Every year, corrupt organizations cheat the federal government out of billions of taxpayer's dollars this is known as government fraud and like other types of fraud must be stopped. Government fraud costs tax-paying citizens millions of dollars annually in losses and raises prices too.
If you suspect a business or organization is defrauding the government, don’t be afraid to report it. Not only is it is the right thing to do, you may be entitled to a significant reward often totaling millions of dollars (see Financial Rewards). The most common types of fraud include; Medicare and Medicaid Fraud, Pharmaceutical Fraud, Nursing Home Fraud, Defense Contractor Fraud, Contractor Fraud, Fraudulent Loans & Grants and Tax Fraud.
Government Fraud and Whistleblow Represention
Our whistleblower attorneys represent claims on a contingency fee basis, which means the attorney only receives a percentage of what we recover for the client. There are no out of pocket fees, expenses or other costs. If there is no recovery, the client is not responsible for any attorney’s fees or other expenses.
All information will be kept private and confidential and used for the sole purpose of evaluating your case. Furthermore the Whistleblower law provides protection for the individual who reports the fraud (see Your Protection).
Qui Tam / False Claims
The False Claims Act is often referred to as Qui Tam or whistleblower cases. Qui Tam provides a way in which money wrongfully taken or stolen can be recovered by the government. Often companies that commit this fraud are government contractors, pharmaceutical companies, hospitals, defense contractors, or physician groups. When someone reports this type of fraud they are entitled to a portion of the amount recovered which can range from 15-25% of the total. This can be a substantial amount of money and is designed to empower individuals to step forward and do the right thing.
