Qui Tam Litigation Attorney in Houston
Blowing the Whistle on Fraud Against the Government
If your company, employer, or corporation committed fraud against the United States government, you can file a "qui tam" action. Qui tam lawsuits recover money for the government, and the individual who brings the action (the whistleblower) is entitled to a percentage of the recovery. This percentage is usually between 15 percent and 30 percent of the total damages, coupled with attorney fees and legal expenses.
Understanding Your Role as a Whistleblower
As a whistleblower, you must have objective and subjective evidence that a company, corporation, health care provider, individual, or other entity committed fraud against the government. This information is critical to your qui tam lawsuit. If you feel nervous or unsure about bringing this information to the attention of the government, you don't have to worry about mistreatment from your employer. You are protected from harassment and discrimination under federal and state laws. Additionally, you may choose to protect your confidentiality during the litigation process.
