Legal Question in Federal Tort Claims in Virginia

Personal injury/Federal Tort Claims

An attorney in Virginia settled with the defendant (Amtrak) w/o my consent or knowledge. He's in jail now (awaiting trial) for embezzlement/forgery and uttering. Can I reopen the case since I didn't agree to the settlement?
