$100,000 Settlement for ERISA / Motor Vehicle Accident

The firm represented a middle age man who sustained significant soft tissue injuries when his car was rear-ended as he pulled into a gas station. Unfortunately, the client maxed out his Personal Injury Protection benefits, and as a result, the client paid for many of his medical bills with private health insurance. Expert review determined that this health insurance plan had a fully enforceable ERISA lien. The firm was successful in not only obtaining the defendants full combined policy limits of $100,000, but he also successfully compromised the large ERISA lien to 10 cents on the dollar netting the client a substantial recovery.
