Apparently the lady at the desk made a mistake and didn’t charge me the full amount. Now it is a year later and they are calling me tryIng to claim that money.

A: It's impossible to answer this question without reviewing all of the paperwork you signed - repair estimates, invoices, etcetera. Many times with insurance claims, the repair shop includes in the paperwork that you are responsible for anything insurance will not pay for. More facts are needed as well regarding why there were two claims.
