Is Technology Improving the Legal Processes Behind Personal Injury Cases?

The global information technology market remains a huge and highly influential industry, and one that grew from $8,384.32 billion in 2021 to $9,358.51 billion this year.

This represented a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 11.6%, while it also offers an insight into how innovation has continued to impact on multiple industries and sectors across the globe.

But how is technological advancement improving the legal processes behind personal injury cases? Let’s find out!

Streamlining Claims Settlements

The personal injury claims process can be complex and time-consuming, particularly without the help or guidance of a qualified legal expert.

However, the continued use of artificial intelligence (AI) in software and its ability to organise large amounts of even unstructured datasets and provide real-time evaluation.

In the case of claims settlements, this can help with the efficient collation and organisation of data pertaining to individual claims (including individual pieces of evidence and documentation), while providing live evaluation and automatically sending information to the associated parties.

What About the Internet of Things (IoT)?

The Internet of Things (IoT) describes the use of technology, cameras and sensors to create a seamless connection between the corporeal and virtual realms, which unlocks multiple opportunities across a broad range of industries.

In the case of personal injury claims, this typically involves using the evidence collated from CCTV footage, dashcams and even smartwatches, while the data gathered by smartphones can also help to demonstrate who was at fault during an incident.

For example, live dashcam footage may capture a road collision in real-time and demonstrate unequivocally who was at fault and whether or not the accident was your fault.

This is crucial if you’re to ultimately make a successful claim, and one that can withstand the scrutiny of a courtroom or opposition legal team.

The Use of 3D Animation as Visual Aids

On a final note, we should also recognise the role that increasingly authentic 3D animation has played in creating realistic visual aids for claims processes.

Certainly, 3D animation software can now be used to recreate events as they happened, providing jurors and legal officials with a clear picture of what unfolded and who may have been at fault.

This certainly helps in court, while the use of effective 3D recreations may also be used during out-of-court negotiations in the pursuit of an amicable and ultimately fitting compensation payout.

Such technology can be highly impactful on the claims process, especially in terms of shortening legal wrangles and increasing your chances of achieving a desirable result
