Settlement Documentaries

The Sweeney Law Firm was one of the first law firms in the State to harness the persuasive power of video settlement documentaries to maximize our clients’ financial recovery. A video settlement documentary is typically 20 to 30 minutes long is similar to a segment on “60 Minutes” or other TV documentaries. We tell the story of the case through witness interviews, video footage of therapy appointments, doctor interviews, scene photographs, family photos and other visual and documentary evidence..

The purpose of a video settlement documentary is to educate and persuade the insurance carrier for the defendant and their lawyers. Video settlement documentaries educate the opposition about the enormity of the harm injury victims and their families suffer as a result of negligence or malpractice. A well done video settlement documentary can serve as a powerful tool to persuade an insurance carrier to settle a case rather than risk a large verdict in court.  

If you or a family member have suffered a serious injury, and are in the process of choosing a law firm to represent you, be sure to inquire whether the firm has extensive experience in telling the story of a case through video settlement documentaries. A compelling and broadcast-quality video settlement documentary can significantly enhance the amount of compensation you receive through a settlement of your case.
