    It all depends. Like I said elsewhere the whole idea of suing someone is to compensate someone for a loss they suffered through the negligence of the person being sued. Whether or not you can compensate someone for a dead child is a completely different question.


    That the negligent person is dead really doesn't matter. Someone still suffered a loss and should be paid for it. Look at it this way. Say someone T-boned you and you were injured and have hundreds of thousands in medical bills and are out of work for a year. The other driver is killed. You would not sue the other person (their estate anyway) because they're dead? You'd eat all those losses?

    But what about if the other driver was strangled by their assetless passenger and their death is what caused the collision?

    Apples and oranges. The people suing are not the ones dead.

    I thought killing was one of the main purposes of a gun.

    Ever heard of the second amendment? She was legally and morally entitled to own and possess the guns. However she should have safeguarded them to keep her mentally ill son from getting his hands on them.

    Is killing a synonym for murder?

    Why does that matter? People sue when family members are injured or killed. This is no different. Unless you're arguing that only the injured person can sue someone and not next if kin.
