Plaguing the current events recently are exposés about government conspiracies and other acts which have startled many private citizens. But what if you, as a law-abiding American citizen, have something to expose about wrongdoings against the American government? If you will bring these kinds of matters to the courts and file a lawsuit on behalf of the government, your claim is called a Qui Tam lawsuit and automatically, the lawyer who will represent you is called a Qui Tam lawyer.
But what are the ins and outs of Qui Tam lawsuits? To gain a better understanding, our qui tam lawyers at Oliver Law Office are more than willing to sit down with you, inform and orient you all about the ABCs of Qui Tam law and lawsuits.
Act – the federal law dealing with Qui Tam lawsuits is called the False Claims Act (a.k.a. “Lincoln Law”), which basically gives people, who are not associated with the government, the power to file claims against federal contractors who commit fraud against the government. The Act is a very complex law and there are no other competent lawyers in the Columbus Metro Area better to represent you than our lawyers at Oliver Law Firm.
Benefits – The relators, commonly called a “whistleblower”, can be entitled to a portion of whatever recovered damages. Usually, under the False Claims Act, a relator can be given from fifteen to twenty-five percent of the settlement money. Moreover, the Act also entitles the relator to have their attorney’s fees awarded. Relators not only get to help the government catch fraudulent contractors and therefore safeguard taxpayers’ money, patients, even soldiers, but also protect themselves from retaliation and ensure their continuous job security.
At Oliver Law Firm, we take into account all these circumstances which we know are very important for you, if you find yourself in the position of being a relator. We understand the enormous risks, both personal and professional, which you have taken just to reveal the anomalous dealings being committed against the government.
