Is your lawyer charging you hourly? If the fee is contingent, you haven't paid anything yet. At this point, your lawyer cannot recover your deductibles without waiving the rest of the claim. When you have reached your maximum medical improvement, your lawyer will probably move your case towards settlement or trial. Then you should recover your deductibles and something for your injuries.

You seem to be getting off on the wrong foot with your attorney. I suggest you schedule a face-to-face meeting with your attorney to discuss your concerns before they fester further.

I agree with Mr. Lundeen. You need to talk with your current motor vehicle attorney about your expectations, and if he does not meet or exceed your expectations, you have every right to hire a new motorcycle accident attorney. Best of luck in your case.
