Rob Register is a trial lawyer dedicated to helping individuals and their families in cases involving life-altering harm including brain and spinal cord injuries, amputations, burns and wrongful death. Rob has consistently recovered millions of dollars for his clients while relentlessly holding the responsible parties accountable. Rob has practiced law for twenty-two years and is a member of Beasley Allen’s Serious Injury and Products Liability Section. He is based out of the firm’s Atlanta office.
In August 2019, Rob, along with Chris Glover, the firm’s Managing Attorney for the Atlanta office, and Dan Philyaw, represented a truck driver injured in accident caused by an improperly secured ladder on a Charter Communications, LLC, truck. Injuries 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.
