I would request a face to face meeting with your lawyer to explain the status of your case and the strange documents that your received. If he or she will not me with you, or if the explanation is not satisfactory, I would consult another attorney about your case. I would not hire any attorney who will not meet with you one on one and explain things so you can understand.
Why in the world would you hire a lawyer you never met?
I'd request a face to face meeting with him as soon as possible for explanation of charges and why your medical expenses need to be financed through a bank.
I would not accept[t speaking to any assistant, only your lawyer.

It is probably time to meet your attorney and if they are unable to instill complete confidence in you, move right to consulting with another attorney experienced in personal injury matters.
I'll take a different approach than others here-talk to a local a local attorney that does PI work. If the accident wasn't your fault, you're entitled to more than the medical bills.
