The Case for Litigation Graphics
Early in my career at Newsweek I did a graphic about the proper use of a child car seat - how to hook the thing up with the seatbelt and all. I remember showing it to the Director of Information Graphics and he looked it over and remarked, "This graphic will save lives." ...and he meant it. That thought came to me when I worked on my first litigation graphic. Here was a case of an individual who had been severely debilitated by the arrogance and incompetance of a surgeon. I won't go into the details but here was an opportunity for me to use my skills to create courtroom graphics to help, in a small way, mitigate a grave harm to a woman and her family by helping her receive the care she would now require for the rest of her life. This is what I find so compelling about doing this type of work - one graphic focused on telling the story of one individual to help them seek a partial remedy for a bad situation.
