Coup-Contrecoup Whiplash Injury - Medical Animation
This 3D medical animation depicts a closed head coup and contrecoup (whiplash) injury resulting in traumatic brain injury (TBI). An external force causes causes the head to move rapidly forward. The brain, within the cranial cavity, suffers a contrecoup injury by striking the inside of the back of the skull, opposite side of the impacting force. Secondarily, the coup (or 'blow') part of the injury, occurs when the brain strikes the interior of front of the skull.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"Medical Legal Art has always performed quality and efficient work. The doctors that review the exhibits are always amazed at the precise descriptions and drawings."

"There is nothing like a great graphic depicting the real nature and extent of a victim's injuries to get full value for your client. I use Medical Legal Art for mediations as well as trial."

Geoff Wells

"It is my experience that it's much more effective to show a jury what happened than simply to tell a jury what happened. In this day and age where people are used to getting information visually, through television and other visual media, I would be at a disadvantage using only words.

I teach a Litigation Process class at the University of Baltimore Law Schooland use [Medical Legal Art's] animation in my class. Students always saythat they never really understood what happened to [to my client] until theysaw the animation.

Animations are powerful communication tools that should be used wheneverpossible to persuade juries."

"[Your staff] was extremely efficient, cooperative and gracious and [their] efforts produced a demonstrative exhibit that we used effectively throughout our trial. The jury verdict of $3,165,000.00 was, in no small measure, due to the impact of the demonstrative evidence. You may be sure that we will call again."
