What is a Forensic Animation?

A Forensic Animation is a demonstrative aide used to aid and assist a lay witness or an expert’s testimony.  It’s a simple way to present complex and difficult information that may otherwise be confusing or overly burdensome to explain.

When should a Forensic Animation be created and used?

A Forensic Animation should be considered for all phases of litigation including evaluation, arbitration, focus groups, mediation, and trial. It can help both the attorney and expert determine the merit of their case, define key issues, and even reveal details or challenges previously overlooked now that you can see what is happening based on the evidence.

How can a Forensic Animation increase the value of your Case?

Animations have been proven to increase the opportunity for early settlement and for a higher value by making it clear the attorney is preparing and investing in their case. It fully communicates to the defendant that you are ready and willing to pursue the case further. Animations also engage your intended audience by grabbing the viewer’s more immediate attention than conventional static exhibits or mere words.

How would a Forensic Animation get admitted as evidence?

Most attorneys get animations into trial as demonstrative evidence used to aid and assist witness testimony. Demonstrative evidence inherently carries no independent probative value and is used for five general purposes:
1. Educate your audience

2. Explain something

3. Persuade your audience of something

4. Dissuade your audience of something

5. Reinforce something your audience already believes

More technical computer-generated evidence that involves advanced calculations or evidentiary conclusions have higher standards. We can work with experts and do those as well; however, 99%+ of the Forensic Animations are demonstrative in nature, even when they are used by expert witnesses.
