$10M Settlement Illustrating Massive Internal Injuries
Internal injuries can be difficult to fully comprehend until see for yourself what an entire body of catastrophic injuries actually looks like. Faced with a case where liability had already been established on the defendant, Attorney Mike Arias, Esq., understood the importance of coming to mediation prepared with as much visual leverage as possible, while making the damages of his client front and center.
This case involved such a massive degree of devastating internal injuries, we illustrated them all into an injury summary that magnified specific damage points alongside a full-body depiction of the plaintiff. We focused attention on rib, sternum, and pelvic fractures, along with external wounds around the vaginal and hip areas. We also illustrated a separate, magnified depiction of the plaintiff's most painful pelvic fractures.
The illustrations helped break down the painful injuries one by one, showing defense attorneys that the totality of damage was clear and massive. The visual leverage also proved Mr. Arias was confident in his case, and prepared to these visuals in front of a jury to see and decide. So they settled for $10M.
High Impact gave me just what I needed to convince them that this case had such a huge damage potential that it was resolved short of any significant litigation.
