In cases involving insurance, it is important for the judge and jury to understand how a claim applies or does not apply to an insurance policy. Simply reading from a policy and explaining the facts and circumstances behind a claim is not always an effective way to prevail in a case. Using visual aids to help a judge and jurors visualize the claim, in contrast, create a lasting impact. At TrialSpectrum, Inc., our trial technology experts and litigation consultants are available to help you determine which visual aids are best for your case and work with you to create these aids for use in your legal proceeding.


Trial Boards


Though many attorneys wonder if trial boards are an outdated type of exhibit, a printed board still has its place in the courtroom. A trial board remains in sight for however long an attorney likes, as compared to a slide or display on a monitor, which may disappear after a few moments so that the next piece of information may be displayed. When reading the details of a claim, it is often helpful to have policy language displayed on a trial exhibit board so that the jury may immediately compare the facts of the case to the policy itself.


Graphics


Whether your client represents the insurance company or one of its policyholders, it is important to detail the correspondence that was sent between the parties. Did the insured submit all required documentation? Did the insurance company take too long to communicate with the insured? Graphics that display letters sent from the insurance company or documents sent in by the insured can help the judge and jury understand what happened throughout the duration of the claim.


Photographs


Many insurance claims involve requests for damages that include medical expenses, lost wages, and other losses stemming from injuries. Printing or displaying photographs of injuries, x-rays, medical records, and other documents can be quite helpful to allow the audience to understand the extent of one’s injuries.


Similarly, in cases involving property damage or theft, photos of the damage or stolen items are often central to the case. It is easy to say a building caught on fire, but showing photos of a scorched building with its interior ruined is a much more powerful method of delivering the message.


Animations


In some insurance cases, it can be difficult to understand how an incident occurred. Some jurors may not understand how extensive injuries resulted from a seemingly minor car accident. Others may not understand how a small dent ruined an expensive piece of farming equipment. Animations may be used to bring these claims to life. With the trial technology team at TrialSpectrum, Inc., we can create an animation that details exactly what you need for the judge and jury to understand.


Videos


There are a number of ways in which videos may be used in an insurance claim. For example, security footage or doorbell camera footage may be used if it captured the disputed incident. Video interviews of witnesses may also be useful. If injuries are involved in the insurance claim, a “day-in-the-life” video that shows how an incident has impacted the daily life of an individual are often powerful tools.


Our videographers and video editing team are available to record interviews and depositions for you and provide editing services where needed. Our video editors can enhance quality, edit clips, reduce background noise, and even add captions. Whether you need to rent video recording equipment or would like to hire our videographers and video editors, we can help.

Trial technology is never static—it changes constantly with the courtroom environment and with the expectations of juries and judges. The courtroom has undergone especially dramatic changes since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic nearly two years ago. An increase in the use of technology, a greater number of virtual proceedings, and other changes have caused many attorneys to revamp their trial advocacy skills. At TrialSpectrum, Inc., we can help your firm understand the expectations juries have in today’s courtroom and work with you to build presentations that are compelling and impressive to these decision-makers.


It’s All About the Technology


As coronavirus cases skyrocketed in much of the country, many courtrooms installed various pieces of equipment to allow for virtual hearings and trials. Video screens are displayed in several areas of many courtrooms. In some jury boxes, jurors have individual screens to view exhibits, such as photographs and documents.


When jurors walk into a courtroom and see this equipment, they expect it to be used. Therefore, attorneys need to be prepared to present exhibits on large screens. They should use video footage, animations, recorded interviews, and the like. Even having a PowerPoint presentation that highlights text from a document may grab attention better than simply displaying the document itself.


At TrialSpectrum, Inc., our trial technology experts are prepared to help you create a presentation that wows the jury. We are able to create animations, video presentations, graphics, and other visual aids that you may pair with your arguments to persuade the jury.


Be Organized


Jurors are required to take time away from their work and families to serve on jury trials. They are in the courtroom to view a trial and make a decision. Therefore, an attorney who is unorganized may be viewed as one who is disrespectful to the jurors, and even to the judge. The jurors may think, “We have to be here to observe this trial, and this attorney is not even prepared?”


A well-prepared attorney will impress the jury. Providing an easy-to-follow timeline of events as well as exhibits that are easy to see, hear, and understand will go far with most jurors. At TrialSpectrum, Inc., we work with attorneys in all types of cases to create presentations that are organized and easy to follow. We can create animations, organize PowerPoints, and edit video footage. Our team will explain what techniques are persuasive to jurors, depending on your jury pool and the facts of your case.


With our assistance, you will appear professional, experienced, and thoroughly prepared. Our team is also available to offer technological support before and during your proceeding so that you may focus on your arguments.
