Jury Selection in Medical Malpractice Cases

In Ohio, every plaintiff is entitled to a trial by jury should they decide to exercise that right. Civil juries are generally composed of 8 individuals who reside in the community where the case is filed. In order for a plaintiff to win a case, at least 6 of those 8 jurors (or three-fourths majority) must vote in the plaintiff's favor. Because of this, the process of selecting a jury, or voir dire, is very important.
