Qui Tam

Written by Law Offices Of Gary Green

Qui Tam is an abbreviation for a Latin phrase qui tam pro domino rege quam pro se ipso in hoc parte sequitur meaning who sues on behalf of the king as well as for himself. Qui tam is a writ under the Federal Civil False Claims Act that allows a private citizen with knowledge of past or present fraud committed against the U.S. federal government to sue on its behalf. This provision allows a private person, known as a relator, to file suit in the name of the U.S. Government, charging fraud by government contractors and other entities that receive or use government funds, and share any money recovered. The relator need not have been personally harmed by the defendant’s conduct.

A qui tam relator files a complaint, under seal, in a U.S. District Court that has jurisdiction over the case. Along with the complaint, the relator must also file a written disclosure of substantially all material evidence and information the person possesses. The primary purpose for the written disclosure is to provide the government with enough information to properly investigate the claim to determine if it will join in the lawsuit. Qui tam has been, and continues to be, a very effective and successful tool in combating government procurement and program fraud and recovering revenue lost because of the fraud.

If you believe you have evidence of wrongdoing that falls into one of the categories described in these pages, e-mail us at ggreen@gGreen.com or call us at (501) 224-7400, or toll free at 1-888-442-7947 to learn more about your rights. The consultation is free, and we are paid only if a recovery is obtained.

Toxic Torts

Written by Law Offices Of Gary Green

Toxic tort cases are complex litigation cases that seek recourse for a person injured by hazardous materials and chemicals. In the United States, toxic materials are found in the air, water, food, work place, and even at home. Harmful substances include lead paint, pharmaceutical drugs, toxic mold, pesticides, chemicals and asbestos.

Many people come in contact with toxic materials by occupational exposure or pharmaceutical drugs. Because of the abundance of toxic materials in our country, there is a serious risk of exposure that can lead to  injury, disease, and death. Victims of a personal injury caused by exposure to a toxic substance may seek recourse for serious injuries.

Additionally, these cases often result in a class action law suit, because toxic exposure usually affects more than one person.

If you or a loved one has had an injury or illness due to a toxic substance, we may be able to help. If you have any questions or need additional information, call us toll free and without obligation at 1-888-442-7947 or send us an e-mail at ggreen@gGreen.com.
