Animated Truck Over HD Video – Nighttime Visibility

In this project, we needed to safely show how a tractor-trailer pulling onto a darkened roadway at night would appear to an approaching big rig. Of course, we can’t crash two semis to recreate the accident. To accomplish our goals safely, we took night-time, HD, 5K video of the road, driving at speed through the accident location. We incorporated state-of-the-art photometers to capture the visibility as would be seen by the human eye, as accurately as possible. We then laser scanned the truck and created a forensically accurate animation. Furthermore, we needed to know what the animated truck looked like in the scene’s lighting conditions…. The animation was layered over the HD video, resulting in the project you see here.

Forensically Accurate Slip and Fall Presentation

This animation illustrates “how and why” the plaintiff missed a step and fell. It shows the environment of the stairs, the code violations at the scene, the way that these may have influenced her fall, and the injuries suffered as a direct consequence of the fall. See how case facts can be dynamically presented, in full motion, by a forensic animation built from 3D laser scanning, computer modeling, medical/injury illustrations and visualizing the expert teams’ opinion.

HD Forensic Video

This was an 80 mph accident, where a truck pulled out in front of a car on Highway 101, in a 55 mph zone. We first mounted a camera inside an exemplary car, and then drove the scene at speed. Next, we laser scanned the scene, car, and truck. The scans were used to create an animation over video. Having digital video and vehicle scans allow us to recreate “what if” scenarios at different speeds that are forensically accurate. Lastly, you’ll see the event at 65 and 80 mph with overlays for distance and time to impact. What if the driver was going 65 instead of 80? Yes, the truck pulled out in front of the car, but did the car’s excessive speed contribute to this fatal accident? The ability to visually show “what if” scenarios can be crucial in early mediations and settlements.

“3D-Forensic brings their knowledge of science and accident recreation together with a practical understanding of how jurors think to create powerful images that help make the case simple to understand. Ultimately, that’s the secret sauce for success at trial.”
Craig Peters, Trial Team Leader, The Veen Firm, PC
“When I hire an expert the two most important factors I consider are creativity and responsiveness. Jason Fries is at the top of my list on both counts.
His ability to identify the strengths and weaknesses in my client’s position and deliver high-quality video/animations are the reasons I hire him.
The chief litigation counsel of one of my clients was so impressed with Jason’s work that he asked for a copy to show all of the lawyers in his company’s litigation department.”
Jack McCowan, Partner, Gordon & Rees Skully Mansukhani
“Jason has created visual aids for several of my cases. He uses the latest technology and pays close attention to detail. In one case, opposing counsel took his deposition in an effort to poke holes in his work. Jason testified well. He defended his work and established the foundation necessary for us to use the demonstratives in our case.”
Andrew McDevitt, Associate, Walkup, Melodia, Kelly, Schoenberger
“Jason brought a fresh and invaluable perspective to the case with his insight and experience about what works and what doesn’t. He was the consummate professional, always responsive, and willing to go with the litigation flow in terms of being ready when needed. There is no doubt that I would retain him again.”
Amy Maclear, Senior Counsel, Gordon & Rees Skully Mansukhani
