Severe Crush Injuries to the Left Foot and Subsequent Severe Flat Foot Deformity - Medical Illustration, Human Anatomy Drawing
This medical exhibit compares the normal anatomy of the left foot. post-accident condition and the subsequent condition based on the films. The first image features a lateral view of the foot. The bones of the foot are visible beneath the skin and the complex arrangement of ligaments will be included. All the pertinent structures are labeled. The main joints that move during walking are also identified specifically the ankle joint and the transverse tarsal joint (talo- navicular and calcaneo-cuboid joints). We are included an x-ray of the right foot in the lateral view which shows normal anatomy and alignment. The next image depicts the lateral view of the foot as depicted in the post-accident films. It is clear that this individual sustained a comminuted left calcaneal fracture. The marked disruption of the structures involved in walking. This image are based specifically on the film study provided. The final image shows the most current condition revealing a misaligned and deformed foot as shown in the film study provided. It is clear that even though the fractures have healed there is misalignment of the subtalar joint, bony overgrowth of the healed calcaneal fracture, and the joint degeneration resulting from arthritis and severe flat foot deformity.
"For modern audiences, it is absolutely essential to use medical
demonstrative evidence to convey the severity and extent of physical
injuries to a jury. Your company's high quality illustrations of our
client's discectomy surgery, combined with strong expert testimony, allowed
the jury to fully appreciate the significance of our client's injuries.
We are very pleased with a verdict exceeding $297,000.00, far in excess of
the $20,000.00 initially offered by the defendant. The medical demonstrative
evidence provided by Medical Legal Art was an asset we could not have
afforded to have been without."

"Our firm was able to settle our case at an all day mediation yesterday and
I am confident that the detail and overall appearance of the medical
illustrations significantly contributed to the settlement. When we require
medical illustrations in the future, I will be sure to contact [MLA]."

"I wanted to take some time out to let you know what a wonderful job you did
with the 'collapsed lung/fractured rib' illustrations. They were both
detailed and accurate. My medical expert was comfortable working with them
and he spent at least an hour explaining to the jury the anatomy of the
lungs, the ribs and the injuries depicted in the illustrations. Needless to
say, the jury was riveted to the doctor during his testimony.
The jury returned a verdict for $800,000.00 and I'm sure we would not have
done so well if not for the visualizations we were able to put forth with
your assistance. Lastly, my special thanks to Alice [Senior Medical
Illustrator] who stayed late on Friday night and patiently dealt with my
last minute revisions."
