Ross Feller Casey Uses Technology to Reach Jurors and Successfully Litigate Cases in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and beyond.
Ross Feller Casey embraces technology and utilizes demonstrative evidence to streamline highly complex concepts for jurors. Effectively reaching jurors is the goal of every civil litigator, and the attorneys at Ross Feller Casey are among the very best at it.
As every attorney knows, the successful litigation of cases has many components, one of which is to demonstrate to the jury precisely what happened clearly and understandably. Often, testimony can become very technical in civil litigation, and it may be difficult for the average person to understand. Through technology, Ross Feller Casey can reach jury members, giving them a basic understanding of the mechanics of the accident or medical mistake, even in the most complicated of cases.
Simplifying the complex nature of medical malpractice and personal injury litigation can challenge many litigators. Presenting animations to the jury is one way that Ross Feller Casey has been able to simplify explanations of medical conditions, demonstrate how malpractice or negligence occurred, and present visuals of how physical injuries were sustained.
It is widely accepted that jurors only retain about 20% of the oral testimony that they hear during trials. However, estimates suggest they can retain up to 65% if they simultaneously listen to and view the evidence. So, in addition to simplifying complex concepts for jurors, utilizing animations and other demonstrative evidence works because it is easier for jurors to remember something they have seen. This is especially true for cases that last longer than a few days. Further, psychological studies show that visual presentations can communicate facts faster, and the audience has a more accurate recall of the information presented for extended periods.
Ross Feller Casey employs these visual methods for litigation in front of a jury, and their past performance has shown that doing so results in educating the jury more effectively than oral testimony alone.
