Product liability animations provide the client unparalleled ease in explaining highly complex mechanical and physical issues. From the multiple layers of an automobile tire to the crystallized glue of a failed window pane to the workings of a circuit board, product animations visualize what the eye cannot see.
Medical simulations are used to show physical processes that are microscopic or too complex to be easily described. Their range is limitless, from exact reconstructions of injuries, to the body’s absorption of molecules into the bloodstream, to the buildup of plaque in the arteries.
The operator of a manlift crane was killed when he accidentally raised the rig under an overhang, choking himself when his neck was pinned by a crossbar. The crane was constructed with a foot shroud protecting a floor-mounted pedal against accidental actuation. The operator was unable to remove his foot from the shroud and reverse the crane’s movement due to previous damage to the shroud that went unrepaired. The defense in the case rested on a very specific set of occurrences that were shown to be untrue by a precise animated simulation of the incident.
A home buyer brought suit against the building’s previous owners citing undisclosed defects revealed when a leaking roof caused massive damage during a heavy rainstorm. Legal Depiction built a 3D model of the house from blueprints and animated a sequence through it that provided locations for still photographs of the damaged sections that were integrated into the animation as pop-ups.
