Rear ended in december 2014 I was not at fault. Lawyer says he still waiting on medical bills
You are still within the statute of limitations and it takes time for medical providers to respond to requests. It can be frustrating but you are probably just fine.

Are you still undergoing treatment? What are you worried about?
Why is your attorney waiting on medical bills? What are you asking exactly?
If you are still undergoing treatment, your lawyer will probably not see the final bills until you are done. If you have completed treatment already, it still takes time for medical care providers to forward final reports and billing. You should keep following up with your attorney, but sounds like you have nothing to worry about.

Medical billing facilities can be very difficult to work with and are often separate from the doctor's office itself. Your lawyer should not proceed to settlement talks with the insurer without a complete file. Hang in there

You can certainly call your lawyer periodically for a status update.
Call your lawyer and ask what is going on. These things do take time but getting records once treatment has been completed and getting those to the insurance company is often the easy part. Waiting on insurance carriers is the frustrating part.
I am board certified in civil trial law- it means the Florida Bar allows me to be called an expert and I have tried a substantial number of cases and undergone further training and peer review, as well as passed an additional all day exam.
