SUMMARY: When your expert’s message is seen and heard, it then becomes easier to understand. When we understand, we are more more likely to agree. By combining your expert’s opinion with supporting visual content, you can now engage, inform, and compel your audience act in your favor. A comprehensive, seamless video presentation multiplies the weight of your expert’s opinion and maximizes your preexisting expert investment. Now you’re not just telling, you’re SHOWING. You not just printing - you PRESENTING! Don’t waste your most powerful voice in the case to paper. Dominate the battle of the experts with an Expert Witness Report Presentation.

The original family interviews were created 2 years before trial at the family’s home. For those recordings, special camera technology was used to help guide the speakers’ eyes directly into the camera in a natural way.  We built a Case Summary Video (125 minutes) used for internal review and trial prep by interposing the mother’s complete story with the following content: highlights from +20 video depositions; family impact statements; site inspection; home videos; family photos; mobile phone photos, videos, and screenshots; news footage; magazine articles; interviews; online videos; social media presence; workplace photos; awards and recognitions; community involvement; key document displays with callouts and highlights; medical records; CV’s; expert reports; graphs; animated timelines;  hospital policies; government regulations; nursing notes; laboratory notes; phone records; music accompaniment; custom editing; and more.

The Case Summary Video was then used to create the Settlement Presentation (54 minutes) that resulted in the successful settlement of half the defendants.  The Settlement Presentation was then refined into this Trial Presentation (18 minutes) seen here.

At trial, Saxton & Stump (for defendants) objected to the entire presentation on the basis of hearsay.  That objection was overruled by The Honorable Andrew H. Dowling. The presentation was then viewed (with the jury excused) to allow objections to specific parts of the presentation.  Of the many, only five objections were sustained which resulted in the loss of approx. 1.5 minutes of content. The changes were made that afternoon, and the revised trial version (Exhibit 43) was played the next day for the jury.  They returned to find in favor of plaintiff, and awarded $16.2M for medical malpractice.
