board with the amounts, make sure to wait until you review the agreement with your attorney before executing the settlement agreement.
Good luck... Please do not construe the above as legal advice. I am not licensed in your jurisdiction and you are presently represented by counsel....
