1. SIGHT UNSEEN
Perspectives play a huge role in many cases. Whether you’re a plaintiff or defense attorney, it’s safe to assume you’ve had to argue your client’s ability to see or not see an avoidable or unavoidable scenario. Giving the jury the ability to “be in the driver’s seat” is one of the most useful applications of 3D animation.
In this animation we literally put the jury in the driver’s seat to show how this unfortunate situation was completely unavoidable. We created animations from multiple perspectives including an eyewitness, the driver, and the plaintiff.
2. THE TIME MACHINE DEMONSTRATIVE
It’s not uncommon for investigations of cases to happen weeks, months, or even years after the fact. During this time the environment can change in a multitude of ways. Trees which previously blocked the field of view have been removed, a crosswalk has since been installed, or time has run its course and degradation of a previously safe area has now become unsafe. 3D animation can recreate these scenes to make sure your jury has an accurate depiction of the area at the time the incident took place.
The roadway in this animation had changed considerably between the time of the collision and the site inspection. We used forensic animation to capture the scene exactly as it was at the time of the crash, the quintessential “Time Machine”.
3. COULD HAVE, SHOULD HAVE, WOULD HAVE…
What would have happened to your client if that department store had installed the hand-rail to code? What would have happened had the plaintiff been traveling at the speed limit instead of 15 MPH faster? 3D animation has the power to ask and answer any of these questions.
A great example of this in action is the “avoidance scenario”. We show exactly what would have happened had the plaintiff applied proper braking pressure along a proper path as opposed to trying to swerve around the truck.
