When you win a settlement for your client, there’s still critical work to be done. There are a number of healthcare entities that can apply liens to your client’s settlements. The process is complex but critical for you and your clients. Attorneys have a responsibility to their clients to notify them of the potential for liens. Failure to do so may lead to liability issues for you and a greater loss of settlement funds for your clients.
A great alternative to handling this detailed process yourself is to work with the experts at Synergy Settlement Services. We provide lien resolution to attorneys for a variety of cases. We meet with your client, we determine which entities can make claims for settlement funds and what percentage of the settlement they may be entitled to. We then devise a negotiation strategy designed to positively resolve the matter. Essentially, our team handles the complicated and labor-intensive matter of lien resolution services so that you can focus on your core work.
A Track Record of Lien Resolution
Synergy has achieved great success working with a variety of lienholders including:
Personal Injury, Medical Malpractice, Motor Vehicle, & Catastrophic Injury
Synergy works diligently to discover and resolve liens involving your client’s medical costs. We have a great deal of experience defining the specific nature of your client’s obligation to a lien holder. At times, charges that are not related to the injury are listed as part of the lien. We will work to have those charges removed.
Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect
Oftentimes, the medical care for victims of nursing home neglect is paid in part by Medicaid or Medicare. For patients, delineations need to be made between standard medical care and care related to the abuse. In this case, our team will negotiate fair recoveries for both your client and the lienholder.
In cases involving hazardous materials, Synergy has a great deal of experience working with clients to make sure any liens are resolved. We work hard to resolve cases involving exposure caused by a third party.
