Chris Glover, a lawyer in our firm’s Personal Injury section, has written a primer for attorneys interested in pursuing 18-wheeler and other heavy truck litigation. The book, Introduction to Truck Accident Claims: A Guide to Getting Started covers topics including the basics of trucking regulations and requirements; how to prepare a lawsuit for trial; and how to identify potential defendants including the carrier, the broker and the driver. Common issues that arise in commercial vehicle litigation, such as Hours of Service, fatigue, maintenance and products liability, are also covered. Chris says:

Cases involving commercial trucks are very different than standard cases involving a car crash. There are lots of rules and regulations surrounding commercial vehicles that a lawyer has to be familiar with in order to serve his or her clients fully. This book provides a road map to help lawyers evaluate a potential heavy truck case and learn what it takes to get this often complicated litigation on the path to a successful resolution.

Chris has dedicated his law practice to protecting the rights and interests of victims and survivors of catastrophic personal injury and wrongful death litigation. An AV Preeminent Lawyer, Chris has represented individuals and families in a wide range of serious injury and death claims. Included have been cases involving defective products, automobiles, helicopters, commercial trucks, and workplace accidents. Chris’ experience in litigating cases involving 18-wheelers and other heavy trucks gives him an understanding of the special investment of time and resources needed to take on these types of cases. He also has developed a detailed knowledge of the many rules and regulations that govern the commercial trucking industry. It’s absolutely necessary to have a working knowledge of these rules and regulations.

Chris’ book is available free to lawyers who are interested in learning more about trucking litigation.

Wonderful to work with

Beasley Allen did a great job with my case. They were wonderful to work with. They were available by phone when I needed them, treated me with the utmost respect and worked hard on my behalf. If a need arises in the future, I would definitely call on them again.
