You need to figure the cost of repairing the damage vs cost of hiring an attorney. I don't know of any that would take that on a contingent fee.

However if it's provable and you have collision coverage or general property damage coverage, why not file a claim with your insurance and let them go after the mechanic?

You would look for a consumer attorney.

Have they actually filed suit (in which case, you are being sued), or did they merely send a threatening letter? I doubt you are in actual legal jeopardy of losing the word, “Heroes”, from you company name or losing a damage suit in court. My guess is that they are trying to scare you into giving up the word.

Assuming that you broke your tooth on a piece of bone or something else that should not have been in the Turkey Jerky, you have a claim. Not to minimize what happened, but the problem you may have in finding a lawyer is what appears to be the limited nature of your injury. You should contact a personal injury lawyer in your area to discuss this further.

Ronald V. Miller Jr.'s answer
I have to give you the standard lawyer answer: it is hard to say. In the fast majority of cancer cases, you are going to need to file a lawsuit to get a recovery. So, and I'm sorry, it really depends on the facts of the case, who you believe is liable, how strong the case is, and so forth.

the law of the state where the suit or where the alleged misconduct occurred will govern. I dont know maryland law but it depends on the allegation against your wife and her involvement in the alleged incident. statutes of limitations generally have exceptions that are spelled out by the state law.
