Project Description

Exhibit panel created for use in a plaintiff personal-injury insurance claim associated with the client being in two motor vehicle accidents (MVA) a few months apart. Mr. Lee had mild back pain after the first MVA and was discovered to have a disc extrusion. After his second MVA, his pain symptoms worsened and his extrusion was found on imaging to be larger. Our visual challenge entailed comparing the size of the disc pathology between the two MVAs and the associated resultant symptoms, without literally stating a causal link ‘“ to avoid any risk of the exhibit being excluded at trial. This panel served as key demonstrative evidence to show the exacerbated disc pathology that necessitated fusion surgery (depicted on another exhibit).
