Have you spoken with your attorney about this?
Thank you. If you signed and settled under duress, you would have a basis to try and motion the court to vacate the settlement and to proceed to trial. If you were represented by legal counsel at the time, you are going to need to show they did not inform you and advise you of this and forced you into settling, instead of acting in your best interest and properly representing you. If that can be shown, you would have a basis to try and vacate this, which could be based upon an ineffective assistance of counsel claim.
