Railroad workers who are injured or killed
on the job are covered by a special federal law,
the Federal Employers Liability Act (FELA).
The employees of many industries are protected from employer retaliation for whistleblowing and other protected activities.
The False Claims Act punishes the dishonest
use of governmental monies and thus deters
others from defrauding taxpayers.
A Proven Attorney For Railroad, False Claims, and Whistleblower Cases
Charles Goetsch has been protecting injured railroad workers and prosecuting false claims and whistleblower retaliation for decades. If you have been injured by a railroad, suffered retaliation for blowing the whistle, or have knowledge of false claims against the government, you can rely on him to protect your interests.
A Thorough Understanding of the Issues At Stake
The FELA provides compensation for injured railroad workers. The FRSA prohibits railroads from retaliating against workers who report an injury or safety concern. And under the
False Claims Act, any individual with knowledge of fraud involving governmental monies such as Medicare or federal contracts has the potential to recover large awards, but only if he or she follows very special procedures.

Recognized Nationally As a ‘Leading Specialist’
Over a dozen of Charlie’s cases have resulted in multimillion-dollar verdicts or settlements. He holds an LL.M. from Harvard Law School and every year since 2012 has been selected for inclusion to the Connecticut Super Lawyers 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 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.”
