Workers Compensation Lien Resolution

When a worker is injured on the job, worker compensation is available to them to offset medical costs involved in his or her treatment and recovery. If a third party is at fault in the worker’s injury, a liability claim can be placed against that party. If a settlement is generated from litigation against the third party, the employer has a right to enforce a workers’ compensation lien to recover funds paid to the employee.

If you are an attorney representing a client who’s suffered a workplace injury, your job is not done once a settlement has been reached. An employer’s ability to procure a portion of your client’s settlement will affect their overall satisfaction with the outcome. To provide comprehensive services for your client, a workers compensation lien resolution must be established. Consider passing this part of your effort to the experts at Synergy Settlement Services. We have the experience and resources to achieve positive results for both attorneys and clients.

Workers Compensation Lien Resolution Services

When a lien is enforced to reimburse an employer for a workers compensation payout, the process is rarely a simple one. Synergy negotiates on your client’s behalf to reduce the percentage of the settlement the lien may garner. Oftentimes, the employer will be motivated to take a percentage of the settlement to simply “settle” the matter. If the lien has the potential to garner a significant portion of a settlement, the employee’s counsel will likely be motivated to go through the litigation process to ensure that their client is compensated. As a part of our workers compensation lien resolution services, we will also review each lien for administrative fees. It’s critical to negotiate the removal of those fees.

"We have been using the lien resolution services Synergy offers for over a year, and it has been a load off of our back. As a trial attorney, I need my staff to spend time on litigation, not waste their time on hold with Medicare. The time and effort that we used to spend resolving issues with Medicare is now being used in much more productive ways. I haven’t called Medicare in over a year, and I hope I don’t have to call them again."
