You should immediately set an appointment for a face to face with your attorney. Only you and your lawyer know all the ins and outs and you make it sound like all medical expenses will be paid plus attorney's fees and you still net $2,200.00. Follow your attorney's advice on whether to settle or take it to trial.
You need to have a meeting with your attorney who can educate you on why the insurance company is taking such an aggressive position on their offer. You can discuss the possibilities of taking the case to trial with your lawyer or see if they are able to get a larger amount to settle the case from the insurance company.
I agree with the others. Talk to your attorney about your concerns, and ensure he is negotiating your medical bills (liens) so that you are receiving maximum.

In no way am I offering you legal advice, and in no way has my comment created an attorney-client relationship. You are not to rely upon my note above in any way, but insted need to sit down with counsel and share all relevant facts before receiving fully-informed legal advice. If you want to be completely sure of your rights, you must sit down with an experienced criminal defense attorney to be fully aware of your rights.
