By Brian Chase on May 25, 2012 - No comments

For the fifth year in a row, Mission Viejo mom Loree Glenn will make the arduous seven-day 545-mile journey from San Francisco to Los Angeles on her bicycle. The AIDS Lifecycle ride, for most people the adventure of a lifetime, begins this year on June 3. This major annual event comprises nearly 2,500 riders and 7,000 volunteers. The ride raises millions of dollars in funding to support HIV/AIDS services of the L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center and the San Francisco AIDS Foundation. The AIDS/Lifecycle ride also serves to promote awareness and knowledge among the ride’s participants, donors and the general public.

Through social media with Loree and her husband Kevin, BISNAR | CHASE will follow Loree’s journey through photos, videos and daily blog posts. We are proud to have been Loree’s corporate sponsor for the last five years.

Mesh Failure Attorneys

By Brian Chase on May 25, 2012 - No comments

Vaginal Mesh Failure AttorneysThe mesh failure lawyers at Bisnar and Chase are shocked by the large number of victims continuing to come forward to pursue compensation from the manufacturers who produced their defective devices. The FDA has reported receiving more than 2,800 reports of mesh complications between January of 2008 and December of 2010. At the time, many felt that these numbers had been inflated, but new studies as well as a steady increase in reports have validated patients’ concerns that vaginal mesh products have a dangerously high failure rate.

The attorneys at Bisnar | Chase Personal Injury Attorneys, LLP are well known for their contributions towards product defect awareness and Plaintiff’s rights. Brian Chase, senior partner, has written “Still Unsafe at Any Speed” to help inform the public of dangerous defective auto parts and has obtained several multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements from companies producing defective devices. In August of 2011, Brian secured a 24.7 million dollar verdict for a client who suffered serious injuries while using a defective product. …Read the rest »
