Railroad attorneys have stated that they plan to appeal against the award. However, Maureen commented to the verdict by saying: “I felt good. And I feel like this whole, last two, past years isn't a waste ... This will help.”
The incident occurred when Maureen’s car cut out on the railway tracks. Her boyfriend was driving the vehicle behind her, and tried to push her vehicle out of the way with his own. However, this did not help and the train collided with her car.
According to Union Pacific representatives, Martin’s car was actually in the clear until her boyfriend tried to push it across the tracks. However, the family of the girl claim that railroad workers were aware of the dangers of that track and should have been able to stop the train.
