Confidential Settlement Reached On The Eve Of Trial In Failure To Yield Case

Nicholas Cronauer Uses Animation to Change Perspectives and Depict Injuries

Trial lawyer, Nicholas Cronauer needed a compelling presentation to show a jury that his client’s injuries from a motor vehicle collision were severe and the result of a negligent postal driver. DK Global worked closely with the Cronauer Law firm to create a forensic-reconstruction animation that was sure to tell the facts.

Nicholas Cronauer on Providing New Perspectives

“I retained DK Global in a case that, to me, was clear liability because a truck turned left in front of my client on a county road into a private driveway. I did not hire a crash deconstructionist because the facts seemed crystal clear. Doing focus groups, I learned that jurors would still tend to blame my client even though she was absolutely not at fault and was going the speed limit.

I saw the power of the visual demonstrative because it absolutely turned jurors who were initially against the Plaintiff to literally see she did nothing wrong and I was able to see firsthand the effect it had on changing the narrative. A visual is literally worth a thousand words. After it was disclosed to defense near trial, I am confident it was a major factor in them agreeing to settle 2x the prior offer almost right after trial commenced.”

Courtroom Visuals Create a Compelling Case

The presentation begins with the Defendant driving southbound and the Plaintiff traveling northbound. With the help of the visual, it is clearly illustrated how the Defendant fails to yield the right-of-way as they choose to make a left turn directly into the Plaintiff’s path of travel. The Plaintiff attempted to avoid the large truck, but ultimately gets hit by the vehicle. Following the crash, the camera quickly shifts to show the Plaintiff’s car as it becomes transparent and zooms in to the Plaintiff’s spine to reveal the injuries sustained. These include spinal stenosis, left and right foraminal annular tear, and a leftward bulging disc. On the eve of trial during jury selection, attorney Cronauer was able to successfully obtain a confidential settlement for his client.
