Lien Res Success Story – Synergy reduces Medicare repayment demand by 97% for a savings of $24,676.35 to our Kentucky client

This case involves a Kentucky Medicare beneficiary who was injured as the result of nursing home negligent care.  The Medicare beneficiary was injured as a result of neglect leading to dehydration and malnutrition.  The beneficiary engaged an attorney to litigate the claim and was able to secure a compromised settlement in the amount of $90,000.00.  The attorney incurred approximately $9,000 in litigation costs and charged a 40% fee.  Medicare asserted a repayment demand in the amount of $25,522.64 and refused to acknowledge the inclusion of unrelated care in their demand.  At this point, frustrated by his dealings with Medicare on this matter, the plaintiff’s attorney engaged Synergy Lien Resolution Services.   Synergy employed its proven resolution tactics and was able to reduce Medicare’s demand by 97% for a savings $24,676.35.  The result was a 55% increase in the plaintiff’s net recovery.

"In my twenty-two year career as a trial lawyer I've handled my share of catastrophic cases and structures, but imagine the complexity of an engaged, unwed mother catastrophically injured during delivery, giving birth to a healthy child, but left in a vegetative state? The issues of guardianship and entitlements of the newborn, the rights of the biological father-fiancé, an out-of-state teenage child of the mother, lifetime maintenance of the mother, as well as the rights of family of the mother, who became her primary care-takers? Synergy systematically managed the seven figure tender of one defendant, the establishment of a Qualified Settlement Fund, a Special Needs Trust, and multiple structures, all the while concurrently maintaining the various entitlements to ancillary services, as well as the remaining litigation. Everything was handled professionally, timely and literally without a hitch. Truly an amazing feat."
