Financially viable defendant
If you have an open-and-shut case against a person or entity that is unavailable (for example if they are deceased, in a country with no U.S. extradition agreements, in hiding, or unknown) or against a person or entity that is incapable of paying (such as a company that has folded in an insoluble state or a person on welfare with no insurance) then there is not much use in filing a lawsuit against them.
Why you need an experienced lawyer
Imagine going to the trouble and time investment of filing a lawsuit, only to find out that your case was not solid enough to win. This can happen with an inexperienced lawyer who lacks the knowledge or wisdom to counsel you against suing.
Imagine filing a lawsuit that goes all the way to court, only to find out that the judge considers your case to be a frivolous lawsuit, not only tossing your case out but even fining you heavily for wasting the court’s time.
This can happen with an inexperienced lawyer whose greed or ignorance causes him to take the case when it may be judged to be a frivolous suit. For these and countless other reasons, check the reputation of any injury attorney before letting them be your counsel.
