In December of 2012 I was in a car accident. We reached a settlement and I signed the release 3 weeks ago. My lawyer has already received the settlement check from the insurance company. I was told Wednesday that my lawyer is still needing to negotiate my medical bills. How long should this process take? I understand that he is a busy man with other clients, but I last sought treatment at the end of April. So my bills have not changed and he has the records of which entities I owe money. I was told that it "hopefully will be finished by Friday"? At what point has my lawyer had enough time and is there anything I can do to speed this up? I need to move on with my life as does my family.
