Steps to Visualize Your Client’s Damages in any Personal Injury Case
Your personal injury case is dependent on a few key issues. Who is responsible for injuring your client? How reckless was their negligence in causing the injury? How much damage did the injury cause for the victim? If you only answer these questions verbally, the impact is much less convincing than if you show your audience.
If you are working on a personal injury case, it is time you look into demonstrative evidence. Scene reconstruction and 3D animations are fundamental pieces to be used in any type of presentation, particularly in personal injury. In a case like this, determining a verdict can be a very difficult task. This is where demonstrative evidence can become a powerful persuasion tool! By using demonstrative evidence, you will be allowing the judge and jury to see the evidence as it relates to the causation of the events.
You can build a strong visual presentation that most effectively communicates the full extent of your client’s pain and suffering through five simple steps:
Step #1 Summarize Their Injuries
The first step to any personal injury case is to summarize the totality of your client’s injuries. This can and should be done in one cohesive visual that will lay the foundation of your audience’s understanding of the victim’s initial pain and suffering. You can maximize the effectiveness of this strategy through illustration and 3D animation.
Step #2 Magnify Significant Injury
Once you’ve established the totality of damages, you will next need to move on and focus your audience’s attention on the most significant injuries that matter most to your argument. Which injury or aspect of the injury affected your client’s life the most?
Step #3 Simplify Complex Anatomy and Science
Your judge and jury aren’t made up of medical experts. Much of the body can be confusing for a layperson to understand. The next step is to explain not only which body parts were injured, but what these body parts do when they function normally, how it would feel, and how it would impact a person’s life.
Step #4 Demonstrate the Medical Efforts
Don’t simply tell the audience how your client was injured; also show them the exhaustive steps that medical professionals had to take in order to save and repair them. Visualizing the step-by-step process through which your client was healed paints a much more compelling picture of the true devastation on their body.
Step #5 Emphasize Ongoing Pain and Suffering
It isn’t enough that your client had an injury. You may make an argument that this injury has long-lasting consequences. You could finish by showing the ongoing pain and suffering your client continues to experience, or debilitating immobility.
