You need to refer this matter to your insurance company immediately.  Your insurace company has a duty to represent you and pay for the injuries and damages sustained by the person you hit.  I am not sure why you are dealing witht his on your own as opposed to having your insurance company deal with it.  I have never heard of the rule that this insurance company is claiming exists regarding payment within 30 days.... refer the claim to your insurance carrier immediately.
