Well this will be a pickle as you will sue lawyer for not paying medicare and then you will get sued for the money that you got in the settlement back that you shouldn't have recieved  - because it should have gone to medicare. You won't likley have a situation where YOU keep the money you shouldn't have recieved and expet the lawyer to pay out of may be robbing peter to pay paul here.
