Top Rated Whistleblower lawyers at Miller Law Group have experience representing whistleblowers in high stake cases.
Both the federal and the state False Claims Acts were enacted to encourage whistleblowers to report fraud against government programs. The FCAs contain a “qui tam” provision that empowers whistleblowers to file qui tam complaints on behalf of the government. Qui tam lawsuits are filed under seal to allow the government, and/or the North Carolina Attorney General, time to investigate the claims and decide whether to intervene in the case.
If the government intervenes in the case, the whistleblower is entitled to received up to 25 percent of any recovery. Because most fraud goes unreported, allowing whistleblower to participate in the recovery encourages insiders to report the fraud.
Miller Law Group has successfully represented whistleblowers in many cases involving the False Claims Act. To protect your rights, it is important to speak with an experience whistleblower lawyer prior to reporting the fraud.
