Bills can be negotiated down to 5-10 cents on the dollar by a good lawyer. You can switch lawyers at any time by sending a termination letter. You can find a new lawyer by using Avvo's "find a lawyer" tool. The secret to maximizing a settlement is retaining a lawyer with a low contingency fee, less than 30%, with NO costs deducted, so you are left with the lion's share of the settlement, not your lawyer. Good luck.

The facts that you describe does not provide me with a clear picture of what took place. It sounds like you have had an offer for settlement but it is not clear who and how much was offered. I will need to take a look at your file before I can answer your question. If you do not not trust your attorney, you need to see another one immediately.
Medical bills are routinely negotiated down to 50% and much less in some instances. You should ask about these reductions on your bills. It also appears you are not happy with your lawyer. If so you should immediately seek another opinion before its too late.
It sounds like you need to talk with another lawyer about these issues.
