Lien Res Success Story – Synergy reduces ERISA lien by 66% and obtains full waiver of Tricare lien

This is a case wherein the plaintiff was injured in a motor vehicle accident.  The plaintiff was completely stopped at a traffic light when she was struck from behind by the tortfeasor.  The plaintiff suffered injuries to her back, neck and leg incurring medical damages in excess of $25,000.00.  The plaintiff retained counsel who was able to obtain a policy limits settlement in the amount of $30,000.00.  A self-funded ERISA plan and Tricare asserted subrogation/reimbursement claims against the settlement proceeds.  The plaintiff’s attorney engaged Synergy Lien Resolution Service to assist in resolving these liens.   Synergy was able to utilize its experience, expertise and existing relationships with both the ERISA plan’s recovery vendor and the Judge Advocate Generals’ office to quickly resolve these matters.  The result of Synergy’s assistnace was to reduce the ERISA plan’s repayment demand by 66% and to obtain a full waiver of Tricare’s reimbursement claim.

"I don't think I've directly said "thank you" for helping us with Bridgett’s case. We sent the reduced payment to Medicaid and called Bridgett's mom to tell her approximately how much money was going to be left for Bridgett and she broke down over the telephone. Given only $25k of insurance and a $850k medical bill from the hospital she didn't think Bridgett would ever see a penny."
