Lien Res Success Story – Synergy reduces self-funded ERISA claim by over 30%

This case involved a plaintiff who was injured in a motor vehicle accident wherein the tortfeasor unexpectedly turned left in front of him. The plaintiff suffered major injuries and incurred past medical damages of approximately $49,000.00.  Included in this was treatment for a knee that had a pre-existing injury.  The plaintiff’s attorney was able to obtain a settlement in the amount of $315,000.00.  After settlement the plaintiff’s attorney requested CIGNA remove the treatment for the knee that was the result of a pre-existing injury, CIGNA refused and referred the matter to outside counsel. After over a year of attempting to resolve this matter, the plaintiff’s attorney engaged Synergy Lien Resolution Services.  Through the application of statutory obligations, insider knowledge and aggressive negotiation tactics, Synergy was able to force CIGNA’s outside counsel to recommend a reduction of over 30%. The result was a savings of $14,665.28, a satisfied client and a relieved plaintiff’s attorney.


"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."

“Synergy Lien Resolution Services just finished getting an ERISA lien dramatically reduced for me. I tried for months, asked for the plan etc., tried to understand it, to little avail. Synergy got it slashed way beyond what the carrier told me that they would ever agree to. It cost my client peanuts, benefited her huge. I won’t ever screw around with trying to get those reduced; from now on they all go to Synergy.”
