Lien Res Success Story – Synergy’s experienced negotiators reduce a self-funded ERISA lien by 96% for a savings of $211,327.07

This case involved a plaintiff was injured when he jumped from a balcony and landed head first on the concrete pavement below.  Due to liability issues plaintiff’s counsel was only able to obtain $75,000 from the property owner’s insurance carrier.  The plaintiff’s medical bills were paid from his employer’s self-funded ERISA plan who asserted a subrogation/reimbursement claim  in the amount of $220,000.  Despite very strong plan language, and reliance on U.S. Airways vs. McCutchen , Synergy’s experienced negotiators were able to reduce the repayment demand to $9,000.00.  This is a reduction of 96% and allowed the severely injured plaintiff to retain the vast majority of his settlement proceeds.

"I have used Synergy to resolve tough Medicare lien and set aside issues. There is no other practice that comes close to the quality of their work. I highly recommend them and they are a must for the substantial, tough cases."

"In my business as a plaintiff’s products liability lawyer, everything begins and ends with our clients. In our firm we never handle a significant case without the assistance of Synergy. Why? Very simple: we trust Synergy with our clients. Yes, Synergy only works with plaintiffs. And yes, they are highly technically proficient and know this business cold. But what makes them different from others is that they listen to our clients, make our clients comfortable with complex issues, and always put the interests of the client first. In my opinion, because of their unique ability to handle people with sincerity and compassion in their time of crisis, they stand head and shoulders above his competition."
