First Party Property Claim? Why Color Matching Photographs is Important
Creating color accurate exhibits for your first party property claim may be crucial to your case. Especially if you are handling a case that addresses exactly when the damage happened color accuracy at the time the photograph was taken is a key element of any photograph exhibit to document your client's property damage. In addition, it is important to have accurate photographs and/or video of the repairs your client may have to do to their property to mitigate damages - like go ahead and repair their roof while they fight the denial of their claim.
Many lawyers only think about the color of the exhibit once they are preparing for trial and creating their exhibits. The reality is that in order to establish a good record for your case, the exhibits introduced in your demand, deposition, etc. should be accurate and hold the opposing party's feet to the fire. If you are going depose the first party adjusters, appraisers,, etc., why not have those exhibits ready to go at the their depositions; video taped depositions. By testifying to the exhibits at deposition you can eliminate issues with authenticity and correct representation.
Of course, not just ANY printer or graphic design artist will do.
Many so-called legal graphics firms and illustrators outsource their printing services. Meaning that they only design, but do not handle the production of the design. There are several reasons why this is not ideal to your case. Moreover, the use of in-house printing side by side with designer is key for quality control (i.e. color of photograph blow-ups, bent corners, etc.) It is a rare that a designer will not take pride in his creation and ensure that the print is exactly like his design or an accurate depiction of a photograph. APVisuals by providing in-house printing services, makes sure that the print is what you see on a computer screen. When dealing with a case addressing scars, the color of a floor that creates an optical illusion, and injuries in general the mere change of a shade of color can impact the outcome of your case.
