How many people are on a Virginia personal injury case jury?

Personal injury cases fall under civil action, which have different rules for jury panels. Usually, 7 people are chosen from a group of 13, unless a special jury has been allowed, in which case 12 are selected from 20 people.

It is possible that more jurors can be called when a trial is likely to be protracted, as deemed by the discretion of the court. If the court believes that more jurors needs to be called, these jurors will be selected in the same way that the initial jurors were and be required to have the same qualifications.
