Makarem & Associates Files Suit against Union Pacific Railroad

LOS ANGELES--()--Makarem and Associates sues Union Pacific Railroad Company for wrongful death stemming from the fatality of two young women who died in a train collision.

Renee Ammari, age 21, and Tanya Sayegh, age 18, suffered fatal injuries after a Union Pacific Railroad Company train collided with their disabled car near the Mission Inn Avenue grade crossing in Riverside, California on October 31, 2007.

The Plaintiffs are the parents and representatives of the Estates of Renee Ammari and Tanya Sayegh. Plaintiffs are represented by Ronald W. Makarem of the law firm Makarem & Associates and Imad Y. Elias of the Law Offices of Mann & Elias.

The Plaintiffs allege that Union Pacific Railroad Company and its employee crew were negligent in operating the train, failing to observe the Plaintiffs’ disabled car, and failing to apply its emergency brakes in time to avoid the collision. “Had the crew of the Union Pacific Railroad Company been alert and attentive, as per the rules governing railroad operations, they then would have seen the flashing, warning-hazard lights of the Plaintiffs’ vehicle and timely applied the emergency brakes. Their negligent actions resulted in the deaths of two young women,” says one of the Plaintiffs’ attorneys, Ron Makarem.

Union Pacific Railroad denies any negligence, alleging that the train was being operated properly, that there was no negligence on the part of Union Pacific Railroad or its crew.

The case of The Estate of Renee Ammari and The Estate of Tanya Sayegh v. Union Pacific Railroad Company, in County of Riverside, Case No. RIC 512012 is scheduled to begin trial on February 28, 2013.
