HOW FALSE CLAIMS LITIGATION WORKS
According to the False Claims Act, 32 U.S.C. § 3729, a company is liable to the government if it knowingly (with actual knowledge, deliberate ignorance of the truth or reckless disregard of the truth) presents a claim for payment or approval to the government. If you believe that the company you work for has been fraudulently billing the government for services rendered or goods provided, contact Harris & Huge, a whistleblower law firm in South Carolina. We will review the documentary and electronic evidence necessary to prove the claim.
Once a complaint has been drafted, it is filed with the appropriate federal court and the U.S. Justice Department is notified of the claim. Thereafter, the federal government has a choice of whether to intervene or allow the suit to continue independently. The litigation process that follows will consist of discovery, depositions, expert witnesses, settlement negotiations and, if necessary, trial. Throughout the litigation, we will explain the process as well as settlement offers and our professional lethal opinion on whether to settle or continue with the litigation. Our Charleston attorneys have extensive experience with qui tam lawsuits and will zealously advocate for our whistleblower clients.
