Where Does the Other Plaintiff Go?
TrialWorks has a place for everyone. Information relating to your client goes on the Client Tab. Information relating to any named party that isn’t represented by your firm goes to the Other Parties Tab.
But, where does information relating to plaintiff, not your client, go?
Other Parties Tab
The Other Parties Tab is reserved for those individuals or entities related to the case, who are not your client.
For example, your client, Jane, is in a car accident. Her friend, Michelle, is a passenger in Jane’s car and retains Attorney Bill to represent her in the lawsuit. Jane’s information goes on the Client Tab because she is your client. However, Michelle, who is also a plaintiff in the case and who is represented by Attorney Bill, goes on the Other Parties Tab because she is not your client. Michelle is an other party to the claim.
