The standard categories of personal injury cases have remained consistent for the last 50 years. The idea of a slip and fall, animal bite, or product failure are some of the types of personal injury heard in courts today. However, the scope of the cases has changed due to the advancement of technologies that are part of our everyday lives.
Each personal injury attorney now needs to have an expanded knowledge of technology to set up and present a well-rounded case, and to make sure that the correct party or parties are held responsible.
As an example, automobile accidents are some of the more common personal injury cases heard. Back in the 1960’s, the elements of the case were geared to more human driving error. However, in 2019, the case can include such additional elements as a malfunction of the onboard computer, interruption of the power grid that supports the traffic light system, and in some cases with the advent of self-driving cars, individuals hacking the virtual driving system. A simple fender-bender now has implications that are far reaching and with a significant increase in monetary compensation. Examples like this can be found in many other typical personal injury cases.
Attorneys not only have to stay abreast of the changing technology, they need to find partners and resources with equal if not more experience in understanding these technologies as well. One of these case partners is the medical graphics expert. Since cases in 2019 are no longer reliant solely on victim and expert testimony, the use of graphics in the form of animation, colorized pictures, timelines and charts, as examples, must be cutting edge. The demonstrative evidence needs to resonate with the jury in a way that will help them understand these new technologies so they can reach a verdict.
