Summary Of Case Details

Accident Summary:

  • On July 14th, 2023, the plaintiff was sitting in her parked Mazda in front of her home in San Jose, California when a shocking accident occurred. Out of nowhere, an older model 1999 van came barreling down the street, driving erratically. The van violently collided with the plaintiff's stationary vehicle. 
  • As the plaintiff recounted, "I was just sitting in my car and then a van out of nowhere, he was like driving crazy, he just came and just hit me." The force of the impact was so great that the van proceeded to hit another vehicle after striking the plaintiff's car. 

 

Injuries Summary:

  • The collision left the plaintiff with severe injuries to her back and left foot. She described the pain as "severe" and "pounding", particularly in her back. Her left foot sustained concerning damage as well. As the plaintiff explained, "My left foot, it isn't super bad, like I don't know what happened to it. I think I need an MRI or something done to it, I'm not sure." She also mentioned that her left foot would go numb and start shaking involuntarily since the accident.
  • These injuries have caused the plaintiff immense suffering. In her own words, "It's just severe pain, just like horrible pain in my back and my foot as well." The accident has significantly impacted her day-to-day life, as she stated, "I limp a lot now."

Medical Treatment:

  • Approximately two weeks after the accident, the plaintiff sought medical attention for her injuries at a doctor's office on Jackson Avenue. She did not receive emergency treatment at the scene via ambulance.


Further Damages Caused To Plaintiff By Accident:

  • Unable to work: As a result of her injuries, the plaintiff had to take a week off from her job doing DoorDash deliveries. This unexpected loss of income has likely put financial strain on her.


Insurance Details:

  • Plaintiff's Insurance: the plaintiff's auto insurance provider is Allstate. She has a $25,000 uninsured motorist coverage policy that has been verified via 3rd party provider
  • At Fault Person's Insurance: The driver of the van that hit the plaintiff did not have a valid driver's license or auto insurance at the time of the accident. The previous owner of the van had insurance, but the at-fault driver was not listed on that policy.


Other Relevant Details

  • The plaintiff's car, while not totaled, sustained damage that required repairs. Her insurance company, Allstate, has already had the vehicle repaired.
  • A police report of the incident was filed. The police were aware that the van's driver was at fault for causing the accident with the plaintiff's car and the other vehicle. However, they did not take the uninsured driver into custody at that time for unknown reasons.
  • the plaintiff's marital status is separated.

Frequently Asked Question

At a high level, the plaintiff signs a non-binding LOI with us showing their intent to be connected with an attorney for their case, then after you buy the case, we call them back and have them sign your specific retainer agreement.

Here's how the process in a bit more detail:

First, the plaintiff signs a Letter of Intent (LOI) with us, expressing their interest in being connected with an attorney for their case.

We clearly state in the LOI that it's not a binding agreement and that we are not a law firm or providing legal advice. The LOI simply serves as a way for the plaintiff to indicate their desire to be matched with a lawyer.

Once the LOI is signed, we put together a comprehensive package containing all the relevant details of the case, including the transcript, accident information, injuries sustained, insurance details, and more. This package is then made available to attorneys like yourself.

If you find a case that interests you and decide to buy it, we'll have the plaintiff sign your specific retainer agreement. After that, we'll introduce you to the plaintiff, and you can begin working on their case.

In the unlikely event that the plaintiff decides not to move forward with your firm or becomes unresponsive and we're unable to reach them to sign, we'll either provide you with a full refund or find a suitable replacement case (however this is extremely rare).
After you win a case we’ll introduce the plaintiff to you over email and text. We tell all our plaintiffs that their attorney will be reaching out to them within 24-48 business hours

Once we introduce you to the plaintiff, you can follow your normal onboarding process for onboarding a new client for a personal injury case.

After you’ve been introduced, we’ll confirm with the plaintiff that they are happy with you being the attorney to represent them in this case, then you’ll sign the addendum that clarifies you are the firm that will be representing the plaintiff. At that point, the client is fully yours and the handoff is complete.
If in the rare case a plaintiff we introduce to you rejects your firm and does not want you to be their counsel, then we will refund you the full amount and introduce the plaintiff to the 2nd highest bidder.

Otherwise, since you get access to the full case details, call transcript, and signed agreements before bidding, all transactions are final.
We generate some of these cases from strategic partnerships in the industry and some are generated via SEO, ads, etc. by our team of world class advertisers, marketers, and intake agents.

But regardless of where this case comes from, we make sure to be in control and aware of the entire process from optin to signed retainer. This allows us to ensure that this retainer was generated in a fully compliant manner and has the correct expectations set.
