Illustrated Spine Injury Raises $250K Offer to $700K Verdict
After a driver smashed into the back of a woman’s car, resulting in a cervical disc replacement, Attorneys Sevy Fisher and Conal Doyle needed help illustrating to a jury why the victim deserved full compensation for her injuries.
“[The insurance company] held tough, never offering more than $250,000, even when the judge told them it was worth more,” Fisher said on Facebook. “They called her a liar, a fraud, and a cheat.”
What High Impact delivered, “Shocked even her to see these images, feel comfortable that she was definitely not suing frivolously, and understand she had every right to attain the monetary means necessary to help with her recovery,” he explained.
Fisher used the exhibits below to show the full extent of damages, and compel jurors to raise the insurance company’s $250,000 offer to a $700,000 verdict.
Exhibit A: Color Diagnostics
In the first exhibit, our artists colorized the victim’s radiographic films to emphasize the graphic extent of the disc protrusions, along with the disc replacement she will have to live with for the rest of her life.
Exhibit B: Medical Illustration
This second exhibit illustrated the cervical discectomy and disc replacement, helping to simplify and explain the step-by-step surgical procedure to the jury, and help them understand the reality of the victim’s suffering.
