What are some of the factors for getting a fair jury in your personal injury case ?
The law effecting how a jury is chosen in the jurisdiction where a particular case will be tried can vary from one county to another, and from one judge to another, even in the same county.

Here are some of the factors which go into picking a jury.

  1. Do the lawyers conduct the void dire (the questioning of the jury panel that ultimately is whittled down to the jury) or does the judge?
  2. What are the judge’s proclivities during the selection process?
  3. Are there unique factors of your case concerning liability and damages?
  4. How are questions permitted to be asked by the attorneys, and are there follow up questions that are permitted that the trial judge will allow?
  5. Whether supplemental jury questionnaires are permitted over and above what the county requires jurors to complete?
  6. How engaging are the lawyers are during the questioning process?
  7. What are the types of questions the trial judge permits during the process?
