Kansas City Accident Injury Attorneys

I have heard of the use of a mock jury or focus group. What are they and how are they used?

Sometimes lawyers can hire people to act as a “mock jury” to see how a case may be viewed in court. This gives a chance to see the opinions of others and to predict how a case may go. The people are usually found with an advertisement offering a small monetary payment for the effort. This group of people listens to the case facts, gives personal opinions, and sometimes also create a verdict. This type of group is sometimes used for an entire case from start to finish, or it is used for just a portion of a case evaluation.

Kansas City personal injury attorneys can use mock juries with cases such as slip and fall accidents. The attorney may show pictures of the person’s condition to help the jury decide whether the property owner should be held responsible. Focus groups and mock juries are extremely helpful because they let the lawyer see how a case may be looked at in court before the case goes to trial.
