    You do need to consult with a personal injury attorney who understands New York's no-fault and negligence laws. No-fault will cover not only your medical expenses relating to the car accident, but your lost wages too, up to a certain amount (usually $2000 but it could be $4000 depending on your policy). But there are offsets on the lost wages for disability payments you may be entitled to. There is also going to be an issue of no fault coverage if you need surgery several months down the line....

    I agree that you need to consult with an attorney right away because of the time limitations involved in any possible claim against the City of New York. I would add to the comment that you need to have photographs of the pothole taken to include photographs of the barrier as well as the larger construction site. Take photos of the signs on the construction site (usually on the fencing surrounding the site or on a scaffolding) that show who the entities controlling the site are.

    In addition to the excellent comments above, you are able to seek treatment from a psychologist using the no-fault insurance benefits that are available through your car insurance. Finding a psychologist who will accept no-fault insurance as payment may be difficult, but they are out there. A personal injury attorney usually has the ability to make a recommendation.

    I agree with the above comments about retaining another attorney immediately. However, make sure that you are the legal representative of the estate.
