The Day in the Life Documentary is an essential component of the personal injury lawsuit. There is no better way to illustrate damages than a well-produced video. The devastation brought upon a family when a catastrophic injury occurs should be captured soon after the incident.
When years pass, the life-changing event becomes almost commonplace to the family. A daily routine of acceptance sets in. A video should be recorded as soon as possible to document the painful process that both the plaintiff and the family go through as they learn to adjust to a new way of life. What is suppressed or forgotten comes through loud and clear when shown on video years later to the jury.
Some clients make a significant recovery and defense attorneys focus on the plaintiff’s life now. Preserving the recovery period, physical therapy and loss of daily activities gives the jury a full picture of your client’s pain and suffering during their recovery.
Still not convinced? Imagine the power of video of an above-the-knee amputee who struggles to stand for the first time on prosthetic legs, each step filled with fear and trepidation. Contrast that image with a well-adjusted plaintiff, one year later, who walks into the courtroom without a detectable limp. The verbal description from the witness stand about the 12 months of rehabilitation pales in comparison to the powerful impact of the video.
