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 a vehicle and a truck, both subjects of litigation. Both the police and expert's reports will certainly point out the facts but will these alone be enough for a jury to fully understand how this accident happened?
We created a 60 second animation for Master, Weinstein, Schatz and Boyer in Philadelphia, PA, presenting a reenactment of an accident between a passenger car, pickup and a fully loaded tractor trailer. The passenger car was involved in a broadside, or "T-bone" collision, it's passenger suffering serious injuries to her face and torso.
We were asked to show three perspectives of this accident. We started with an overhead perspective of the intersection with the three vehicles in play, then a view from the passenger's window and finally the truck driver's perspective. This enabled a viewer to get a much more dramatic view of the accident, especially from the driver's perspective. Simply seeing it from an overhead view, one could assume it was avoidable. The closer we were able to show the impending impact, the more immediate it appeared. At this point of telling your story, dynamic perspectives can mean the difference between an audience's keen interest or indifference.
The combination of both testimony and animation becomes extremely powerful with a viewer basing their decision on an objective opinion of both the expert's testimony and the emotional impact of being in the plaintiff's shoes. Instantly, it puts a 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."
