Your father was a passenger in a vehicle and killed Should you file a wrongful death suit?

Whether or not there is a basis for a wrongful death suit depends upon many factors, so "should" is really not the question. For example, most states have statutes (laws) that specify the capacities of people who can sue for the wrongful death of another, and a big factor would be whether or not you were dependent upon your father for financial support. If you were, all other things being equal, you would have measurable damages. Another factor to consider is whether the wrongdoer had auto insurance or has other assets from which recovery can be made.
