About Qui Tam Lawsuits
Individuals who uncover illegal activities and choose to expose those violations are commonly referred to as whistleblowers. A civil lawsuit brought against the company or individual who was in violation of the law is regarded as a qui tam lawsuit. Filing a successful qui tam lawsuit can earn the whistleblower the right to share in a percentage of the total funds recovered by the government.
Qui tam whistleblower cases can vary and may include various types of fraud. Common whistleblower cases include “best price” cases, contractual violations against government contractors, fraudulent billing practices against medical providers, and kickbacks paid to induce Government business. Recently, there has been an increase in known fraud following COVID-19 relief programs instituted by the Federal Government. The United States Government Accountability Office has estimated potentially fraudulent business loans and unemployment insurance allocated out of these programs exceeds $96 billion. Therefore, we expect the number of qui tam lawsuits to increase related to these fraudulent loans and insurance protection.
Qui tam lawsuits are only initiated when a whistleblower comes forward. There are certain protections afforded to that person and it is important to have a knowledgeable, passionate team on your side. The qui tam attorneys at The Simon Law Firm, P.C. assist whistleblowers in holding accountable companies and individuals who deceive entities for money.
