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.
Florida Regularly Tops Rankings of Deadliest Areas for Pedestrians

- Pedestrian Accidents
Florida cities regularly appear near the top of Smart Growth America’s biannual ranking of the deadliest places for pedestrians to walk.
The “Dangerous by Design” report is based on the rate of pedestrian deaths relative to the number of people who walk to work in an area.
The information is used to create a pedestrian danger index. For the 2017 rankings, 104 cities and metro areas were analyzed, and eight of the top 10 were in Florida. For context, the national average pedestrian danger index is 52.5. Below are what the top 10 most dangerous areas looked like in the 2017 rankings:
- Cape Coral-Fort Myers, Florida: 283.1
- Palm Bay-Melbourne-Titusville, Florida: 235.2
- Orlando-Kissimmee-Sanford, Florida: 234.7
- Jacksonville, Florida: 228.7
- Deltona-Daytona Beach-Ormond Beach, Florida: 228.2
- Lakeland-Winter Haven, Florida: 200.6
- Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater, Florida: 192.0
- Jackson, Mississippi: 189.6
- Memphis, Tennessee: 153.3
- North Port-Sarasota-Bradenton, Florida: 148.2
Why does Florida consistently have so many cities and metropolitan areas that rank high in this report? Some believe that a factor could be the state’s unusually large percentage of older residents, who may have slower reaction times and failing vision. The state also has a large number of tourists who are more likely to walk in certain areas after consuming alcohol.
However, as recently as 2014, the pedestrian fatality rate for elders in the state was only slightly higher than the national average, and research has indicated that the accidents are, by and large, local drivers hitting local pedestrians.
So, what’s the cause? Is it distracted driving? Is it simply that the state has more pedestrians than other states because the weather is so nice? If the latter was the case, states like California, Arizona and Texas would see higher than normal pedestrian accident rates. That’s not necessarily the case.
The Florida Department of Transportation continues to implement initiatives to decrease pedestrian accidents in the state. If you or a loved one has been injured due to someone else’s negligence, consult a trusted Central Florida personal injury attorney at Largey Law.
