This case involved a serious slip and fall accident that happened on a cruise ship while it was at sea. The plaintiff suffered significant injures, incurring medical damages in excess of $540,000. The injured plaintiff engaged a seasoned trial attorney, but due to liability issues the plaintiff only received a fraction of the case value.
Following that disappointment, the plaintiff was confronted with 2 large subrogation/reimbursement claims, each of which was larger than the total settlement.
When every solution attempted by counsel resulted with the injured plaintiff receiving no portion of the settlement funds, Synergy Lien Resolution Service was engaged. Within a relatively short span the air ambulance service, the largest of the two lienholders which had a claim for over $400,000, agreed to completely waive their claim. The self-funded ERISA plan, being represented by Rawlings & Associates with a claim in excess of $100,000 agreed to reduce their repayment demand by 86%.
