Whistleblower And Qui Tam Claims
Qui tam is the legal term for the method in the federal False Claims Act that allows people to come forward with information and assist the government in stopping Medicare fraud, defense contractor fraud and other kinds of fraud against the federal government.
Qui tam provides strong incentives for people to blow the whistle on government fraud and corruption. Under the statute, individuals are awarded a percentage of the money the government recovers as a result of their successful whistleblower lawsuit.
Examples of types of fraud that can be subject to qui tam lawsuits include:
- Student Financial Aid Fraud
- Medicare fraud
- Defense contractor fraud
- Government grant fraud
- Federal crop insurance fraud
- Government construction fraud
The law also dictates that whistleblowers shall be protected from retaliation for coming forward with evidence of fraud. If you have a whistleblower/qui tam case and are seeking legal guidance, our lawyers are here to offer experienced advice and determined advocacy.
