Beasley Allen shareholder Leigh O’Dell is welcomed by Beasley Allen Report host, Gibson Vance, to discuss various common defective drugs and medical devices. Leigh was a graduate of Auburn University, majoring in accounting, before she went to and graduated from law school at the University of Alabama. During law school, Leigh clerked for a federal judge before coming to Beasley Allen. Leigh is heavily involved in the litigation surrounding the defective transvaginal mesh that is linked to serious complications and permanent injury in the U.S. The fibrous polypropylene mesh acts like a cheese grater on the softer organs and tissues it comes in contact with. This grating effect can rub a hole in the vaginal wall or other surrounding organs.
