This is assuming you have already filed for bankruptcy…
It literally depdns on the way the Settlement or Award is worded. Any money related to lost wages or economic loss will likley be seized. Money for api and suffering or to compensate for loss of physical ability probably is not.
Take a copy of your Award or Settlement ot your trustee – they should be able to tell you how much you can keep. If you disagree you may request a hearing and the Cort will decide what is “fair”…
