Disobedient Driver Causes Collision
This animation clearly shows that the disobedient driver had every opportunity to correct their actions, but chose to be unsafe.
Sometimes, in spite of countless warnings, distracted drivers will continue to plow forward, heedless of said cautionary markers.
This is the case depicted in the animation. A disobedient driver had eight warnings that should have served as an indicator of an upcoming intersection.
The driver was completely negligent until the very last second, when he slowed from 68MPH to 37MPH, but it wasn’t nearly enough to avoid the life-alterning collision that followed.
Sometimes you have to see something to believe it. This pickup truck driver had plenty of indicators signaling an upcoming intersection. He clearly avoided them, and was distracted enough to cause a devastating wreck.
The black box data retrieval gave enough information to put together the irresponsible driver’s speed before and upon impact, which proved beyond doubt that he was absolutely at fault in this collision.
To provide legitimacy to our renderings, we can overlay actual photos from the incident, and show in real life the damages sustained by both vehicles.
Legal Animation for Accident Reconstruction
You may ask why a legal animation would be helpful when reconstructing an incident. The answer is simple. Animations demonstrate liability by showing that a collision could have been avoided if a certain party avoided negligent behavior. For example, without the use of a visual aid, it would be challenging to depict to a jury the exact location of a vehicle in reference to a place they might have never been.
Oftentimes, we find that the facts in a case are complex and challenging to understand for the average person. In a society that is inundated with visual media, it’s critical to be able to teach them the ins and outs of a situation in a way that they’ll be able to understand. If you’ve heard somebody say “I’d have to see it to believe it,” then you know the extraordinary value of providing a visual display for the jury in order for them to understand.
Mark Dombroff says it best: “The varied uses of courtroom visual aids are limited only by your imagination. Legal graphic consultants and artists can be an important part of your team, in helping you highlight salient points, increase comprehension, illustrate the unknown and hard-to-imagine, permit audiences to digest large amounts of data quickly and easily, increase critical events in an evidentiary chain, add dramatic effect [and] make your presentation effective.”
Legal Graphics Help Jurors Decide
Jurors are more likely to sympathize with your client’s injuries when they see that the defendant’s actions were blatantly negligent. Adjusting points of view allows jurors to evaluate a driver’s actions from multiple angles. We work with such precision that our animations have actually been used as substantive evidence, not just demonstrative.
In our extensive experience developing crash reconstruction animations, we’ve done trucking collisions, multi-vehicle collisions, low-speed spine injuries, motorcycle collisions, and many other kinds of incidents. We perform FARO scanning, topographical mapping, forensic analysis, and nighttime visibility studies to determine the precise circumstances under which the incident occurred.
