Your First Steps for Pursuing a Potential Qui Tam Case

If you recently became aware of information that suggests that someone you know privately or at your workplace—whether it’s a superior, a peer, or a subordinate—is engaging in fraudulent activity, you can file a qui tam lawsuit to stop the activity and receive a portion of the money that the government recovers.

But because most people are unfamiliar with qui tam lawsuits, you may be unsure of how to begin this process without jeopardizing the case.

At Matt Hardin Law, our Nashville qui tam attorneys know that many people with potential qui tam cases are reluctant to bring the information to light due to a lack of familiarity with the process, but it’s important to expose and stop fraudulent activity as quickly as possible.

Three Important Steps for All Qui Tam Cases

Qui tam cases are sensitive both in terms of time and confidentiality. To ensure your best chances of filing a successful claim, it’s important that you follow these three steps:

  • Contact an experienced qui tam lawyer.

    Getting in touch with an attorney or law firm that has experience handling these types of cases is essential. Because of the sensitive nature of qui tam cases, the sooner you involve an attorney in the proceedings, the better your overall chances of success will be. Qui tam cases are complex and require extensive knowledge of the law and a cautious approach that only qualified legal teams can provide.

  • Avoid discussing the case with anyone other than your attorney.

    Qui tam cases are only valid if they’re previously unknown by the public before the case is filed. By talking about your case, you may inadvertently tip off both your employer and colleagues or cause someone to file a claim before, which would cause your case to be dismissed.

  • Act quickly to avoid missing deadlines and statutes of limitations.

    In addition to there being actual time limits for filing claims related to fraud both within the United States and the state of Tennessee, waiting too long to file a claim can also mean the loss of evidence and a higher likelihood that the fraud will be hidden or more difficult to prove. The sooner you act, the more evidence your attorney may be able to collect and analyze when building the case.
