In many civil cases, our experts are retained to review opposing expert reports and determine the accuracy of their opinions. Since audio, video, and image evidence is being used frequently in pre-litigation and litigation, the opinions offered about that evidence can make or break a case.
VIDEO EVIDENCE ISN'T ALWAYS ACCURATE
With the proliferation of digital video evidence from surveillance systems, body-worn cameras, police dash cameras, and videos captured by mobile devices (iPhone) videos have become of high probative value in court. However, videos can be easily manipulated which can be a direct cause of mishandling or misrepresentation of the recording at the time of acquisition. In other words, video recordings contain fragile information. The video evidence when entered with incorrect information due to mishandling can cause the court to make determinations improperly. These issues can leave a video suspect of manipulation.
