Our Mesh Lawyers in the News
Since 2006, Blasingame, Burch, Garrard & Ashley, P.C., has been aggressively litigating defective transvaginal mesh lawsuits from across the country.
Our lawyers were leaders in the Mentor ObTape multidistrict litigation (MDL) in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Georgia. In 2010, our attorneys took the first case to trial in the Mentor MDL (the only case to be tried in the Mentor MDL to date) and settled the claims of a number of plaintiffs for a confidential amount after one week of trial.
Our firm continues to be at the forefront of transvaginal mesh litigation on a national scope.
Beginning in 2010 with our motion to consolidate all federal cases involving C.R. Bard, Inc.’s pelvic repair products, our attorneys helped lay the groundwork for the coordinated federal litigation involving the transvaginal mesh devices sold by several different manufacturers now pending before the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of West Virginia.
BBGA shareholders Henry Garrard, III, and Josh Wages were appointed by the court to serve in key leadership roles in each of the four separate MDLs involving C.R. Bard, Inc., American Medical Systems, Inc., Boston Scientific Corp. and Ethicon, Inc., products. We are preparing for the first bellwether trial date in the Bard MDL, which is set to begin on February 5, 2013.
Because of our knowledge and experience in transvaginal mesh litigation, our attorneys have often been sought out for information and insight about the litigation by local and national media, including print media, television and new media sources.
We appreciate the important role that the media plays in educating the public about the serious health risks posed by these pelvic mesh products, the ongoing efforts to seek justice for injured women across the country, and broader issues surrounding the federal government’s clearance process for these medical devices. We are heartened that the media has taken interest in this national women’s health crisis.
