If your insurer paid your limits without obtaining a release, you need to retain a lawyer in the jurisdiction where the "settlement" was made to review whether you should take legal action against your insurer.
My responses to questions on Avvo are never intended as legal advice and must not be relied upon as legal advice. I give legal advice only in the course of an attorney-client relationship. Exchange of information through Avvo's Questions forum does not establish an attorney-client relationship with me. That relationship is established only by individual consultation and execution of a written agreement for legal services.
It is unlikely there is not a release from any further civil liability. Your insurer can not get a release for criminal liability. That is up to the government. You should hire a lawyer.

Regardless of the release, if you get sued, your insurance company must defend you. You stated there was criminal issues involved, where you served with a criminal complaint or information, or were you arrested? If so, you need to defend this case. Review my website to see if it answers any questions you may have.
