Legal Representation for Military Personnel
The Carlson Law Firm represents military men and women who have been hurt or victimized by military contractors.

What are “qui tam” claims?
In the United States, any individual who has information about possible fraud, negligence or another type of violation on behalf of a military contractor can bring a “qui tam” claim according to the U.S.C. § 3729 on behalf of the federal government for offenses committed against it. Sometimes, this type of claim is referred to as “Lincoln Law.” Essentially, it allows whistleblowers to bring claims against federal defense contractors for alleged fraud and misconduct.

Potential Claims Against Military Contractors
The Carlson Law Firm is prepared to represent individuals who may have claims against military contractors. One of the most common claims that have surfaced in recent months against defense contractors involves toxic exposure. One example of this was various military men and women who were exposed to contaminated water at the Qarmat Ali water treatment plant in Iraq. Some who were exposed are now suffering from various types of respiratory problems.
Another claim was filed against KBR by the family of a military member who was killed by electrocution on a military base. Although the lawsuit was initially denied, the family appealed and a judge ruled that the case against KBR did have merit. Other military members might have claims related to other types of toxic exposure, burns, chemicals and more.
