23. How do you know?
Really, you're assuming the worst of the family. Maybe they have just accepted that this was a tragic accident that happened because their child didn't do what all kids are always told to do when riding in vehicles.

The fact that we live in a litigous society doesn't give you the right to assume the worst about a family of which you know nothing.
