Beasley Allen Attorney Chris Glover

About Chris

Chris Glover is the Managing Attorney for Beasley Allen Law Firm’s Atlanta office. He 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.

Notable Cases

Top 10 Motor Vehicle Settlements

Most recently, Chris was recognized for having obtained three of the top ten motor vehicle settlements in Georgia, Florida and South Carolina for 2021. These settlements totaled $34.5 million and consisted of a $19,500,000.00 automotive product liability settlement, $9,000,000.00 automotive product liability settlement, and a $6,000,000,00 truck wreck settlement.

Truck Driver Injured by Improperly Secured Ladder

In 2019, Chris and his law partners, Rob Register and Dan Philyaw, represented a truck driver injured in an accident caused by an improperly secured ladder on a Charter Communications, LLC, truck. The injuries that the driver sustained as a result of the accident forced him to endure several surgical procedures. He is also facing a lifetime of pain and will never be able to return to his job as a truck driver. An investigation by the firm’s attorneys revealed that, despite its own published safety policies, Charter failed to properly train its driver in how to secure the ladder to the truck. The Gwinnett County, Georgia, jury awarded Brandon a $2.83 million verdict, sending a message that companies must act responsibly to ensure the safety of their employees as well as to ensure the public is safe on the roadways they share.

Toyota 4Runner – Defective Rear Axle Death

In 2018, Chris and his law partner Ben Baker obtained a $12 million verdict against Toyota Motor Corp. and Toyota Motor Sales USA in Anderson, South Carolina state court while representing the family of a high school senior who lost her life as a result of a defective rear axle in a Toyota 4Runner. The defect in the axle caused it to fracture allowing the vehicle to become uncontrollable and roll into a power pole.

Defective Takata Airbags

Chris was also the firm’s lead attorney litigating numerous cases involving the Takata airbag defect.  Tokyo-based Takata manufactured and sold defective airbag 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.

Michelin Pilot Tire Failure Death

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.

High Impact Cases

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.

Truck Accidents

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 States Virgin Islands.

Professional Associations

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 past chair of the Georgia Trial Lawyers Association’s Education Committee and serves on the Trucking Committee of the Attorney Information Exchange Group (AIEG) and is a member of the Academy of Truck Accident Attorneys.

In 2018, Chris was inducted into membership for the Georgia Chapter of the American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA). Membership into ABOTA is by invitation only following a rigorous nomination and voting process. Criteria evaluated include exceptional jury trial skills, civility, professionalism, and integrity.

Awards & Recognitions

In 2019, Chris was selected as a Distinguished Leader in the Georgia Legal Awards, presented by The Daily Report. Distinguished Leader awards go to lawyers who achieved impressive results in the previous year and demonstrated clear leadership skills that helped them achieve those results. The Daily Report is the leading legal publication of metro Atlanta and the state of Georgia, providing vigorously researched and purposefully presented news and intelligence that has wide-ranging implications for legal practice in the South.

Chris was named to the LawDragon 500 Leading Plaintiff Consumer Lawyers, which is the 500 best attorneys across the nation in this category. In 2018, he was selected as Beasley Allen’s Litigator of the Year. In 2011 and again in 2013, he was selected as the firm’s Lawyer of the Year for the Products Liability Section and was selected as Lawyer of the Year for the Personal Injury Section in 2015 and 2016. He is a Martindale Hubbell AV Rated attorney and was named to the Best Lawyers list as well as the Super Lawyers “Rising Stars” list (2011 through 2014), which recognizes the top up-and-coming attorneys. Chris has been named to the Super Lawyers, for both Mid-South Region and Georgia, annually since 2015.

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

Community Involvement

Chris is married to the former Erin Henley, and they have two children, Kaitlyn and Andrew. They attend Christ Covenant Church in Buckhead where Chris serves as an Elder and Community Group Leader. 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 Jacksonville State University Alumni Association’s Atlanta Chapter.
