Visualizations of accidents, crime and injuries can be gruesome. Research has shown that gruesome and graphic visualizations evoke strong emotional reactions, result in more severe moral judgments, and increase conviction rates. Visuals are powerful; they can lead to several biases including confirmation bias, intentionality bias and may create false memories.

The principle of equality of arms and the right to a fair trial might be at stake when parties do not have equal opportunities to be able to create, afford and use visuals.
