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.
No-Fault Auto Insurance in Florida
- posted: Feb. 17, 2014
- Auto Accidents
Florida law allows victims of car accidents to recover damages through no-fault auto insurance. This means that no matter who or what caused the collision, you are eligible for compensation for your resulting medical expenses and lost wages. This provision allows you to pay your bills right away and often eradicates the need for a long legal case to determine liability before damages are paid.
How PIP works
No-fault insurance is sometimes referred to as PIP, or personal injury protection. This aspect of an insurance policy provides for damages recovery up to a certain monetary threshold (in Florida, usually $10,000).
Although you are entitled to your PIP benefits in accordance with your insurance policy, you will only be allowed to cover necessary and reasonable expenses that were caused by the accident in question. If you are found to be using PIP funds to cover other healthcare issues or extravagant procedures, you may face insurance fraud charges.
Additionally, there are some circumstances in which the PIP insurer will not compensate for an injured party’s medical costs, such as if the insured was on a motor cycle at the time of the crash, if he or she was driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, was involved in the accident during commission of a crime, and some other conditions.
Personal injury lawsuits
This aspect of your auto insurance policy may seem to remove the need to file a lawsuit, but this is not the case. If your medical costs exceed your PIP policy limits, you may be able to file a lawsuit. At this point, an experienced auto accident lawyer will review the facts of your case and determine if you have a valid legal claim under the negligence laws of Florida.
