It depends on the terms of the settlement documents. He has an "interest" under Florida law but it is not defined until the divorce.

Whether or not you are separated, a settlement for personal injury is separate property unless the injured spouse donates the settlement by depositing it into the marital joint account or in some other way indicates it is marital. I hope this answers your question.
