Former TV news journalist, Gera-Lind Kolarik, founded Evidence Video in 1988 when she recognized a growing need from attorneys to capture and detail the daily routine of their clients who suffered atrocious injuries.
Evidence Video runs the gamut of videotaping various disabilities and how they impact a plaintiff’s life. Throughout the years, the company has developed an exclusive expertise in brain injury cases and closed head injury cases. Kolarik and her staff, which consists of several of the best television and print journalists in the media sphere, contrive all filming and production and create around 200 videos a year.
Since its launch, Evidence Video has produced over 5,000 videos in the area of personal injury and workers compensation. The company also offers bilingual services for many plaintiffs of different ethnicities including Hispanic, Arab, Greek and Polish. If requested, an interpreter can be arranged to be on location to help taping run more smoothly.
Evidence Video merits a high standard of production: there has never been a video banned by any judge in court or ruled that it could not be introduced into evidence.
