Don’t let a Workers’ Compensation Carrier Control the Settlement Process

Carriers often try to place the annuity with their own life company or offer companies that are only on their approved lists, which may eliminate superior options. We deliver the best numbers using the most competitive life companies with the highest rates of return. Frequently the carrier will say you have to use their structure consultant which simply isn’t true. You have the right to use Synergy’s services. Most workers’ compensation settlements involving structures are “co-brokered” with consultants representing both parties. There is never any charge to get us involved with the claimant’s settlement planning needs, whether it is attending the mediation, meeting with the claimant, or simply providing MSA funding options. It is imperative to have an advocate on your side that is looking out for your client’s best interests and can protect your firm from any legal malpractice traps involving structured settlements or Medicare set asides. We can provide suggested language to put into your demand package, as well as the mediation agreement to insure your client is protected by our involvement.

TESTIMONIALS

"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."

"I just wanted to say thanks to you and the entire Synergy Settlement Services team for helping us put together a series of structured settlements and special needs trusts in two complex cases involving significant recoveries. As always, your accessibility, guidance and expertise on a whole host of post-settlement issues is very much appreciated and valued, particularly with respect to the often confusing topic of Medicare set asides. I look forward to our continued collaboration on cases in the future and am very appreciate of the first rate service your company continues to provide to our clients."
