When plaintiffs file a civil lawsuit to recover compensation for injuries, the case is generally decided by a jury, if it does not settle. A jury is chosen from among eligible members of the public to serve in a particular trial. The decision made by the jury is going to determine whether a plaintiff is able to recover compensation or not, so it is imperative that the jury be unbiased, impartial, able to understand the law, and able to make a fair decision on the outcome of the case.
Voir dire is the legal process that is used to evaluate potential jurors to determine if they are suitable for jury service in the case being heard. Plaintiffs in civil lawsuits who wish to pursue damage claims after a personal injury accident should ensure they have an experienced Long Beach injury lawyer to ask appropriate questions during voir dire so a jury can be selected that will give the plaintiff the best shot at winning his case.
