Legal Question

Here's is my question. In 2006 my mother signed a settlement agreement for a lump sum because she got injured at Kmart. A the time she received $9,999 check. However, I am looking at her settlement contract and I believe they made a mistake. I will write word for word what it says, at least one of the paragraphs, in this settlement contract ..."WHEREAS, the parties agree that a lump sum of Ninety-nine Thousand Nine Hundard and Ninety-Nine dollars (9,999) is a fair and reasonable settlement". My mom has a mental illness, and obviously she would have never caught this mistake. I, however, just found the contract and noticed that they wrote the words $99,999, but in parenthesis left out the extra 9. And so, when they gave her the settlement money, she only received the (9,999). Doesn't this mean, they still owe her the other $90,000
