FELA Attorney Announces FRA to Ban Electronic Devices and Cell Phone Usage for Railroad Operating Employees

New rules being proposed by the FRA to prevent railroad employees from using cell phones and mobile devices while on the job. These changes will help to prevent negligent errors while operating railroad equipment and trains.

    TEXAS CITY, TX, June 04, 2010 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The Federal Railroad Administration last week proposed two new rules banning the use of electronic devices and cell phones by railroad operating employees. The FRA is taking action due to the increasing danger of railroad accidents due to the use of distracting devices while on the job. The increasing frequency of these accidents with injuries dictates action to remedy the electronic distractions.

The text of the proposed rules provides examples of accidents with FELA-related injuries due to the use of distracting electronic devices. In the majority of the accidents cited, the injured parties are railroad employees protected under FELA. When railroad workers are hurt in a train collision, a train accident attorney is a necessary asset to ensure protection of their legal rights.
