About Chris

Chris has dedicated his practice to protecting the rights of survivors of catastrophic personal injury and victims of wrongful death. He graduated from Samford University’s Cumberland School of Law and practiced law in Birmingham, Alabama, for a number of years prior to joining Beasley Allen Law Firm in 2008.

Chris has represented injured individuals and their families in a wide range of serious injury and death claims, including those that were the result of defective products, car accidents, commercial truck accidents, workplace accidents and aviation accidents. His clients have received verdicts and settlements in the course of his career totaling over $100 million and is one of the Beasley Allen attorneys working from the firm’s Atlanta office.

Notable Cases

Most recently, Chris was the firm’s lead attorney litigating numerous cases involving the Takata airbag defect.  Tokyo-based Takata manufactured and sold defective air bag inflator systems, which can shoot metal fragments from the devices into the car like shrapnel. Airbags on both the driver’s and passenger’s side can explode even due to a minor accident, launching the largest automotive recall in American history. As a result of settlements with vehicle manufacturers Honda, BMW, Nissan, Subaru, Mazda and Toyota ranging from $68.2 million to $605 million, those affected by the defect are able to seek compensation.

Chris was a member of a 2017 trial team in Dekalb County Georgia that received a $2.6 million jury verdict in favor of the family of Alfred Holt, who was killed after a Michelin Pilot tire failed on the recreational vehicle he was driving and the RV crashed into a tree. The case was brought against Southland Motor Home Center, which provided maintenance and service on the RV and had refused to take any responsibility for his death.

Chris is particularly proud of the positive changes caused by his cases. For example, litigation against Sikorsky Aircraft and a component manufacturer resulted in two product design changes that prevented the use of dangerous designs from being used on aircraft in the future. He also was lead counsel on a $4.7 million trial verdict in Gwinnett County Georgia against seat belt manufacturer Key Safety Systems. The verdict was significant because it is one of the only verdicts of its type against an automobile component manufacturer.  In a similar case, he helped secure a $1 million trial verdict in Oklahoma for the victim of a drunk driving accident where there were product liability claims that a seatbelt failed in a Ford vehicle.

One of Chris’s first trial verdicts as a lawyer involved a log truck accident, and he has continued that work throughout his career. Recently, he has resolved significant truck wreck cases in Georgia, Alabama, Arkansas, Mississippi, Kentucky, Tennessee and the United Sates Virgin Islands.

Awards and Ratings

In 2011 and again in 2013, Chris was selected as Beasley Allen’s Lawyer of the Year for the Products Liability Section. In 2015 and 2016, he was selected as Beasley Allen’s Lawyer of the Year for the Personal Injury Section. He is a Martindale Hubbell AV Rated attorney, and was named to the Super Lawyers “Rising Stars” list in 2011 through 2014, which recognizes the top up-and-coming attorneys, and to the Super Lawyers list in 2015 through 2017.

His contributions to his profession and community were recognized when he was honored as the Jacksonville State University 2005 Young Alumni of the Year.

Professional Affiliations

Chris has been recognized as a leader by his peers through being elected as an officer to numerous professional associations, including chair of the American Association for Justice New Lawyer’s Division, president of the Southern Trial Lawyers Association and chair of the Emerging Leader’s Division of the Alabama Association for Justice. He is currently on the Executive Committee of the Georgia Trial Lawyers Association.

Publicity

A frequent lecturer, Chris has spoken across the country on issues concerning commercial truck litigation, defective products, trial skills and effective leadership. He has authored more than 50 papers for publication and presentation to various lawyer organizations.

In 2015, Chris authored a book, “An Introduction to Truck Accident Claims: A Guide to Getting Started.” The book is a primer for lawyers interested in trucking litigation, covering topics including the basics of trucking regulations and requirements, and how to prepare for a case involving commercial vehicles, including issues such as Hours of Service regulations, fatigue, maintenance and products liability. The book is available free to attorneys. To get your copy, visit chrisglover-law.com/book.

They attend Christ Covenant Church in Buckhead and the family is active in their children’s school, Whitefield Academy.  Chris is a former adult Sunday school teacher and a former deacon at Montgomery First Baptist Church. He is a board member for Urban TREC Homeless Ministry and TREC India Orphanage and is also a member of Alabama Citizens for Constitutional Reform, Jacksonville State University Alumni Association’s Montgomery Chapter and the Jacksonville State University Alumni Association Advisory Board.
