MULTIPLE PLAINTIFFS & MASS TORT CLAIMS
A settlement documentary film can be made that focuses on a small number of representative claimants (typically three clients is ideal) from your client inventory. In focusing on just a few individuals, we can tell the broader story of all of your similarly injured clients. We will demonstrate the impacts of the injuries on the clients’ daily lives as well as outlining the key liability case developed through deposition testimony and documents produced in discovery.
Ideal cases for the multiple plaintiff format include those involving: mass tort pharmaceutical, medical device or consumer products; victims of mass shootings; survivors of sexual assault or abuse involving the same perpetrator or institution; environmental pollution, water contamination or wildfire caused by utility companies.
INDIVIDUAL CATASTROPHIC INJURY CASE
The catastrophic injury claim stemming from a single event or accident is the type of case most commonly associated with the use of video settlement demands. A documentary film can tell a compelling story focusing on your clients’ injuries and the impacts on their loved ones. We will dive in to the obvious and unexpected toll these injuries take. Weaving the damages and liability presentations into one succinct narrative will demonstrate what happened, what went wrong, and the devastating impact that it had and continues to have.
Ideal cases for this format include: workplace accidents; premises liability; transportation crash cases involving commercial trucks, buses, railroads, or airlines; individual product liability or automobile crashes; sexual assault; those involving traumatic brain, spinal cord, or birth injuries; and wrongful death or survival claims.
PRE-FILING SETTLEMENT DEMAND
For the cases where you intend to send a demand before filing a complaint, a short video presentation can be prepared utilizing the limited information you already have on hand and a filmed interview with your client. This can be a powerful tool to resolve the claim quickly and avoid litigation altogether.
Ideal cases for this presentation include: sexual assault or harassment claims, personal injury cases where liability/causation is clear, or claims of a sensitive nature where the defendant may have a strong interest in resolution without the nature of the conflict becoming public.
SMALLER DAMAGE CASES
There is a way to utilize a smaller-scale version of the settlement documentary to maximize recovery in cases with firm liability caps or limited insurance coverage. In these presentations we can rely on the client’s own photographs and home videos, medical records, depositions and documents developed in discovery to visually tell the story of the case without the added costs of conducting our own interviews or filming on-site with the clients.
