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.
