    Generally, the check by insurance company or other party in car accident settlement has both your name and your attorney's name on it. This is done so that you would typically have to endorse the check before the check could be placed for collection for credit in your lawyer's trust account. You can have copies of all the checks written under settlement. Further, if you have instructed your lawyer that check should only be in your name then you can take action against your lawyer.

      Most settlement payments are made that way if a lawyer is involved.
