Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney who will try my very best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply, but rest assured, I am working on your question.
If you weren't injured or incurred any medical costs due to the worm in the beer, then a monetary recovery is very unlikely. The law compensates people for actual injuries that they sustain due to defective products, but normally not psychological issues like being apprehensive to drink a certain type of beer.
If you were to contact the company, they might offer you some type of reimbursement for the beer or some other gesture of good will to keep you as a customer, but that is probably the best you are going to do here..
The stories about someone getting a million dollars for finding a mouse in a beer or a finger in a can of tuna or something similar are just urban legends and don't end up happening in real life unless there are actual injuries that occur that are provable.
