False Claims Against the Federal Government
Whistleblowers Rewarded for Helping Government Recover Billions
With help from employee or other insider whistleblowers, the government has recovered billions of dollars from companies involved in Medicare and Medicaid fraud, other financial fraud, flawed or unapproved pharmaceutical products, tax fraud, government contract fraud, physician/hospital kickbacks and other misconduct. The federal government rewards whistleblowers who present credible, original information of false claims made to government agencies for payments and reimbursements. More than $1 billion has been paid out in whistleblower rewards.
The California and San Francisco whistleblower attorneys at Evans Law Firm, Inc. represent whistleblowers/relators in False Claims Act cases against healthcare providers, pharmaceutical companies, government contractors, product manufacturers, research institutions, and others who may commit fraud against the government by overcharging, billing for services or equipment that is never provided, paying illegal kickbacks, and/or falsifying data in order to receive government payments or grants. We currently represent whistleblowers in such a case against one of the world’s largest pharmaceutical companies. If you have credible information for a false claims whistleblower case or any other whistleblower case in San Francisco or elsewhere in California, call us today at (415)441-8669 and we can help.
Federal law protects you against retaliation from your employer for blowing the whistle on fraud. If you are fired because you brought any fraud to light, you can fight back. You may be entitled to sue your employer in federal court and seek double back pay (with interest), reinstatement, reasonable attorneys’ fees, and reimbursement for certain costs in connection with the litigation. Our California whistleblower attorneys can represent you in any action for retaliation as well as represent you in your underlying whistleblower application.
Our whistleblower attorneys handle all types of whistleblower cases in addition to false claims cases, including cases for bank fraud under FIRREA/FIAFEA, commodity trading and securities fraud under the Commodities Futures Trading Commission Whistleblower Program and the Securities and Exchange Commission Whistleblower Program, and tax fraud under the Internal Revenue Service Whistleblower Program.
