Jackson Whistleblower Claim Lawyers
Get Paid for Doing the Right Thing
Do you suspect your employer is trying to defraud the government? If so, call the Jackson whistleblower claim attorneys at ‘Maggio | Thompson, LLP immediately. Whistleblower cases, also known as qui tam lawsuits, are a type of legal action in which someone who files a claim under the False Claims Act can be rewarded for helping the government discover and put a halt to fraud. Individuals who file a claim under the False Claims Act on behalf of the United States stand to receive a portion of any recovered damages (usually 15-20%), which can end up being a substantial amount of money.
Qui Tam Lawsuits & the False Claims Act
The False Claims Act, also referred to as the “Lincoln Law,” is a federal law that holds individuals and companies liable for defrauding the government. This is the primary tool used by the U.S. government to combat fraud against government programs and agencies, and its qui tam provision allows non-government persons to file actions on behalf of the government. If such actions are successful, the whistleblower stands to receive a portion of the damages recovered.
False Claims Act cases may involve:
- Healthcare fraud
- Conspiracy to commit fraud
- False or fraudulent claims, records, or statements
- Defense contract fraud
- Trade Agreements Act (TAA) cases
- Financial fraud
- Price manipulation
- Off-label marketing
Most False Claims Act cases are initiated by whistleblowers. According to statistics presented by the U.S. Department of Justice, 86% of the False Claim Act cases filed in 2018 were qui tam actions.
