MULTI-VEHICLE INTERSECTION COLLISION
An argument in a car late at night, a fully loaded tractor trailer unable to stop in time, a young passenger seriously injured, and the driver of the vehicle and the truck, both subjects of litigation. Both the police and expert’s reports will certainly point out the facts at mediation but will these alone be enough to fully see how the accident happened?
We created a 60 second 3D animation Master Weinstein Schatz and Moyer in Philadelphia, presenting a reenactment of an accident between a passenger car, a pick up truck and a fully loaded tractor trailer. The passenger car was involved in a broadside or “T-bone” collision, the passenger suffering serious injuries to her face and torso.
We were asked to show three viewpoints of the accident. We started with an overhead perspective of the intersection with the three vehicles in play, then the view from the passenger’s window and finally the truck driver’s perspective. This enabled the viewer to get a much more dramatic view of the accident, especially from the passenger’s perspective. Simply seeing it from an overhead view, one could assume it was avoidable. The closer we were able to show the view of impending impact, the more immediate it appeared. What looks avoidable from afar becomes a whole different story when an 80,000 pound truck is bearing down on you. At this point of telling your story, the proper perspectives can mean the difference between an audience’s keen interest or indifference.
The combination of both testimony and 3D animation becomes extremely powerful with the viewer basing their decision on their objective opinion of the expert’s testimony and the emotional impact of being in the other person’s shoes. It immediately puts the viewer at the scene and shows where the vehicles were and when.
From our client:
"Bob did a tremendous job for me recently in creating an animation which I was able to use at a mediation to really focus the insurance adjusters on how a collision occurred and how after viewing the animation that a jury would likely conclude that both defendants shared in liability."
