Computer Animation

At Cheong, Denove, Rowell, Bennett & Karns we believe that the more the jury sees, the better they will understand. If one picture is worth a thousand words, a computer animation can tell the entire story. Computer animations can allow the jury to see the accident through the eyes of the plaintiff, the defendant or a third person. This is an example of computer animation which was played for a jury. Attorneys at Cheong, Denove, Rowell & Bennett have successfully represented clients for over thirty years in products liability, medical malpractice, insurance bad faith, train accidents, catastrophic injury and wrongful death actions.
