An experienced whistleblower lawyer will be able to advise a whistleblower on the validity of their claim prior to reporting the fraud. Because not all whistleblower cases qualify under the False Claim Act, it is important to consult with an experienced lawyer before making the decision to blow the whistle.
In 2018, the Department of Justice recovered $2.9 billion under the False Claims Act, with $2.5 billion attributed to the healthcare industry. Most of these cases were initiated by whistleblowers, who are entitled to receive up to 25% of any recovery.
