To sue or not to sue

After last weekend's road trip to Vegas fiasco, a lot of people have been telling us we should sue the rental car company and/or Jeep. I don't know though. I don't want to be one of those people who sue for no reason. As long as we aren't liable for the car and the company compensates us for what was lost in the fire, I'll be happy. I have to admit, the thought of suing is pretty appealing. We did miss out on a Vegas vacation. We could've potentially been hurt in the fire or ran over or hit on the freeway as we ran away from the burning car. And the thing that bothers me the most is that I didn't get to see my uncle one last time. My uncle has been very sick for the past few months and it's getting down to the end for him. He's been in the ICU for a week and a half now. That weekend we would've been in Vegas would've been the last time I would've seen him alive. That lost opportunity right there is priceless.

I'm very similar to you, and think people jump into lawsuits for the wrong reasons (funny given my profession, right?) But I did want to express my condolences regarding your uncle. My sympathies are with you.
