An Introduction to Medical Illustrations

At Sutton Law Group, we are passionate about representing our medical malpractice and personal injury clients with unrivaled creativity and thoroughness. For this reason, we put a lot of thought into the best way to present our clients’ injuries, especially when cases require that we go to court. One of the most effective ways we’ve found to help insurance adjusters, judges, and jurors understand the extent of our clients’ injuries is with medical illustrations.

The medical illustrations used by our firm are commissioned from professional medical illustrators with extensive knowledge and education in both life sciences and visual communication. The artists review our clients’ x-rays as well as relevant information about any surgery he or she has undergone to repair it. They may consult with other scientific experts, or even observe similar surgeries or laboratory procedures. They then create detailed renderings of our client’s initial injury, as well as images that diagram the way in which it was surgically repaired.

While medical illustrations do not show gore, they are extremely effective. They make it easier for people who are not medical professionals to understand the severity of what occurred. What’s more, these images are not generic. Each is completely unique, with bones, ligaments, tears, and fractures drawn precisely to scale to match the body of the injured person.

Medical illustrations can also be created to show how an injury’s healing, or lack thereof, is expected to progress. This gives insurance adjusters, judges, and jurors a clearer idea of the limited movement, pain, and even side effects that a patient is likely to face in the future.





As they say, a picture’s worth a thousand words. When paired with formidable representation, we believe that medical illustrations can be a game changer in personal injury and medical malpractice cases.
