Thank you for using JustAnswer.
I'm sorry to hear about your situation. No. A settlement is contractual, so it's waiving their right to sue. But even then, in every state, and in Federal law, settlement negotiations and payments of settlements are not admissions of liability, so any offer or actual payment can't be used to show that you feel that you have liability. Settlements are often done so that you can avoid the expense of court. It's not because you feel that you are "guilty".
