My daughter was killed by a speeding big-rig, should I file a wrongful death claim?

Details
Yesterday marked the 2 year anniversary of the day that my daughter had her life stolen from her. I lost my wife my little girl was born, and now that my daughter is gone too, I have no one. Two years ago, my daughter was on her way walking home from school, when the accident happened. I work just a few blocks away from her school, and our daily routine is that she walks 3 blocks and I meet her just halfway, she was only 8 years old. One afternoon, she decided that she was ready to make the trip to my office all by herself, and so I stood outside of my office knowing that she would approach soon. At the busy intersection just across the street from the office, she knew to wait to cross until the “walking” sign flashed. As she walked across the way a speeding 18 wheeler blew through the intersection not even seeing my daughter, and she was killed at the scene. I saw it all happen, and even though the man was arrested for vehicular manslaughter and a DUI, I want him to pay for killing my baby girl. Is my case appropriate to file for a wrongful death lawsuit?
