HOW MANY JURORS WILL BE IN THE JURY?
April 11, 2014
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.
