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.
Drive Safely Around Commercial Motor Vehicles

- Semi/Truck Accidents
As part of Florida Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles’ “Share the Road” campaign, the state agency is encouraging drivers to be more aware of the safety needs of commercial motor vehicles (CMVs) while on the road.
CMVs include buses, semi-trucks and other larger vehicles that have certain operating limitations, such as long stopping distances, limited maneuverability and large blind spots. These limitations make it important for other drivers to use extra caution when sharing the roadway with these vehicles.
The following are some tips for motorists that can help them avoid serious crashes involving CMVs while on Florida’s roads and highways:
- Stay out of trucks’ blind spots whenever possible. There are large blind spots directly in front of, behind and on either side of the vehicles.
- Avoid tailgating in general — and especially around CMVs. If you tailgate, you will be in the vehicle’s blind spot and can crash into it if it has to stop unexpectedly.
- Understand how drivers of CMVs make right turns. Larger vehicles may need to swing out to the left before turning back to the right. Do not attempt to drive between the CMV and the curb in these situations. The driver will not be able to see you.
- Pass trucks on the left to ensure maximum visibility. Leave plenty of space in front of the truck when merging back to the right.
- Stay to the right side of your lane and do not speed up if a truck is attempting to pass you.
- Leave some extra space between you and the truck if you are stopped at a light behind one on an upward slope in case the CMV drifts backward before starting to move forward. If you stay to the left side of your lane, the driver will be able to see that you are stopped behind the vehicle.
Accidents involving CMVs can be particularly dangerous due to the sheer size and weight of these vehicles. If you have been involved in a Florida truck accident, contact a skilled personal injury attorney at Largey Law.
