No one can tell you, based on the teeny amount of information you have here, what you could win.
That's what lawyers are for, and why they make the big bucks. They will be able to assess your case, have medical professionals review your records, (pay for) and have your records copied and delivered to the proper people, research who you will be suing and how much you would sue each party for, etc., etc.
It is absolutely a better idea to get a lawyer to do it for you, mostly because injury cases take a lot of manpower, hours, records, and very detailed reports, and it's difficult to coordinate if you don't know what you're doing. Most injury attorneys will also take the case on contingency, and if you don't get paid, they don't either.

You bring your complaint to the law society, the local outfit that represents the public interest in a dispute with an atty. Each state has one. Some refer to it as a bar association, others the law society. Usually there is a link for 'Public' and/or 'Complaints Against Attorney.' Keep it much shorter than you have here - something like:
I'm confused by the conduct of my atty (name/contact info) with whom I signed a retainer agmt sealed with a payment of $xxx.00 as consideration to represent me in a criminal matter. Frankly, he seems unfamiliar with court procedures - paperwork at court is often incomplete - and, perhaps more disturbing, he is unwilling to meet with me to discuss my case despite repeated efforts on my part both by phone and in person. On several occasions, police have arrived at my home with warrants over what they claim to be missed court dates but the dates were never even entered on the court calendar. On one occasion, atty even failed to appear in court on my behalf. I'm now concerned that I may face a stiffer penalty over atty's inattention, and I no longer have the funds available to find alternate counsel. My next court date is (date) ... I think.
Thank you for your kind and prompt attention to this matter.
E-mail it ASAP and be prepared to support your claims with any documentation you have, i.e. retainer agmt, anything cops left, etc.
Need Help To Find A Free Criminal Probono Lawyer In Cali?
I Need To Find A Criminal Probono Lawyer And Fast I Dont Have Mney To Pay For One But If Everthing Goes Good I Will So Does Any One Knows A Free Lawyer
First, pro bono lawyers are free. asking for a "free pro bono" lawyer is like saying "ATM machine" or "PIN number". It's redundant ("ATM" already has "Machine" in it and "PIN" already has "Number" in it, so it doesn't make sense to say these words again).
And if you can't afford a lawyer, a public defender will be appointed to you by the courts. It will not cost you anything. They are not pro bono, but they are free.
