How Nolan Auerbach & White Evaluates a Healthcare Fraud Case Under the False Claims Act
In order for our firm to become involved in a case and file it under seal, it is important that our client provides evidence to support the allegations of fraud. We are particularly interested in cases involving patient harm or lack of efficacy and be of the magnitude that it is appealing to the Government to pursue.
Further, a defendant in a False Claims Act must have relatively deep pockets. Unfortunately, some of the smaller companies that may be defrauding the government are liable to declare bankruptcy if faced with the triple damages that may be levied under the False Claims Act.
These are just some considerations our law firm takes when deciding to represent a healthcare whistleblower.
