Lien Res Success Story – Synergy reduces VA subrogation demand by 50% saving the injured veteran $24,414.09

This case involves a veteran who was injured in a parking lot when his immobile car was struck by the tortfeasor’s vehicle. The veteran suffered major injuries to his neck and back.  The plaintiff retained counsel and filed a claim against the tortfeasor which eventually settled for $80,000.00.  The Department of Veteran’s Affairs asserted a subrogation/reimbursement claim in the amount of $48,828.19.  Plaintiff’s counsel retained Synergy Lien Resolution Services to assist with the resolution of the VA’s claim.  Synergy employed its proven tactics for addressing military liens and quickly navigated the confusing channels of Judge Advocate Generals’ offices.  In less than sixty (60) days Synergy was able to persuade the government to reduce its repayment demand by 50% for a savings of $24,414.09.  Synergy’s efforts increased the injured veteran’s net recovery by 46%.

TESTIMONIALS

"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."

Synergy’s team makes it easy to deal with all of the issues we hate at the end of the case. Dealing with Medicare, ERISA liens, keeping eligibility intact for Medicaid and complicated planning for the client’s recovery. The experts we work with regularly at Synergy do a great job of making sure I am protected as are my clients.
