A man was driving a scooter when another vehicle drove onto the curve, ran him over, and catastrophically injured his right leg.
X-rays showed clear evidence of distal comminuted femur fractures; open, displaced fracturing throughout the mid-tibia diaphysis; and nondisplaced fracturing of the distal fibular metadiaphysis. The victim would require an open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) to reduce his femur fractures.
Negin Roberts, Esq., needed a visual presentation that would summarize her client’s brutal leg injuries and demonstrate the surgical procedures he would need in his ongoing road to recovery. We delivered an illustration series that would achieve the following visual objectives:
Illustrate the victim’s brutal leg injuries alongside colorized X-rays that would highlight fractures.
Demonstrate the step-by-step ORIF surgery the victim would undergo to have his femur fractures reduced.
Illustrating the Leg Injuries
The first illustration introduces viewers to the victim’s initial injuries he suffered as a result of the MVC. The exhibit features an illustrated depiction of the victim’s severely damaged leg alongside colorized X-rays films that highlight the devastating fractures throughout the femur and tibia.

Demonstrating the ORIF Surgery
After establishing the initial injury, the next illustration walks viewers through the step-by-step ORIF procedure the Plaintiff would need to undergo to have his femur fractures reduced. The first image depicts the reduction of the distal femur fracture. Next, plates and screws are installed into the femur to secure the area. Finally, a colorized X-ray concludes the presentation with the Plaintiff’s post-op condition after having hardware installed in his leg.
