Buy everything I ever wanted
Donate it to worthy causes
A little of both
I don't think I would even sue the dump truck company to start with. It was an accident, and it's certainly not going to bring the child back. If, for some unknown reason, I did sue, I could never use the money - not even a dime of it. I wouldn't want a daily reminder of where it came from.
But no, I don't think I'd even sue. I'd want to move on from the memory of what happened, and if you sue, you are going to relive it over and over, for months. Just let it go. It's just money.

I won't come on here and bluntly lie...I wouldn't give it all to charity.
I would make sure that I would have enough to get a few things and maintain a good lifestyle.
I would also open a charity and start it out with about half of the two million settlement. From there, I would spread the message and take donations. I would try to multiply that first million as much as possible.
Would I take the full 2 million and go to charity? Probably not....that is my honest answer.

Oddly enough, when my Mother was eight years old, she witnessed a toddler getting backed over by a dump truck. Same accident, different generation. Her brain responded quickly and censored the visual input so that she can't remember what it really looked like.
Obviously, we need a ban on dump trucks.
I would deposit the money into the 20 banks that it would require for FDIC protection. Then I would retire instantly on the spot. When I decided that the interest payments were way too high for maintaining my frugal life style, I would make healthy donations to many respected charities in my deceased child's name, for the rest of my life.
D0GBREATH, DOES THIS INAUGURAL GOWN MAKE MY ASS LOOK BIG?The jokes write themselves!
No amount of money can replace the child...IMO, its better that the dump truck company just pay the burial expenses...and this is more than they are obligated to do...The villain (if there is such a thing) is the parents who place their gain of wealth to be more important than the welfare of their offspring..
