Technological advancements have led to the use of a variety of digital techniques and applications in the presentation of evidence to the courts. Computer animations, videos, photographs, and PowerPoint presentations – these visual forms have become a common feature in courtrooms over the past few decades, and this is for good reason.
It has been found that the use of digital techniques such as photos and images help to facilitate memory and comprehension, especially when a narrative is difficult to understand.
Visuals assist jurors, giving them access to evidence they would not otherwise have seen, and this is well worthwhile as it helps with understanding difficult concepts. Visuals help jurors imagine the events in a case, and remember certain important details they may otherwise dismiss before a verdict is reached.
However, 2D images may not tell the whole story in certain cases. Unlike having to use videos and photographs, 3D models can be physically manipulated by jurors. Though turning a computer animation or presentation to 3D is possible, the screen still limits the recreations.
For instance, during a personal injury case, the juror may find out that the railings on a walkway weren’t high enough, yet the client involved easily fell over them. While 2D imagery can be used to determine the conditions surrounding the accident scene, 3D models take it a notch higher.
3D models help jurors get a feel of the exact measurements of the specific environment and appreciate other details in a way that is more coherent than photographs. In the case of the walkway, the jurors get to see how close together the people involved are, and the likelihood of falling over the railing.
Using 3D Models for Damaged Vehicles
The average car crash case that ends up in a claims court typically involves damage to the vehicle of one or both parties, and not personal injury.
In most cases, both drivers go to extreme lengths to prove that the other party was at fault. And truth is, proving the negligence or carelessness of the other person is key to absolving yourself of any responsibility, and even getting compensation for damages. This is where 3D models can help.
As 3D models are able to recreate an accident scene so jurors can see the happenings from multiple angles, getting to the root of a damaged vehicle case in court has never been easier. 3D models help to show the extent of the damage of the vehicle involved, as well as how the damage occurred.
Visual evidence is an integral part of today’s court deliberations. 3D models for damaged vehicles – and indeed any other court case – makes this visuals more compelling, and deliberations easier to handle.
The detailing is explicit in all ramifications, helping jurors determine fault even more accurately, with all of the details available in the courtroom.
