The answer is going to lie in details you did not provide. For example if you received an insurance check made out to you and a mechanic, and the mechanic signed off on the check without doing the work, you may have a problem. If you received an insurance check made out to you and your lender, and you forged the lenders name and deposited the check, you may have a problem. I am not able tell your fortune without more facts, but you asking this question without details makes me suspect all is not well.
