HOW MANY JURORS WILL BE IN THE JURY?

In Ohio, your personal injury claim is considered a “civil case” as opposed to a “criminal case” and it will be tried before 8 jurors.

The party suing for compensation is called the “plaintiff” and the party being sued is call the “defendant”.  In a civil case, the jurors must decide if and/or how to compensate the plaintiff for any damages. 

In a civil case, six (6) jurors (or three-fourths of the eight jurors) must agree on a verdict.
