The attorneys at Ross Feller Casey have established themselves as a leading team of litigators. Their work in the courtroom and their track record of multi-million dollar verdicts demonstrates their expertise as successful trial attorneys. One way that they accomplish that is by embracing technology and utilizing demonstrative evidence to streamline technically complex concepts for jurors. Effectively reaching jurors is the goal of every civil litigator, and the attorneys at Ross Feller Casey are no exception.
How Does Ross Feller Casey Incorporate Demonstrative Evidence into Litigation?
As every attorney knows, the successful litigation of cases has many components, one of which is the ability to demonstrate to the jury exactly what happened in a manner that is clear and understandable. Often in civil litigation, testimony can become very technical in nature and it may be difficult for the average person to understand. Through the use of technology, Ross Feller Casey is able to 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 be a challenge for 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. The following animations are examples of how utilizing demonstrative evidence can result in favorable outcomes for clients.
Why Using Demonstrative Evidence Works
It is widely accepted that jurors only retain about 20% of the oral testimony that they hear during trials. However, it is estimated that they can retain up to 65% if they are simultaneously hearing about and viewing 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 that 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 more accurate recall of the information presented for a longer period of time.
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.
