In the United States, a person, who is the victim of an accident due to the fault of another person or company, is entitled to compensation for injuries caused by the accident. If the person dies, the family is typically entitled to bring an action due to the death of a family member. Most States do not distinguish tourists from citizens as to legal rights for injuries or death caused by the negligence of another person or business.
