Supporting Qui Tam Plaintiffs Who Blow the Whistle on FraudJanuary 22, 2015
“Whistleblower.” It’s an innocuous sounding word, all by itself. It sounds like it might be the name of a children’s game. When you decided to report your pharmaceutical company’s illegal promotion activities to the FDA, though, you became a whistleblower yourself. And it’s not a game.
It cost you your job, and maybe your career, but you’d do it all over again, because it was the right thing to do.
The money—as unlikely as it might seem to someone hearing your story—was not what meant the most to you. The pre-settlement funding from USClaims was important, of course; you used it to keep the house warm, the lights on, and your family fed. You would have had no choice but to declare bankruptcy had the funding not arrived when it did.
But what meant the most to you was the feeling that someone had your back; that they believed in you, supported you, helped you to fight for justice – not just for yourself, or your colleagues, but for the taxpayers whose money is what is really at stake when someone tries to defraud the government. Ever since you revealed what had been going on at your old company and had been fired for doing so, you had felt lonely and betrayed.
You thought you were doing the right thing. You did do the right thing. So you first reported your suspicions of fraud to your superiors. It wasn’t about the money then, either; you were not driven by any money you might recover from a qui tam lawsuit, but by honesty and responsibility. Unfortunately, what was right was not what the company wanted, and you were out of a job.
At first, you figured you would be okay. You worked hard, had a sparkling resume and strong recommendations. But then the industry blacklisted you. Your former employer’s legal team hounded you and threatened you with financial ruin.
Your accusations eventually would be proven true, but the company had everything to lose and continued to try to silence you – as if you didn’t have enough problems, just trying to make ends meet.
With money running out, you filed an application with USClaims. Your request was approved, and soon, the pre-settlement funding helped to buttress your bank account. There was no risk to you. USClaims gets paid only if you win your case or receive a cash settlement. The life of a plaintiff in a qui tam lawsuit can be a difficult one, but at USClaims, we understand. If you are in this situation, we will treat you with the respect you deserve.
