Chris Largey is jurisprudence personified! He is first and foremost ethical and in these unpredictable times, ethics has become a rare trait. Mr. Largey possesses a deep understanding of the law as well as how it applies to people in their particular roles, be it judges, juries, attorneys, witnesses, doctors, hospitals, corporations and insurance companies. He also understands his clients needs and addresses them with honesty, compassion and always with their best interest at heart. Chris’s counsel is exemplary with regard to trusting his direction and recommendations of other professionals involved with handling a particular case as he utilizes only the best resources available. The staff of Largey Law are the finest I’ve had the pleasure of knowing, as they are professional, efficient and genuinely kind.

After I was involved in a serious not-at-fault auto accident, and in checking reviews on many local attorneys, we made an appointment with Largey Law. During the initial meeting, I had no doubt we had chose correctly and signed with their firm to represent me. Chris Largey represented me and he along with his associate Kim Reno, well what can I say, they always had my best interest at heart. They not only made every step of the way as easy as possible, but always looked out for my best interest. They also made certain I received all the medical care I needed and handled all the paperwork involved with my claim. They were ALWAYS on top of every thing, every step of the way through to the claim settlement. They really cared about me, and on multiple occasions went above and beyond to help me through this this difficult situation, as during this my husband passed away from leukemia. It was nice to know they were there for me and handling this. I so appreciate everything Chris and Kim and staff have done for me through this and in finalizing my settlement, thank you so much! All I can say is I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Largey Law, they are professional, knowledgeable, responsive and most of all, a caring group of folks.
What a great law firm! Very compassionate and understanding. Always got back with me in a timely manner. I definitely recommend!
Very thorough and professional... Will use them again if the need arises.
Swimming pools are staples of the Florida lifestyle. Whether you have a pool at your home or you spend time at a public pool or private facility, the last thing you want to have happen during a pool day is for you or a family member to slip, fall and suffer a serious injury. You can reduce the risk of such mishaps by becoming aware of the hazards that often lead to them.
Every year, hundreds of Floridians are injured when they slip and fall around the pool due to:
- Wet pool decking and standing water in areas around the pool
- Worn or missing slip-resistant material on ladders, diving boards, or concrete stairs at the corner of the pool
- Tool, equipment, hoses, toys, towels and other items lying near the pool
- Wet flooring in locker rooms and bathrooms at public pools
- Cracked, broken or uneven concrete on pool decks and the surrounding areas
- Defective diving boards and slides
In the unfortunate event that you get hurt at a pool, you may be able to pursue a personal injury lawsuit seeking compensation. Such lawsuits can be filed against hotels, water parks, cruise lines and even private homeowners. To prove negligence on the part of a pool owner or operator, you will need to show that they either knew or should have known that there was a dangerous condition at the pool and failed to fix it.
The pool owner or operator may argue that you were at least partially at fault for your accident. Common arguments are that the injured person engaged in horseplay or disregarded warning signs, or that the alleged dangerous condition was so open and obvious that any reasonable pool visitor would have avoided it.
If the defense convinces the jury that you were partially responsible for your pool accident, then any compensation award will be limited according to the percentage of fault assigned to you. For example, if you prove $100,000 in damages but are deemed to be 40 percent at fault, your award would be reduced by 40 percent and you would get $60,000.
