Synergy reduces Veteran Affairs lien against mass tort plaintiff by 75% for a savings of $71,947.57

This case involved a veteran who was a plaintiff in the Avandia class action.  The mass tort litigation involved cardiac events caused by the use of Avandia.  This plaintiff was undergoing treatment for renal issues and was taking a prescription for Avandia.   The complex nature of the mass tort litigation resulted in a point system being developed by which the plaintiffs calculated their share of the global settlement.  The massive amount of billing, the various treatment dates, the severity of this plaintiff’s non-Avandia related care and the fact the a large amount of unrelated care was provided on the same dates of loss as the Avandia related care resulted in an intricate problem with the lien being asserted by the Department of Veterans Affairs.    Counsel for the veteran plaintiff engaged Synergy Lien Resolution Service to deal with the VA. Synergy dealt with the intricacies quickly and with a fantastic result.  Synergy was able to bypass normal VA protocols and achieve a 75% reduction in a relatively short span of time. The result was a savings of $71,947.57 and a net increase of 97% to the veteran plaintiff’s take home.
