Do I Have to split my daughter's insurance settlement with her father?

Question Details: I have 50/50 custody of my daughter and with father. She was with me in a car accident and I am the only one who brought her to the emergency room afterwards, one time. The insurance company is saying since it is joint custody that I have to split my daughter's settlement with her father even though this incident had nothing to do with him. Is there a way around this?
