Generally, you can not sue for compensation for the loss or wrongful death of a sibling unless:
1) He was supporting you, so his death deprived you of support;
2) You are the executor or personal representative of his estate, in which case you can bring a lawsuit on behalf of the *estate*: any money you recover will go to the estate and, after paying any outstanding claims against or debts of your brother and any final expenses, will be distributed to those who inherit from him (his heirs and beneficiaries).
