It is never easy to use a attorney for anything. Mr largey made it easy. He coached me through our entire process and really went out of his way to make sure i was taken care of. Its a good feeling knowing that your attorney has your back.

I am a trial attorney who had been practicing law for ten years. Attorneys only hire the best when the things that matter the most in their own lives are threatened with harm. That is why I hired Christopher R. Largey of Largey Law when my family, children, and career were maliciously attacked and deceitfully threatened. Mr. Largey is respected by our judges, other attorneys, and the community at large, and as a result he is routinely hired by lawyers who need to be represented fully. He never backs down, he is never pushed, and he is compassionate. He absolutely understood the gravity of the family dynamic that he had to protect in my case. Whenever a lie was told, he would immediately and aggressively confront it head-on, exposing the same. His skillful use of courtroom practice and his knowledge of the evidence code brought the truth to light. The result was a resounding legal victory that protected my children, as well as the complete vindication of my character and my career. Though Chris is not even a family law lawyer, I knew he was the right attorney for this challenge. He stood there for me, and I will never regret hiring him for as long as I live.
Florida Is the Most Dangerous State in the Nation for Bicyclists
- posted: Nov. 15, 2019
In 2017, 116 bicyclists died in Florida accidents. Though this number is shocking and saddening enough on its face, it may be even more so to learn that the number of people killed while cycling in the state increased by 34 percent between 2010 and 2016, and 2017 was actually the least deadly year for bicyclists in Florida since 2010.
As published in Orlando Weekly, data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) shows that bicycling deaths were 56 percent higher in Florida than they were in the next-highest state, Louisiana. Within Florida, Pinellas County specifically and the Tampa Bay metro area in general was shown to be the most dangerous place to ride a bike, with 7 deaths per 100,000 residents. Pedestrian deaths in the Sunshine State are also significantly above the national average.
There are a number of factors that make Florida roads risky for cyclists, who often suffer serious injury because they lack the protections a car affords. Florida is home to a large population of senior citizens, and some of them may continue to drive even when their senses and reflexes are not as sharp as they need to be. The tourists who flock to Florida year-round also pose a threat, since they may not be familiar with the state’s roads or traffic laws. So these drivers are added to the pool of motorists who already present risks through road rage, by failing to share the road with cyclists or driving while impaired by alcohol or drugs — in a state whose population density continues to increase.
These are troubling realities for bicyclists in Florida who make use of this healthy, practical and environmentally friendly mode of transportation and exercise. But knowing bicycle safety rules and putting them into practice can help cyclists to recognize and avoid certain dangers.
