Minneapolis, MN asked in Products Liability for Minnesota

Q: I found a hair in my banquet spaghetti and meatballs microwave meal made by ConAgra foods. Can I sue them?

I am 52-year-old male with COPD who has spent thousands of dollars to self quarantine during this time of COVID-19. Now I feel violated after finding a hair from who knows what person that has who knows what. It was in my mouth. And I did save it, and also took pictures

A: A Minnesota attorney could advise best, but you await a response for a week. I'm sorry for your ordeal, but I believe your case could be a difficult one. Without tangible damages of permanence or a significant duration that are clear-cut to a jury, law firms could be reluctant to contemplate such a case on a contingency basis. While you describe the distress you suffered, the cost of prosecuting a case for injuries based on such distress could be difficult. Additionally, your case could involve analytical lab fees that some firms could have concerns about. This is only my perspective. The most reliable means of determining whether or not you have a viable case would be to contact Minnesota attorneys to discuss further. Save your evidence and reach out to firms and find out what they think. Good luck
