Serving San Francisco and All of the Bay Area

Have you discovered that your employer or some other entity is avoiding payments or receiving improper payments from the government? They could be violating the False Claims Act.

 

You may have personal knowledge of conduct that constitutes a violation of the False Claims Act.  The Khadder Law Firm can help you navigate the complex and murky waters of the False Claims Act.  Contact us today, and help prevent fraud on American taxpayers.

 

The False Claims Act

The False Claims Act, sometimes referred to as a qui tam law, makes an entity liable for penalties and damages for improperly receiving payment or avoiding payment to the government.  This usually occurs when an entity knowingly submits or causes to be submitted a false or fraudulent claim for payment.  For instance, a company may knowingly overcharge the government for goods or services, falsely claim work performed, violate a requirement to receive payment from a government program such as Medicare or Medicaid, or provide “worthless” services or goods to the government.

 

People who bring False Claims Act claims are referred to as relators.  A complaint for a violation of the False Claims Act is initially filed under seal. This allows the government to investigate the allegations in secret.  If the government decides to pursue an action against the entity complained of, it will “intervene”.  The government will then take over the case, and the relator will be entitled to some percentage of any recovery that the government collects.  Because of limited government resources, the government does not intervene in every False Claims Act case that has merit.  The relator is still permitted to pursue his or her action, and can receive a percentage of any recovery against the violating entity.

 

In 2013 alone, the U.S. government recovered nearly $4 billion from entities violating the False Claims Act.  Help the government recover even more from those who commit fraud against the American taxpayers by contacting the Khadder Law Firm today for a free consultation.

 

Where False Claims Act violations occur

False Claims Act cases arise in all types of industries, but some are more common than others, including the medical, pharmaceutical or medical device industry where the entity receives payments from Medicare or Medicaid, and government and military contractors.
