Effective Demonstrative Evidence

We always look for ways to get the most value for our litigation expense investment. Not long ago, I secured a defense verdict in a case where the plaintiff turned left in front of a truck driven by my client. The issue was whether or not he had time to react and avoid the collision.  Using a radar gun and exemplar vehicle, the plaintiff’s expert recreated what he believed was the acceleration of the plaintiff’s vehicle through the interchange.  One of our most effective demonstrative exhibits was a split screen clip comparing the product of the expert’s calculations (on the right) with the actual flow of traffic at the time of day when the accident occurred.  Click here if video embed does not appear below.
