After a driver crossed over the centerline of a Chicago street at a relatively low speed, he collided head-on into the front of a cement mixer, severely injuring the plaintiff’s cervical spine.
Video from the Plaintiff’s dash cam established clear liability on behalf of the Plaintiff driver, but the Defense hired three experts to testify that the minor impact could not have caused the Plaintiff’s spine injury because, they testified, the Plaintiff was driving a “tank.”
Cervical spine Injured in cement mixer collision.
Timothy Cavanagh, Esq., and Michael Sorich, Esq., needed a visual presentation that would establish the causation of their client’s injury, amplify his pain and suffering, and show the invasive surgical experience he would need to undergo as a result. We built them a visual presentation that would achieve the following visual objectives:
Illustrate the mechanism of injury that disrupted the victim’s spine during the collision.
Highlight the painful disc protrusions and anterolisthesis the victim sustained throughout his neck.
Demonstrate the cervical discectomy and fusion the Plaintiff would need to undergo as a result.
Illustrating the mechanism of injury.
Medical animation showing anterior cervical discectomy and fusion.
The medical animation amplified Mr. Sorich’s damage claims and maximized his leverage heading into mediation. The Defense was able to clearly see the disc bulges throughout the spine and understand the severity of the injury due to the extensive nature of the surgery that was required. The case resulted in a $2.1M settlement.
