False Claims Act or “qui tam” Actions


Whistleblowers have been crucial in recovering billions of dollars of fraud for our government.

An insider may ‘blow the whistle’ by bringing a lawsuit that is filed confidentially.

Companies who do business with the government must abide by federal and state laws and contract terms. In addition, companies that are publicly traded must abide by accounting rules and make truthful filings with the SEC. An insider is an employee or other person who has evidence of a violation that is not widely known to others outside of the company.

Under the False Claims Act, the whistleblower is entitled to a percentage of the recovery as a reward for coming forward with insider information. In addition, the whistleblower may be entitled to double the amount of his or her lost wages and other damages under the False Claims Act if he or she is retaliated against for blowing the whistle.

There are many situations where someone with evidence of wrongdoing can successfully “blow the whistle.”

  • Skilled nursing facilities (or “SNFs”), long-term care facilities, nursing homes, hospitals, pharmacies or hospice providers that are committing Medicare fraud, Medicaid fraud and/or fraud on the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (“CMS” fraud).
  • Billing Medicare and/or Medicaid for services that are not performed or not needed.
  • Billing Medicare and/or Medicaid for medication that is not administered or not needed.
  • Up-coding services for higher billing.
  • Paying (or offering to pay) kickbacks for referring business.
  • Healthcare entities such as pharmaceutical companies that pay (or offer to pay) kickbacks to doctors or pharmacists or other healthcare providers in exchange for favors such as writing prescriptions.
  • Companies that provide untruthful information to the government.
  • Companies that commit tax fraud, securities fraud, commodities fraud, investment fraud, insider trading and accounting fraud.
  • Companies that violate a law that involves public policy, e.g., violating environmental regulations.
  • Publicly traded companies that violate accounting principles and/or make false statements in SEC or other public filings

If an employer retaliates against the employee after voicing concerns about perceived unlawful conduct, the employee may have an individual whistleblowing claim for lost wages, emotional distress and punitive damages under federal and state law.

If you know about suspicious or unlawful activities and/or if you have been retaliated against after voicing concerns, contact Brous Law.

Choose Carrie

One look at this attorney’s successful career and you’ll know she’s the right choice.

Born Carrie Mulholland, she grew up in St. Louis, Missouri and went on to study journalism at the University of Missouri – Columbia and business at Sophia University in Tokyo, Japan. Carrie then returned to Mizzou and graduated with highest honors at the top of her law school class in 1996.

Carrie has twenty years of experience representing both plaintiffs and defendants. Although she represents plaintiffs now, Carrie excelled early in her career representing corporate defendants in the trial department of a large law firm in both Kansas City and St. Louis. Carrie’s defense experience has been extremely valuable in her representation of plaintiffs because she can see both sides of a case and anticipate defenses, which enhances her ability to advise her clients. In 2003, Carrie left her defense practice and founded Brous Horn. For 12 years this firm successfully represented employees and whistleblowers.

In 2015, Carrie founded Brous Law out of Prairie Village, KS where she remains committed to representing those seeking workplace justice and serving those who have been injured from drugs and medical devices. Carrie has an impressive case record of wins coupled with awards such as the individual “AV” rating by Martindale-Hubbell, the highest rating available.

Notable press coverage of Carrie Brous, Attorney cases:

  • ...honest, well prepared and respected amongst opposing counsel.
    KD, Plaintiff
  • My outcome was more favorable than I could have ever expected. They were incredibly focused on my case and made a difficult situation less stressful and easier to handle.
    JD, Plaintiff
  • Carrie is extremely competent, dedicated and tenacious. She was thorough in the assessment of my scenario from the start and straightforward in explaining that she does not take on frivolous cases, which in my mind underscores the high level of integrity of the firm. My case resulted in an exceptionally positive outcome, but even if it hadn’t, I would be offering this recommendation without reservation.
    CK, Plaintiff
  • …solid experience and knowhow combined with an approach that makes you feel at ease. The outcome of our case was far beyond my expectations.
    LW, Plaintiff
  • I was referred to Carrie Brous in late 2009 to consult on a gender discrimination matter and was immediately impressed with Carrie's understanding of the law as it related to my situation. Not only does she know the law, she also possesses a diplomatic prowess that caused opposing counsel to question what they initially believed to be true. This clearly benefited the outcome of my settlement.
    LB, Plaintiff
  • Workplace discrimination is illegal, but it isn't always something that’s easy to fight—and win. Carrie Brous was an expert and advocate for my gender discrimination case which was against a behemoth and well known financial institution; a firm that other attorneys did not want to go up against.
    LB, Plaintiff
  • Carrie was relentless in fighting for my rights. She was a tough negotiator in mediation and settlement negotiations. Carrie understood from the onset that my career and financial well being could be severely damaged if I didn't receive effective legal counsel. She fought strategically to obtain resolutions for me that compensated me for the harm I suffered, allowing me to move forward with my career and personal life.
    LB, Plaintiff
