Usually personal injury cases are not "pro bono," they are on a contingency fee basis, which means the attorney gets paid a percentage of your recovery. You can always fire your attorney and hire another one, but your exiting attorney may place a lien against your recovery/settlement for the value of the work s/he has already done.
There really is not anything you can do to speed it up, assuming that you have provided all records in your possession and made yourself available for any requested independent medical exam or deposition. I realize the paralegal is intercepting your emails to your attorney, but you should probably contact whoever rules your attorney's schedule and request a meeting with your attorney to get an update on your case.
