No. Give you attorney one more chance to provide you with the documents you have requested. If he does not, consult another attorney.

You can retain a new attorney. Make sure the lawyer negotiates your medical bills down to pennies on the dollar before you sign a release, otherwise the lawyer has no incentive to do so after he gets his fee.

You may move on to another attorney. Obtain your file. Have the new attorney provide what you want.

Also, review your insurance policy for PIP coverages.

Then, go after the liable party based on the evidence

I do not want to second guess what any other attorney is doing because often there are facts and circumstances that change the context of an answer.

However, it is relatively simple to obtain a payment log from a client's own insurance company as to PIP medical payments, 'med pay' payments or other amounts paid by the insurance company. Sometimes the insurer will fax/email the payment log the same day, other times they will mail it out fairly promptly.
