Los Angeles Whistleblower Lawyers
Whistleblowers – those who “blow the whistle” on and expose commercial conduct that is dangerous, illegal, or unethical – are critical to protecting consumers, the general public, and the business environment from “bad actors” who seek to cut corners in order to make a profit.
Merely exposing unethical or unsafe conduct is oftentimes not enough, however, to keep businesses from engaging in such behavior: instead, these businesses will only stop when forced to do so through litigation.
State and federal governments lack the resources to hold every business accountable for their choices, so they enlist the help of whistleblowers by encouraging them to file qui tam lawsuits.
Learn how the Workplace Rights Law Group can assist you in filing and prosecuting such a lawsuit.
Defining a Qui Tam Lawsuit
Generally speaking, in a qui tam whistleblower lawsuit a private individual files a lawsuit under the federal False Claims Act or its state-level equivalent on behalf of a state or federal government agency and asserts the claim that the agency would have had against the business.
In other words, the private individual whistleblower stands in the place of the government agency, asserts the claims that the agency could itself assert against the defendant-business, and recover compensation on behalf of the agency. In return for their efforts, a successful qui tam lawsuit will permit the private individual whistleblower to receive a portion of the overall recovery as a reward (this portion increases if the whistleblower successfully prosecutes his or her qui tam case without assistance from the relevant government agency).
Los Angeles Qui Tam Whistleblower Lawsuits Can Be Difficult to Win
The mere fact that a Los Angeles business – perhaps even your employer – committed an unethical or illegal act does not mean the success of your qui tam lawsuit is guaranteed. Businesses routinely employ skilled attorneys and law firms to assist them in defeating whistleblower lawsuits: therefore, retaining an experienced and tenacious law firm of your own to assist you in your qui tam case is essential.
