“Day in the Life Videos”
A fundamental mistake that our competitors make is not meeting with the plaintiff in their home prior to the shoot. This face to face is extremely important for many reasons. Having strangers come into the home and film the most intimate details can be unsettling. Taking the time to answer all of their questions helps put them at ease. In addition, the home needs to be surveyed for lighting requirements, cleanliness, tidiness, proper wardrobe, and any potential production problems. The attention to detail in capturing the plaintiff and their surroundings is crucial for a successful day in the life video.
Another mistake we often see in our competitor’s videos is relying on a single camera setup. The actions and movements of victims and their caregivers are often unpredictable. We have found the use of multiple cameras results in a superior work product.
Unlike our competition, TortVideo does not rely on a voice-over narrator to tell the opposing side how they should react and think. Our philosophy is to use actual case participants relating their personal or professional account of the events. Typical elements of our productions include; pre-morbid and post-accident photos/videos, medical interviews, surgeries, graphics, plaintiff and lay witness interviews, as well as day in the life scenes. These elements are then meticulously weaved together to make a powerful and emotional video. This narrative serves as a condensed version of what a jury will see and hear if the case fails to resolve before trial.
“How We Work, How We Bill”
Typically, TortVideo collects a small retainer when a new production begins. Our experience and expertise allows us to work independently, this leaves the trial attorney freedom to litigate the case while we put together a turnkey product. We understand that every case can be time consuming and expensive. Whether the case resolves in 30 days, or 30 months, you don’t pay until the case is over!
