You need to speak with your attorney. He or she knows the fact. I don't. It's that simple. If they want to keep 4 days because you were in jail, and that's the end of it. It may be best to let sleeping dogs lie, but you need to consult with your attorney.

If you give your attorney authority to enter into a settlement arrangement, he or she should be able to settle a case on your behalf. You may be required to sign some documents, but that can be done through the mail.
