Railroad Accident Lawyers

If you work for Metro North, Amtrak, the Long Island Railroad, PATH, New Jersey Transit, or another railroad, your workplace injury is not covered by workers’ compensation insurance. Instead, in order to recover for any workplace injuries, you must prove that the railroad was at fault. That is why it is essential to have a skilled and experienced railroad injury lawyer fighting for you.

Steve Fitzgerald is that lawyer. For decades, Steve has been fighting for the injured, including under the Federal Employers Liability Act (FELA). He has tried numerous FELA cases to verdict, including recently obtaining an $11.6 million jury verdict for a locomotive engineer who was injured because of the negligence of his managers at New Jersey Transit.

If you have been injured by a railroad, protect your rights by contacting Steve today.

Led by Amanda DeMatteis, our team will provide you with accessible, competent, and attentive representation before the Workers’ Compensation Commission to secure the rights guaranteed by Connecticut law.

    Client Experiences

    During a very difficult employment situation, I was referred to Joe Garrison. Recognizing the volatile and time sensitive nature of my employment situation, Mr. Garrison met with me immediately (on the weekend no less). He listened to the details of my case, was able to think through possible creative solutions to offer the employer, and was responsive to my myriad of questions. He understood my concerns about litigation versus settlement, and he worked to find the best resolution possible. I am grateful to have had his support at a very difficult time. —J.C., New Haven, CT

    You will never meet a more knowledgeable and compassionate professional than Steve Fitzgerald. My employment situation was very complex, and Attorney Fitzgerald kept me focused while remaining extremely adept and “thinking on his feet.” Should the need present itself again, I would never seek anyone else’s counsel regarding employment issues. I cannot recommend him highly enough. — J.R., New Haven, CT

    Nina Pirrotti provided outstanding legal advice and was trustworthy, dependable, and responsive. From the start, I was confident that her knowledge and experience would obtain favorable results. On a more personal note, I enjoyed working with her and her staff and felt I was included in every part of the process. The dedication, concern, and interest in me as a client was greatly appreciated, and Nina has earned my highest recommendation. — J.H., Monroe, CT

    I recently found myself in need of a lawyer in handling a dispute with my former employer. I was fortunate to retain Josh Goodbaum as my legal counsel. His legal skills knowledge and professionalism shone through in every step of the process resulting in a very positive result. I highly recommend Josh if you find yourself in need of legal counsel. — S.R., Guilford, CT

    When I go to a lawyer for advice, I am usually anxious, particularly the first meeting. Amanda DeMatteis was clear in describing my options and immediately set me at ease. Realistic assessment is important, and Amanda was clear as to how to set up the case and the direction she felt we should go. I had total confidence in her abilities and knew I was being well represented against a large corporation. More importantly, we were successful! —N.M., Haddam, CT
