When a mother and son both suffered traumatic brain injuries due to a car crash, David Yarborough, Esq. of Yarborough Applegate Law Firm, LLC needed to show the devastating internal damages suffered by his clients in an easy-to-understand manner.
The main Defendant in this case was driving and speeding in the rain when his vehicle hydroplaned, crossed the center line of the road, and collided with the Plaintiff’s vehicle. The Plaintiffs claimed negligence against the Defendant, along with other Defendants that had inspected and/or sold the vehicle with bald tires on the vehicle that hydroplaned.
Although the Defendant admitted liability, they had minimum insurance limits. Other Defendants in this case denied liability, therefore it was important to show the full scope of injuries and suffering of both Plaintiffs.
Son’s scope of injuries.
The challenge that Mr. Yarborough faced was proving liability against all Defendants as well as showing the extent of injuries. High Impact was enlisted to:
Communicate the severity and scope of internal damages suffered.
Show all brain injuries sustained with clear labeling and color highlights on brain scans.
Compile all illustrations into two cohesive storylines for both mother and son.
Mother's scope of injuries.
With the help of the animated illustrations provided by High Impact, Mr. Yarborough was able to settle this case for $6.95M.
“High Impact provided these amazing CSI visuals that I was able to use with the treating neurologist to teach the defense lawyers, adjusters and focus group members the mechanism and impact of a shearing type injury to the brain, followed by cellular death and mental deficits that correspond. We were then able to link each of the damaged areas of the brain to a particular behavioral or functional change within each Plaintiff. The feedback we got from our focus groups was very positive and they did not question the devastating nature of these invisible injuries after watching these videos.”
