You may have a defective product. You need injury to sue. Have you required medical treatment? What is your prognosis? It may be no harm, no foul. You may only be entitled to a refund if you did not suffer a medical injury. As such, that would not be worth a lawsuit. Contrary to advertisements on television, every claim does not warrant money. In fact, you might call one of those firms. You will likely speak with a call screening service, certainly not likely to ever speak with one of those lawyers. That might, however, be a route to go with this type claim. In a few weeks or months, they might advise you to call someone else. I wish you the best.
