Whistleblower/Relators Recover More than $31 Billion in Fraud Through the U.S. False Claims Act

· False Claims Act,Fraud

Fraudsters have been forced to pay more than $31 billion back to the U.S. Government since President Obama took office eight years ago, the U.S. Justice Department reported. And Cornell Dolan is proud to have been part of that effort.

Since 2008, attorneys at Cornell Dolan, P.C. have helped whistleblowers and led False Claims Act prosecutions against pharmaceutical companies, for-profit education companies, home health nursing agencies, pharmacies, and medical clinics.

The False Claims Act allows a whistleblower, known as a relator, to tip the government off to fraud and false claims. If the government recovers its money, the relator receives a percentage of the proceeds. If the government declines to prosecute the charges, the relator can take the case on and prosecute directly. Cornell Dolan has represented a number of such relators.

"In 2016 alone, the U.S. Government recovered nearly $5 billion under the False Claims Act, according to the Justice Department" said Timothy Cornell, of Cornell Dolan, P.C. "That's the third largest recovery in U.S. history, and it looks like it will only get bigger in years to come."

The False Claims Act rewards relators who are the first to blow the whistle, so filing a complaint early is critical. If you suspect you know of fraud against either the state or federal government, call Cornell Dolan, P.C. today at (617) 535-7763.
