Thorny Legal Issues Surround “Rollover” Deaths in Car Accidents

When a fatigued driver hits another car and the accident results in the death of a passenger in the other car, prosecutors are divided on how to treat these deaths. In some cases, plaintiffs choose to file negligence charges and sue for compensatory damages. In others, plaintiffs do not file charges, believing the pain from the tragedy is enough to punish the careless driver.

These cases, and other auto accident deaths that result from negligent drivers, are commonly called “rollover” accidents. These accidents are often tricky to prosecute because of the difficulty of gathering evidence. Investigators are usually unable to gather evidence proving that the driver was fatigued or driving in a similar careless way.
