That's not money you've earned, but rather it's the calculated cost of damages you've caused to vehicles and city property as well as health costs for injured civilians. You want to keep those numbers as low as possible or else your rating will be negatively affected at the end of the case. As long as you aren't trashing everything in your path you should be fine, and if you get a freak chain of horribleness you can pause, quit, and resume to the last checkpoint rather than restart the entire case.
