The issue is whether or not you disclosed the asset to the trustee. You should contact both your personal injury attorney and your bankruptcy attorney as soon as possible.

How the Bankruptcy trustee & court will deal with this issue varies widely from district to district. Since you are represented, you should follow the advice of your attorney, who I would hope is familiar with the requirements in your district.

Hope this perspective helps!
