Filming an interview for a Settlement Documentary

Settlement documentaries can be a powerful way for a victim to tell his story. Through professional legal videography you can give critical insight into the day-to-day life of the victim, demonstrating the damages that an incident has caused him. A settlement documentary provides a strong platform for the words of the victim, presenting them in a very compelling way.



  • Opposing counsel and the parties at risk see the facts as you will present them in trial – may cause them to reevaluate their positions(s)
  • Prompts settlement
  • Avoids the emotional trauma of trial
  • Eliminates the risks and costs of trial


You want the adjuster to understand the profound change in your client’s quality of life as a result of the defendant’s actions. A well made settlement documentary is made up of layers of information, much like the layers of an onion.

  • Witness Interviews – Your client’s story is best told by family, friends co-workers and others in their own words
  • Liability – Why the defendant is responsible, using crash photos, police report, depositions, excerpts, eyewitness interviews, etc.
  • Pre-Injury Condition – Family photos and home video are used to establish the contrast in your clients life
  • Day in the Life Video – The plaintiff’s struggles and the help required day-in and day-out
  • Medical Statement – A medical professional explains diagnosis, treatment, prognosis, permanency, and causation using visual aids
