Under New York State law, you need to be able to prove that you have suffered a "serious injury". There are volumes on what that means, but basically, it boils down to death, broken bones, miscarriage, total disability of 90 days or more, or permanent partial disability, all of which must be proven by objective medical findings.

It is difficult to figure out exactly what happened from your question. Assuming you rear ended the car in front of you and you are now claiming damages but not physical damages, but emotional.

You do have a personal injury case for both you and your child. In order to obtain the best possible recovery in your situation, I strongly recommend that you contact an experienced personal injury attorney. Statistics have shown that better settlements are obtained by injury lawyers. I don't think an insurance company will give your panic attacks much weight unless you seek some treatment for them from a licensed health care professional. It is also in your best interest to get some help for this compelling issue.

Generally, you need to prove a permanent physical injury or scarring to recover money from a car accident in Florida. It is probably too early to know exactly what effects the accident will have. You should consult a personal injury attorney who can help you obtain compensation. Most lawyers who handle these cases will do so on a contingency fee basis, meaning you do not pay unless you win.

Yes you may be able to. I would suggest that you ignore the possibility of a suit at this time. You have up to three years to file a suit. See how the emotional problems go. If you get to the point that it is bad enough to seek medical attention, do so. In the end, to recover for emotional distress, you will need a psychiatrist to testify and convince a jury that you have post traumatic stress disorder or other anxiety disorder caused by the accident. These cases are difficult to prove because juries are skeptical of personal injury claims that do not involve broken bones or other tangible injuries that show up on x rays. If the mental injury is real, however, it is worth pursuing.
