For medical malpractice cases, custom or semi-custom medical illustrations are often required. Quality illustrations can serve as visual aids for experts to use during testimony and as educational tools for the jury. Typically, the illustrators will scour key deposition testimony and medical records for case-specific descriptions of events and render the illustration from that information.

Full Color Graphic EnlargementsLarge-format color printing provides a powerful method of communication at a very reasonable cost – improving visibility for personal photos, color documents, PowerPoint slides, custom illustrations, graphic overlays and other visual aids. These graphic boards can also be laminated with a film that allows for easy annotation with a dry-erase marker.
Video to transcript synchronization involves time-stamping the transcript to correspond to the digital video. This step makes locating specific segments of video simpler and faster, because their precise location is identified on the associated transcript.
Synchronization can be valuable during the pre-trial preparation stage, enabling a paralegal or legal secretary to search the video simply by searching the transcript. For trial, video clips can be created for jury presentation. Synchronization also allows deposition text to scroll below the video — adding emphasis to the video.
Digital Fetal Monitor Strips
Designed for “baby cases,” these strips are created by digitally reattaching the separate pages of a fetal heart monitor read-out and indicating case-relevant events for jury presentation. These strips are highly customizable and offer a number of features that can be extremely valuable during presentation. Some of these include:
- A Realtime button
- Highlighting tools
- Search By Time And Panel tool
- Definitions of key medical terms
- Hyperlinks to medical records
An in-office demonstration is a great way to experience the full power of this unique tool.
Animations are useful in complex or highly technical cases such as medical malpractice or patent litigation. While they can range in price from $8,000 to $25,000 and beyond, they can be incredibly powerful in educating a jury.
Important: Animations can take months to complete. In many states, including Maryland, and in Washington, D.C., a period of time for review must be given to opposing counsel. Check your local code for the rules in your jurisdiction.
