Federal Railroad Admin Propose Ban on Cell Phones & Electronic Devices
Posted on June 4th, 2010 by Zane Cagle
Last week the Federal Railroad Administration proposed the banning of the use of cell phones and electronic devices by railroad operating employees. Due to the increase in railroad accidents because of these devices, the FRA is considering these new rules. The language of these proposed rules cite examples of accidents with FELA related injuries attributed to the use of these types of distracting devices. Frequently, the injured party is a railroad employee and protected under FELA. A train accident attorney is required when railroad workers are injured in order to protect their legal rights.
