Let’s Talk Law – The Federal False Claims Act

Let's Talk Law

This Let’s Talk Law Segment is sponsored by Serious Injury Law Group.

The Federal False Claims act, also known as the FCA, is the government’s biggest weapon in the war against fraud. This act recovered over three billion dollars in 2019 alone. The “qui tam” provision provides an avenue for ordinary citizens to step up by blowing the whistle on fraud when they’re aware of an entity defrauding the government. Additionally, the FCA provides incentives including protection against retaliation and anywhere from 15%-30% of the funds recovered.

If you’re aware of someone defrauding the government, contact the Serious Injury Law group. For a free case evaluation, visit seriouslawyers.com.
