Connecticut FELA Railroad Injury Claims Attorney

Protecting Injured Workers and Prosecuting Whistleblower Retaliation

For over 30 years Attorney Charlie Goetsch has been protecting injured railroad workers and prosecuting whistleblower retaliation by employers. If you have been injured by a railroad, suffered whistleblower retaliation, or possess information showing fraud or waste involving governmental monies, give Charlie a call so he can start protecting your interests.

The FELA provides compensation for injured railroad workers. The FRSA prohibits railroads from retaliating against workers who report an injury or safety concern or who follow their treating doctor's orders not to work. And any individual with knowledge of fraud or waste involving governmental monies such as Medicare or defense contracts has the potential to recover large awards under the qui tam provisions of the False Claims Act, but only if he or she follows very special procedures.

More than a dozen of Charlie's cases have resulted in multimillion-dollar verdicts or settlements. He holds a LL.M. from Harvard Law School and was selected to the Connecticut Super Lawyer's® 2013 list in Plaintiff Employment Litigation. In a published decision upholding a landmark whistleblower jury verdict tried by Charlie, the federal judge recognized Attorney Goetsch's "nationally recognized specialization in train law" and stated for the record: "Attorney Charlie Goetsch is undeniably a leading specialist in the law governing railroad employees' rights, and his long-standing and highly developed practice makes him more efficient, creative, and effective for his railroad employee clients than an attorney of similar trial experience in federal litigation but without the benefits of his specialization." *

So if you have been injured by a railroad, suffered whistleblower retaliation, or possess information showing fraud or waste involving governmental monies, give Charlie a call so he can level the playing field while protecting your interests.
