It is unquestionable that demonstrative evidence helps a jury understand what is being said. This is certainly true when representing individuals who have suffered a traumatic brain injury. Where there is an abnormality that can be seen on either MRI, PET Scan, three-dimensional MRI scanning, certainly assist the plaintiff in demonstrating the injury. Anatomical models are also quite helpful. However, anatomical models are usually hard and plastic, preventing a jury from understanding how fragile the brain really is. A colleague of mine recently attempted to have a jury observe a pig’s brain which has a consistency similar to that of a human. Purchase of a human brain is illegal. Unfortunately, the trial judge where the case was being heard refused to permit the use of the pig brain. Not to be stymied, my colleague made a Jell-O mold of a human brain. That mold can be found here.
