Filing a Whistleblower Claim

Qui Tam Lawsuit Attorney Serving Chicago

What is a Qui Tam lawsuit?

The Latin phrase "Qui tam pro domino rege quam pro se ipso in hac parte sequitur," means "he who brings action in this matter for the king, as well as for himself." Qui tam lawsuits date back several hundred years to the time when the King of England allowed his subjects to file lawsuits asserting fraud against the state on his behalf.

The Federal False Claims Act of 1863 has enabled United States citizens to file whistleblower claims for the government for over 150 years, making it a tradition of civic action.

If you have personal knowledge about your employer's attempts to defraud the Federal Government or the State of Illinois, seek guidance to determine whether your facts are sufficient to support a qui tam lawsuit. If it can be proven that your employer has intentionally defrauded the government through actions such as health care fraud, double billing or over charging, you may receive up to 30% of the amount recovered.
