    A woman I know recently lost her son in a fatal car accident in which a 17 year old driver struck a tree and killed all of the passengers in the car. The driver himself, walked away from the accident. Toxicology reports confirm use of illegal substances. Can the woman and her husband still sue the driver and/or his family even though they are not here legally? What other information should I tell her regarding how she should proceed?

    Yes, they can sue. Anyone can sue. The lawyer they visit will discuss their options. There are problems with this, but get them to see a couple attorneys. Then they can decide.
