The United States as a nation is a melting pot and certainly the state of California is very representative of this. Regardless of nationality or country of origin, every person in California should be able to feel safe on the road or know that protection is available to them if an accident occurs.

The family members and friends of a woman killed in a recent accident in Los Angeles' North Hills may well be wondering what type of protection or compensation they may be entitled to given the odd nature of the accident in which she died. Her passenger sedan was hit from behind by a man who is reported to have been drunk and possible speeding at the time. In addition, the 45-year-old man is not legally allowed to be in the United States and it is unknown if he had a driver's license or any viable auto insurance.

Reports indicate that the man has more than 20 prior criminal incidents on his record spanning over he last 27 years. These include prior driving under the influence offenses as well as charges related to drugs, crimes and other traffic accidents. He has also been legally removed from the country on prior occasions.

After the tragic loss of a loved one, family members may find it useful to talk with an attorney who understands the law and may be able to counsel people on their options in these situations.
