Houston Whistleblower / Qui Tam Attorney
You Can Trust Fibich, Leebron, Copeland & Briggs
"Qui tam" is an abbreviation for the Latin phrase "qui tam
pro domino rege quam pro sic ipso in hoc parte sequitur." This translates
to mean: "who as well for the king as for himself sues in this matter."
Under the False Claims Act, citizens have the right to bring a lawsuit
against companies committing fraudulent acts against the government. It
also states that so-called "whistleblowers" may be compensated
through the lawsuit if it is successful. If you’re considering a
claim, contact a Houston whistleblower claim lawyer at our firm today.
Types of whistleblower lawsuits may include, but are not limited to:
- Healthcare fraud
- Department of Defense fraud
- Medicare / Medicaid fraud
- Billing fraud
- Tax fraud
- Criminal activity
- Fraudulent pharmaceutical marketing
What Happens After Filing a Whistleblower Case?
After filing a qui tam case, the government has the opportunity to investigate
and to decide whether or not to intervene. If the government becomes involved
in the case, the whistleblower may obtain 15 to 25 percent of the final
recovery - whereas if the government does not become involved he or she
may obtain as much as 30 percent of the resulting award. An individual
filing a lawsuit under the False Claims Act does so not for his or her
own injuries, but on behalf of the United States government.
