Rear End Auto Accident

On my way to court this morning in Nassau County, I passed a nasty rear-end car accident on the Long Island Expressway.  

It was an obvious rear-end collision, where the rear driver was 100% at fault.  I have a trial coming up soon in a similar scenario, and as far as motor vehicle cases go that is about the best you can get on liability.  

I did not, however, leave a card.  Not only would it be obnoxious, it's unethical.  Generally, in New York, there is a 30-day waiting period before attorneys can contact personal injury victims directly, and even afterwards there are limits on direct solicitation.

The driver/passengers will likely want a PI attorney, and I'm a damn good one, but they'll have to come to me.
