Understanding Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI) - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT: Your urinary tract includes the kidneys, ureters, bladder, and urethra. Your kidneys make urine which flows through the ureters to your bladder. Your bladder expands to store urine until you're ready to urinate. Muscles called sphincters contract to hold urine in your bladder. When you urinate, the sphincters relax. This allows urine to pass out of your body through your urethra. Strong pelvic floor muscles support your bladder and other organs so they can work properly. Stress urinary incontinence means urine leaks by accident when movement puts sudden pressure on your bladder. It can happen when you cough, laugh, sneeze, or exercise. Urine can leak if your sphincters or pelvic floor muscles have become weak. Things that can weaken these muscles include childbirth, obesity, aging, pelvic surgery, and some types of medicine. To find out more about stress urinary incontinence, talk to your healthcare provider.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"I wanted to thank you for the terrific job you did illustrating my client's injuries. The case was settled at the pre-suit mediation, and I believe a good part of the success we had was due to the medical legal art you prepared.

Your work received the ultimate compliment at the conclusion of the mediation. The hospital risk manager took the exhibit with them at the conclusion of mediation, and will be using it to train nurses on how to prevent bed sores..."

"Medical illustrations are essential evidence in personal injury litigation and MLA is simply the best I've found at producing high-quality illustrations. Your illustrators are not only first-class artists, but creative and responsive. Your turn around time is as good as it gets. My clients have won over $60 million in jury verdicts and I can't recall a case which did not include one of your exhibits. On behalf of those clients, thanks and keep up the great work!"

"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."

"I thought you might want to know that after we sent a copy of your illustration to the defendants, with a copy to the insurance company, they increased their offer by an additional million dollars and the case was settled for $1,900,000.00.

I appreciate your help!"
