Cases with liens we handle
Personal Injury, Medical Malpractice, Motor Vehicle, & Catastrophic Injury – When litigating a personal injury case it is imperative that the discovery and resolution of any liens related to cost of care are handled as efficiently and effectively as possible. In most personal injury cases where the insurer is pushing to settle, Synergy is able to define an obligation where the defendant may be responsible for reimbursing a lien holder.
Nursing Home Abuse & Neglect – Due to their age, most victims of nursing home abuse and neglect have Medicare benefits paying for a portion of their care. Many nursing home residents also have Medicaid coverage. In cases like these, we are able to delineate between abuse related and standard care, and negotiate a recovery amount that is fair for both the claimant and their lien holder.
Environmental/Chemical Exposure – Asbestos, Benzene, and Mercury are types of elements, gases, and materials that have been recognized as harmful carcinogens. With a proven track record in the project management of environmental exposure cases, Synergy is able to report, negotiate, and close cases involved in single incident or class action settlements where there is exposure due to a third party.
Pharmaceutical Product Liability – Despite approval from the FDA or over the counter status, every year there is a revelation of a drug or supplement whose benefits are outweighed by the overwhelming side effects and damage to the body. Diet drugs, cholesterol medications, anti-anxiety prescriptions and many more have pending litigation and liens that need to be resolved. Synergy is able to manage the resolution of these liens and ensure compliance for these complicated settlements where plaintiffs often number into the thousands.
Products Liability – Faulty products resulting in recalls and class action lawsuits will typically involve a third party obligation that needs to be identified, established and resolved. From poisonous drywall to defective child safety seats, Synergy is equipped to be your partner in the process of providing a positive outcome of outstanding liens.
