Found a hair in my ground beef package at Walmart
Can you hire an attorney? Yes. Will some attorney do it for free? No. Will you pay your attorney lots of money? Yes. Will you recover anything when you sue? Unlikely. To win a lawsuit, you have to show how you were damaged. Did you have to seek therapy to recover from the emotional distress of finding the hair? Were you so traumatized you required hospitalization? "I was freaked out and unhappy to find a hair in my beef package" is not likely to get you any money.
The general advice above does not constitute an attorney-client relationship: you haven't hired me or given me confidential information by posting on this public forum, and my answer on this public forum does not constitute attorney-client advice.
You can certainly hire an attorney to help you, but since the level of damages would likely be fairly low it will be difficult to find one to take your case on contingency.
Please note, my answers to questions do NOT create an attorney/client relationship. Only after a written agreement is entered into between the parties is an attorney/client relationship created. Additionally, the responses posted here are done so on limited information and should not be fully relied upon without an in person consultation where the entire case is reviewed and discussed in detail.
If you are talking about suing Walmart, you are free to meet with civil attorneys and see if they will take on your lawsuit on a contingency basis if you don't want to pay for an attorney.
