Sure if the matter is in the process of being settled when he dies, or very shortly thereafter, then it makes sense to collect the debt. I don't know when the cutoff is, but it's certainly not decades to centuries.

If you found today that your grandpa was a victim of a untold experiment, like when USA government give food with radiation to test the effects of radiation in humans in the 50's, and as consequence he died young and let your granma in difficult situation, you would sue USA government for the damage they did to your family.
I would not sue the government. His suffering has nothing to do with me. The damage is already too far removed at that point. Money won't right that wrong, and giving it to me certainly won't help anything. People that get compensated don't feel better anyhow.
