Did you know that most jurors, and many judges, are mainly visual learners who are more likely to process visual information rather than a lengthy verbal explanation?
This is true for many of us – visual aids are known to help a person better understand complex information, ensure that they retain key information and can also increase persuasion.
In fact, statistics show that humans can remember up to 80% of what they see, 10% of what they hear and 20% of what they read. This goes to show that incorporating visual aids like animation into your legal strategy can have a very significant and powerful impact on the outcome of your case.
Legal animations for motor vehicle collisions and other types of cases have been around for a very long time, but as technology has increasingly evolved and become more modern, we’re seeing more legal teams utilizing animation services as part of their strategy. Powerful car accident animations can breathe life into the case and help a judge and jury to connect the dots between witness testimony, expert opinions, police records, verbal presentations and other physical evidence.
Putting together a presentation for a case and spending countless hours poring over testimony and evidence is not an easy job, and we have worked with legal teams who have worked really hard on a case only to have the jury miss the key points of their argument or completely misunderstand complex ideas.
You can line up multiple expert witnesses who can testify for hours explaining information and material that the jury will have a difficult time understanding. This is why it is always helpful to offer a visual aid as a part of your presentation – trial animations of auto collisions will bring the case to life and help the jury connect the dots between physical evidence and verbal testimony.
Everyone has heard the saying “a picture is worth a thousand words,” and this could not be any more true than in the courtroom, where car accident animations can be a very powerful tool that can make the difference between a successful argument and losing the case. When the audience in a courtroom watches legal animations for motor vehicle collisions it will become clear to them exactly what happened, and they’ll be able to reach a fair verdict without issue.
In order to achieve successful results we work closely with our clients, experts in the field, witness testimony, law enforcement and other agencies to ensure that the graphics and animations we produce are admissible, accurate and believable.
Our team will physically visit the location of a crime, or where an incident took place, and we will collect important and unique data to help us create effective trial graphics and animations from a first-hand perspective. We also utilize modern technology like 3D laser scanning to ensure that our content is scientifically accurate and consistent.
When it comes to recreating a scenario as an animation, it’s important for the final product to be realistic and accurate so that it can be admitted to trial. We’re proud to share that our graphics and animations have a 99% admittance rate, and we’ve seen more than $750 million in favorable verdicts and settlements for our clients.
Car accidents can be very difficult to describe and explain, especially if there were no witnesses. And if neither party will admit fault it becomes even more complicated, especially if someone sustained serious injuries or damages.
There are many factors that come into play when it comes to liability including speed, weather conditions, complex maneuvers and more. This is why car accident animations can be so valuable during mediation or trial – our team can accurately replicate any motor vehicle collision so the audience in the courtroom can witness in real time exactly what happened.
Using legal animations for motor vehicle collisions does not make up for poor communication or replace evidence and witness testimony. Rather, this should be used as a visual tool to boost the likelihood of a favorable verdict by helping to increase the jury’s understanding and retention of the information that is shared with them.
Legal animations can be a very powerful tool when combined with evidence and a strong presentation – our team will work with you to create a custom product for the unique needs of your case.
