Paying taxes on settlement ??

What is the name of your state? Louisiana

I recently received a settlement and want to know if it is it required to pay taxes on the awarded amount at the end of the year. It seem I should not since after my decreased settlement value agreed on and attorney fees barely cover the medical expense I need to pay back.

Thanks in advance for your help.
