Why do I have to hire a lawyer?

Actually, you don't. Unless you are mentally incompetent, you have the right to represent yourself in any legal proceedings, but it is extremely imprudent to do so - especially in a field of litigation as complex and difficult as pharmaceutical product liability. Even experienced trial attorneys may well have difficulty dealing with the peculiar complexities of a Tequin® case.

All areas of litigation require a thorough knowledge and comprehension of the rules of procedure and the various technical rules relating to the admission or exclusion of evidence during a trial. If you do represent yourself, you will be held to exactly the same standards as a lawyer, and the court will not make any allowance whatsoever for your lack of training and inexperience in the law.

In short, you are not required to hire a lawyer, but you should be aware that self-representation usually results in a legal disaster.
