Beasley Allen lawyer Chris Glover, who works in our Atlanta office, discusses how a defective seat belt case helped ease the grief of a daughter who blamed herself for her mother’s death and removed a dangerous product from the market—epitomizing why he practices law at Beasley Allen. The case involved a manufacturer opting to use cheaper, defective seatbelts in vehicle passenger seats, resulting in the death of a mother in Gwinnett County, Georgia, after she was thrown from the car her daughter was driving as the result of a crash. A jury found the defective seat belt caused the woman’s death, easing her daughter’s guilt and prompting the manufacturer to change its practices. Chris says the case, and other cases like it, are the reason he loves practicing law.
