Speeding Big Rig Slams Into Man Outside of Stalled Vehicle
Full 3D Animation Recreated Collision and Resulting Amputation

A 38-year-old man was driving to work one morning when he was in not one, but two collisions. Initially, the man was hit by a motor carrier truck damaging his vehicle and leaving him stuck in the middle of the freeway. Unable to drive his car to the shoulder, the Plaintiff stepped out of his vehicle and tried to push the car out of the way from oncoming traffic. Many witnesses accounted to the fact that surrounding traffic had slowed down in response to the Plaintiff. However, an oncoming semi-truck was not paying attention and slammed into the man, crushing him between the grill of the truck and the rear end of his car. Due to the impact, the Plaintiff had to bear losing his left leg. Attorneys Scot D. Wilson and Conor M. Kelly of Robinson Calcagnie, Inc. reached out to DK Global to visually piece together the important aspects of the case.

As the animation begins, we see the Plaintiff’s vehicle in the location where it was left after the first collision, stuck in the far-right lane of the freeway. Facing oncoming traffic, we can witness firsthand the terror of having the larger trailer truck speeding toward the viewer and ultimately crashing into the vehicle. Multiple perspectives were also used to show the crucial details of the incident. A medical portion circling around a 3D body was then created to depict the severe damages that were sustained including a nearly complete left leg amputation, multiple fractures to the right tibia, vertebral body fractures, and a collapsed lung, to name a few. Finally, the resulting surgeries were animated to reinforce the detrimental impact this incident had on the Plaintiff. The animation helped the attorneys reach a resolution based upon a confidential settlement between the parties.
