In order to sue for personal injury you need to show you suffered "serious injury" as that term is defined by the Insurance Law. I suggest you consult a personal injury lawyer ASAP and you need to serve a No-Fault Insurance form on your carrier within 30 days of the accident in order to get your medical bills and lost wages paid.
To soon to say. You need to establish "serious injury" as that term is defined in the Insurance Law in order to recover for pain and suffering. Be sure to submit no-fault insurance claims to the carrier for the car you were in within 30 days to get your lost wages and medical bills paid. Consult a personal injury lawyer.
You don't give enough facts to assess your situation. Spend the money to consult a different lawyer in your area if you want a second opinion as you have a serious decision to make. Trying to do it on-line is a mistake as there is no back and forth conversation and important details will not come out.
