Whistleblower Lawsuit Lawyer / False Claims Act

Abraham Lincoln was responsible for creating the False Claims Act in 1863. Also called the Lincoln Act, the False Claims Act is meant to hold companies and individuals liable for fraud committed against the government. As an incentive, those that “blow the whistle” on entities committing fraud against the government can receive an award. Whistleblower lawsuits use witness testimony and inside information to uncover government fraud by contractors and medical facilities.

Qui tam lawsuit is another term for whistleblower lawsuits. This is a Latin term that is from the phrase, “qui tam pro domino rege quam pro se ipso in hac parte sequitur,” generally translated to mean “he who brings an action for the king as well as for himself.” In Qui Tam lawsuits, or whistleblower lawsuits, one person is bringing action to stop fraudulent business practices against the government but may also receive compensation for themselves for their initiative. The government and taxpayers benefit by stopping a misuse of tax dollars, and the whistleblower is compensated for their information.

Qui Tam Lawsuits

Government funds are used for many uses to benefit citizens. Medicare and Medicaid cover millions of citizens in need of medical care, and private contractors are hired for various construction projects that are funded by the government.
