The injured party, Fred Martinez, entered into a “Lien and Security Agreement” providing that Martinez granted MLM a lien on any and all proceeds derived from his personal injury claim in an amount equal to the fees and costs of medical care for his injuries related to the subject accident. Martinez settled his tort claim against Allstate’s insured, and Allstate issued payment on behalf of its insured directly to Martinez rather than MLM. Allstate petitioned for review of the Court of Appeals’ judgment reversing the dismissal of a breach of assignment claim brought by Medical Lien Management (“MLM”). Notwithstanding allegations of the Complaint to the contrary, the district court effectively construed MLM’s Lien and Security Agreement with a motor vehicle accident victim, upon which the Complaint was premised, as failing to assign the victim’s right to the proceeds of his personal injury lawsuit against Allstate’s insured. By contrast, the Court of Appeals found a valid assignment to MLM that all rights to the future proceeds from the victim’s personal injury claim in an amount equal to the cost of medical services paid for by MLM, as well as a sufficient allegation in the Complaint of an enforceable obligation by Allstate to pay the assigned sums to MLM. The Supreme Court overturned the Court of Appeals’ decision and, in doing so, affirmed the trial court’s decision, finding that the purported assignment in this case, as-yet indeterminable portions of the proceeds of an unresolved personal injury claim, to be ineffective against Allstate. The Supreme Court held that the assignment failed to assign Martinez’s right to proceeds and merely authorized Allstate to pay MLM directly.
