WHAT IS THE VALUE OF MY BALTIMORE INJURY CASE? Who actually serves on a jury?
The knowledgeable Baltimore personal injury lawyer will advise you that all adult Maryland citizens, who are also US citizens, have the opportunity and duty to serve. Certain individuals are excluded as a matter of law: those that cannot comprehend English; those who have served a sentence of 6 months or more incarceration [unless pardoned], who have a current charge pending and face a sentence of 6 months or more incarceration, among other reasons. Depending on the specific case, prospective jurors may also be excluded for other reasons. Baltimore personal injury lawyers know that the 'source pools' for prospective jurors are MVA records showing those with a driver's license of MVA ID, and the statewide voter registration list.
