Atlanta, GA – As we look back on 2023, Beasley Allen Law Firm’s Atlanta Office stands out with an impressive record of achievements.
The firm’s Georgia office secured over $150 million in verdicts and settlements, making it a remarkable year. Notably, the firm secured multiple 8-figure trucking, product liability and premise liability settlements and numerous 7-figure settlements, including those involving medical malpractice, commercial vehicles and premises liability.
These accomplishments are a testament to the firm’s dedication and vast expertise in the legal field.
One area our Atlanta office specializes in is handling negligence cases against trucking companies. In 2023 alone, we secured tens of millions of dollars in compensation for our clients.
One of the significant trucking cases involved broker liability. These cases are widely acknowledged to be the toughest of all trucking lawsuits. The laws protect brokers from responsibility when choosing a career to place on the roadway. Finding the evidence needed to get these cases to a jury is an extreme challenge. “We were able to put together what I thought was the perfect broker liability case. We unearthed evidence against this company that had never been seen in litigation. We began this case with no offer and the broker claiming they would never offer anything. At the end of the day, our hard work allowed for the client’s significant recovery. It’s why I decided to be a trial lawyer for victims,” Glover said of the case.
Another example of the office’s success was a $15 million confidential settlement involving a wrongful death and contested liability trucking case. Intense discovery and the retention of numerous experts are a necessity in these cases. “These cases almost always are about more than what happened on the day of the wreck. When you are able to show that a driver had a long history of roadway violations that put the public at risk, you are on your way to getting the client fully compensated. It’s sad when lives are needlessly lost. Almost every major trucking case starts with the fact that a dangerous driver should have never been on the road in the first place,” Miller said when discussing major trucking cases, which he also handles regularly.
In the area of premises liability, Beasley Allen is following up 2022 with another big year in 2023, as we continue to hold premises owners and occupiers – including apartment complexes and their entities. accountable for failing to keep the tenants and the public safe. In one example, Beasley Allen premises liability lead attorney Parker Miller and his co-counsel secured a $26 million settlement in a deadly Georgia apartment complex shooting case. The victims were killed by stray bullets from a shooting involving other parties in what was an extremely dangerous complex.
“The defendant’s apartment complex had a history of violent crime. They were warned consistently about the dangers. We absolutely were not settling this case unless the defendants did the right thing, which they ultimately did, but not before precious life was lost and years of litigation ensued,” Miller said of the case. “Many of the complexes that we litigate against are owned or managed by out of state investment companies that could care less about the deplorable conditions that exist at these properties.” In total, the Firm resolved over $50 million in premises liability cases in 2023.
Violence at apartment complexes throughout Georgia have gained attention across the State of Georgia owners’ inaction allows the violence to continue. Our Atlanta office is continuing to investigate serious premises liability cases across Georgia and the Southeast that involve criminal and sexual violence, fires, electrocutions, carbon monoxide poisoning, and poor structural integrity.
Our firm saw no shortage of clients who were injured or killed due to defective products in 2023. We assisted several clients who were injured due to the negligence of product manufacturers, successfully securing just over $85 million in compensation for our clients. Most of these cases include auto product claims. One such case involved the crushing death of a child seated in the back seat of his parent’s vehicle. His parents placed him in the back seat, where the vehicle warnings instructed them to do so. They had no idea that doing so placed him within the crush zone of the vehicle for rear impacts. The parents courageously stood up to this corporation for not protecting children in the back seat.
Another case involves a man starting off in life who was killed by his airbag. The police initially investigated the case as a drive by shooting, but later learned that the airbag exploded during deployment. He wasn’t even in an accident.
“These cases exemplify what it means to work at Beasley Allen. Our firm motto is Helping those Who Need it Most. This child and young man could do nothing to protect themselves, nor did they do anything to put themselves in harm’s way,” Glover commented. “We are honored to have the opportunity to stand for these people who could not stand for themselves.”
