We are ready and able to use all necessary resources to ensure that our clients receive the compensation they deserve from those responsible for life-altering personal injuriesReach out to Colson Hicks Eidson today to learn more.

Video Transcription:

Perhaps more importantly than the individual witnesses, we’ll often go out with a traumatic brain injury patient and do what we call a “day in the life” video. Where an attorney will go out, and they’ll work with a video company and we’ll spend a tremendous amount of time in the home and in the life of that person and videotape it, because a jury can’t go out into the community and live with our clients.

What we do is we try to bring the life of our clients into a jury. In a short video that is a documentary of their day-to-day life, that shows the different challenges that client may have, that shows the different opportunities that client may have and how the client deals with their injury and compensates for it on a day-to-day basis.

Sometimes a day in the life video is the best piece of evidence to prove up those cases. Like the experts and the other pieces of evidence, they’re very expensive to put together, but we’re very happy to spend any resource necessary to make sure that our clients are fully compensated for their injuries.
