What is a Qui Tam Award?
Who receives the award in a whistleblower case?
If prosecution of the lawsuit is successful, the government may recover its actual damages, which may be trebled (multiplied by three), plus receive fines assessed for each false claim submitted. The relator, or Whistleblower, may recover up to 30% of this total. According to statistics released by the Department of Justice the average Whistleblower’s award is $1 million dollars.Rosie Alvarado, P.C.
