Using Visual Aids in Personal Injury and Medical Malpractice Cases



For jurors who have little experience with reading medical records and applying legal concepts, personal injury and medical malpractice cases can be extremely confusing. At TrialSpectrum, Inc., we create visual aids for attorneys to use in their hearings, mediations, and trials to send strong, persuasive messages to judges and jurors.


Medical Illustrations and Animations


Medical Illustrations and animations are an excellent tool in personal injury and medical malpractice cases. The intricate processes in the human body can be difficult to understand if a witness is explaining them on the witness stand during a trial. An animation that shows how an injury occurs or how a disease develops in part of the body is a powerful way to support an argument for or against malpractice.


During a series of photos or slides from a PowerPoint presentation, jurors may draw their own conclusions about what happened in a case. However, with an animation, which provides a start-to-finish visual, jurors are less likely to draw their own conclusions about what happened.


Exhibit Boards


Exhibit boards are a classic tool for the courtroom. At TrialSpectrum, Inc., we can print exhibit boards in various sizes and finishes depending on your needs for your hearing or trial. In complex personal injury or medical malpractice cases, it can be helpful to have text from medical records or depositions blown up for the jury to read and remember, especially alongside photos and other visual aids.


One effective way to use an exhibit board is to compare and contrast the standard of care with the care the patient received. The standard of care can be broken down into individual bullet points, boxes, or other easy-to-read formats. Using checkboxes and other visual aids to mark whether the standard of care was met, the jury will be able to see where, if anywhere, a medical professional was negligent.


These tools are effective for both plaintiffs and defendants. At TrialSpectrum, Inc., we are able to create visual aids that support your arguments, no matter which side of the case you are on.


Detailed Photos


At TrialSpectrum, Inc., we are able to print high resolution photo boards for you to use in your case. In medical malpractice cases, detailed photos can be a valuable tool to show injuries or various conditions. Photos of injuries, x-ray scans, and other such photos can be printed to highlight different matters for the judge and jury. At TrialSpectrum, Inc., we complete all of our printing services in-house to ensure we provide our clients with excellent quality products. Additionally, keeping our printing services in-house keeps costs lowered.
