Lien Resolution Success Story – Synergy’s aggressive lien resolution tactics result in an Air Ambulance lien waived and self-funded ERISA lien reduced by 86%

This case involved a serious slip and fall accident that happened on a cruise ship while it was at sea. The plaintiff suffered significant injures, incurring medical damages in excess of $540,000. The injured plaintiff engaged a seasoned trial attorney, but due to liability issues the plaintiff only received a fraction of the case value. 

Following that disappointment, the plaintiff was confronted with 2 large subrogation/reimbursement claims, each of which was larger than the total settlement.

When every solution attempted by counsel resulted with the injured plaintiff receiving no portion of the settlement funds, Synergy Lien Resolution Service was engaged. Within a relatively short span the air ambulance service, the largest of the two lienholders which had a claim for over $400,000, agreed to completely waive their claim. The self-funded ERISA plan, being represented by Rawlings & Associates with a claim in excess of $100,000 agreed to reduce their repayment demand by 86%.

"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."
