The Importance of Properly Presented Medical Evidence | Shapiro, Washburn & Sharp

Learn How Medical Evidence Can Make a Major Difference in Your Case

If you or a family member suffered a serious injury from a car accident, truck, wreck, or other accident and need the services of a personal injury lawyer, you want an experienced lawyer who fully appreciates the power of properly presented medical evidence. This is more of an art than a science and is developed through handling major, serious cases at trials.

The goal is to take complex material that may seem overwhelming to many people and break it down into relatable information for a mediator, judge, and jury to understand.

Why is this so important? Because presenting medical evidence properly can lead to a favorable, more significant settlement or verdict in your injury case. An insurance adjuster may realize they don’t want this evidence presented to a jury and may then decide to offer a sizable settlement. Or, if your case goes to trial, the evidence becomes easier to grasp for jurors and this can also lead to a favorable outcome.

Our firm understands that there are a tremendous number of ways to express and simplify medical evidence and has presented persuasive medical evidence during mediations and jury trials for decades. Our major settlements and verdicts speak volumes (click on our case results section to review these).

The types of medical evidence we commonly use include:

  • Charts
  • Graphs
  • Illustrations (Example: anatomy)
  • “Day in the life” Videos
  • Work Restriction Evaluation Forms
  • X-Rays and MRIs
  • Video Depositions of Doctors
