    If you were in a car crash and someone important to you died like your spouse of parents/siblings would you blame the person that caused the accident if the reason it happened was they had a heart attack or stroke whilst driving?

    I would be angry of course but since it’s out of their control I wouldn’t try to shame them or whatever for having a stroke. If it was something like being drunk or sleepy then I would sue them to kingdom come

    Then yes. Because if I don't take the offensive, their lawyer will come up with something to weasel them out of responsibility. Doesn't matter if they're not completely guilty.

    So? Someone died. They're responsible. Especially because strokes or heart attacks don't just happen. If you feel an unexplained numbness somewhere or tightness in your chest, then that's a sign that you're not feeling well and you might need to seek medical attention.

    So this question seems oddly specific, did this happen to you or someone you know?

    Anyway assuming I can still think rationally, and I have all the facts about the situation I could not reasonable blame the other driver. I might feel a little resentment if they were already in poor health and decided to risk driving anyway, but you cannot normally fault someone for something like a heart attack or a stroke.

    The other driver died so he could really blame a dead guy

    Pretty much my take on it. If they knew they had a pre-existing medical condition that could lead to heart failure/stroke then yeah, I might blame them for it. But it all depends on the situation and no amount of anger is going to bring my loved one back.

    It'd be a whole different story if they were DUI, on their phone/texting etc. I'd go all out to put them in jail.

    No you can still legitimately blame someone even if they've died. Although the fact they died might make blaming that person be in poor taste. In your example where the other party wasn't at fault, crashing because of an unpredictable medical emergency. Blaming them or their family would just be a tremendous dick move.

    If for example though you're uncle lost his legs to say a lunatic that deliberately crashed into him. Yeah that dude is horrible blame away, if you pull something like that people get to talk shit about you, even if you're dead.
