Hello and welcome to JustAnswer. Please note:This is general information and is not legal advice.

I am sorry to hear about this situation. Can you please tell me if the attorney has signed any settlement agreement on your behalf, or you have? Or no - no settlement agreement has been signed? Likewise, has any settlement been confirmed in "open court" between the parties?
This is not an answer, but an information request. I need this information to answer your question. Please reply, so I can answer your question. Thank you in advance.
I am sorry to hear again about the situation. One last question please - what do you mean by "the settlement has been made?" As in, the other side's attorney or your attorney has drafted it for you to sign based on what your attorney has agreed for you?
I am offline for a while, so as not to make you wait for an answer, I am going to opt out of your question and open this up for other experts.
Your JustAnswer Account has not been charged for this conversation and your question is back in the queue. You do not have to stay online for the question to be active. Should an expert pick it up, you should be alerted via email and/or SMS (text message) unless you actively disable these features.
There is no need for you to reply at this time as this will "lock" your question back to me, thus inadvertently delaying other experts' access to it.
My apologies for any inconvenience and good luck...
