Courtroom Innovations & Technology
Sometimes the difference between winning and losing at trial can come down to whether or not the jury understands your case. The attorneys of Lyons & Simmons, LLP know this is especially true when dealing with complex, complicated medical, mechanical, or scientific evidence in the courtroom and that effectively conveying these facts sometimes requires creative messaging. A medical record alone may not create an understanding that the child who may appear and sound “normal” actually suffers from a serious, debilitating brain injury. Our lawyers have a proven track record of going the extra mile to develop trial presentations that utilize innovative and creative technology to best illustrate the cause and extent of the injury in order to get the best possible results for our clients.

Trial animations can be incredibly impactful if used properly. Sometimes a concept or complex scenario is described, but only a picture can shed light on what really happened. Having the ability to show and explain a client’s position using trial animations is a compelling way to get the point across. Understanding the proper way to create and utilize these tools is just as important as putting together the evidence that supports them. Often times, a creative animation can be the difference in having a successful outcome at trial.
Presenting information that a jury can see and understand is so critical to a good outcome at trial. Whether it's understanding the gravity of a particular injury or ascertaining how an accident sequence occurred, proper illustrations that call the jury, judge or arbitrator's attention to what's important in a way that is impactful is a critical component to our trial teams. Here are some examples of our trial illustrations.
One of the biggest hurdles brain injury victims have in personal injury and products liability cases is quantifying the degree of injury to the jury. If a jury can’t feel or discern the extent of a person’s injuries, they are less inclined to award damages. We have effectively utilized cutting-edge advanced imaging techniques such as diffuse tensor imaging, or DTI, in cases involving brain injuries. With this technology, a jury can confirm for themselves that the individual has suffered injuries throughout the brain, such as in the case of the example provided. When paired with a history of trauma and an absence of further explanation, this evidence has become the gold standard for confirming brain injuries.
