A Day-In-The-Life video is a court admissible collection of video clips, usually admitted into evidence during the testimony of a spouse or caregiver. It is intended to illustrate the struggles of the plaintiff in everyday life. The presentation typically does not include any pre-recorded commentary. It is narrated live from the witness stand. Because the material is shot with the intent of being shown to a jury, the unedited camera tapes are generally discoverable and must be shot with great care.
This sample video presents what day-in-the-life video looks like when incorporated into a settlement documentary, with explanations from lay medical witnesses.
