I was injured on November 25, 2013 by a driver who ran a red light and struck my drivers side door. I've been out of work since with a shoulder injury and will find out shortly if I will need to under go surgery to resolve the problem. Regardless of surgery, I will not return to work until February 19th (probably another month at least if I do receive surgery). I am 25 and due to the injury I will miss a lot of work, but also I am unable to lift and properly care for my daughter. Also, seeing I am only recieving a portion of my lost wages I am not able to pay for her day care and have been forced to take her out. I know there is a threshold in New York State for pain and suffering claims, so I was looking for legal advice if I should pursue a claim. Thank you for any help or advice.
