Medical illustrations are key to personal injury cases. Some attorneys may try to use standard medical illustrations from books, but these medical illustrations will likely impact the jurors as much as they impact you while sitting in the waiting room of your physician's office. Custom medical illustrations can take jurors behind the scene to not only understand what "healthy" is, but to also understand the actual damages and the invasive procedure that your client underwent. The medical illustrator has to be able to accurately represent the human body, injuries and procedure in a a way that jurors will be able to understand and your medical expert will agree with.
When you hire APVisuals to create a medical illustration for your case, you can expect that the medical illustrator will not only work closely with you and your support staff, but the medical illustrator will also be in contact with your expert to ensure that everyone is on the same page. APVisuals usually asks the attorney to provide certain medical records (operative report, MRIs, CT scans, x-rays, etc.), a background of the case and injury, and what is to be highlighted. Of course, our illustrator will also give ideas and feedback based on our years of experience. After reviewing all these documents, the illustrator will create a draft (as finalized pursuant to the illustrator's opinion) and submit it to your expert's review for corrections and/or approval. This process may take a few tries based on the conversations between the attorney, illustrator and expert.
