Why would you consider a Video Deposition?

Perhaps scheduling difficulties exist with a witness who might not be available for a trial, often times medical professionals are not available to be on stand-by for a trial; therefore, their testimony can be video-recorded and preserved to present at trial.

The way someone answers a question can be just as important as the answer itself. Is the witness hostile? Is the witness sincere?

Instead of reading a transcript to a jury, a video can capture every inflection, body language, emotion and hesitancy of the witness not conveyed by a written transcript. This is why video depositions can be crucial to winning a case, because without it, there would be no facial expressions or body language to observe.

Take it a step further with Video Synchronization.

We offer video recording and transcript synchronization utilizing Ipro Tech© software to synchronize the video with an ASCII copy of the transcript.

We can provide you with a copy of the video recording in any format on a flash drive, disk or we can provide you with a Depoview ©DVD, which allows you to search and save pertinent segments of testimony for you to use at trial.

Please watch an example of how a Depoview © DVD can be of benefit to you. VIEW VIDEO

Attempting to settle a case?

Day-in-the-Life Video convince the opposition they cannot win the case in a court of law by introducing a Day-in-the-Life Video. This is a 10 to 15 minute video chronicling the day to day life of an injured plaintiff. Primarily, this video documents the plaintiffs' daily activities to capture the quality of life and how it has been altered by injury, illness and/or pain. The video can vividly demonstrate the plaintiffs' limitations, frustrations and dependencies during activities such as rising from bed, eating, bathing, transportation, work and therapy. The Day-in-the-Life Video will bring jurors up close and personal into the plaintiff's daily living environment in a way virtually impossible to communicate through a written transcript.

Site Inspection Video of construction disputes or insurance inspections are an important part of many cases and documenting the scene as accurately as possible can be a vital tool to verify the facts.

Accident Site Video is an exceptional way to clearly present what transpired in an accident. The accident site video could include video of where the accident occurred, vehicles or equipment that was involved in the accident.
