Exposing Fraud Against the Government
If you have knowledge of an individual or business committing an act of fraud against the state or federal government, you have legal rights and protections if you decide to expose the wrongdoing and take legal action. By filing a special kind of lawsuit, you can expose the illegal or fraudulent acts of the individual, business or government entity in question, protect your own interests and potentially be eligible for monetary compensation.
At The Jaffe Law Firm I represent "relators" (those who expose illegal or fraudulent activities) in qui tam lawsuits. To learn more about your legal options and protections, contact a San Francisco False Claims Act attorney today.
Understanding Your Legal Options
If you know of an individual or business that has committed Medicare fraud, fraud by a government contractor, fraudulent billing or another example of fraud against the government, contact an attorney promptly. These types of cases are highly complex, and it is recommended to work with an attorney who has specific experience handling qui tam/False Claims Act suits.
If your suit is successful, you may receive a monetary reward. The amount of compensation awarded is based on the amount of recovery by the government.
If the alleged fraudulent activity happened at work, the whistleblower is protected from any retaliatory acts by the employer. The False Claims Act provide other protections to whistleblowers. Talk to a lawyer to find out more.
