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.

Following my car accident I was referred by a friend to Largey Law Firm. Chris Largey agreed to take my case. He and Rosie along with his staff were very reassuring that they would take care if all my legal issues dealing with the insurance companies. He was not only concerned about my case but also about my physical condition. Chris referred me to health care workers that were a great asset to my healing process. Chris handled everything for me which allowed me to concentrate on healing. I would highly recommend the Largey Law Firm to anyone who needs someone to get justice for them.

As a family law attorney, I had the opportunity to work with Chris in a case involving an injunction that was part of a family law matter that I was involved in. I wholeheartedly recommend him as a criminal law attorney. In my opinion, he is one of the best I have ever had the pleasure of working with!
Informative friendly and helpful professional. Passionate and caring for the right of the person represented.
Poisoning Is a Leading Cause of Injury Death in Florida
- posted: Aug. 15, 2019
In Florida, drug overdoses are classified as poisonings, and drug overdose is the most common form of poisoning injury. In a partial reflection of the problems that opioids and other drugs continue to pose for adults of all ages, statistics from Florida Health show that in 2016, poisoning was recorded as the reason for 4,985 injury-related fatalities across the state, making it the leading cause of injury death.
People between 25 and 64 accounted for 4,311, or 86 percent, of poisoning deaths in Florida. While drug addiction can be incredibly hard to combat, there are precautions that can be taken to prevent people from getting their hands on drugs they should not be able to access. Following a doctor’s orders about the correct dosage and use and storing prescription medicines securely can also help.
Drugs, however, are not alone in claiming lives too early. Household cleaning products, makeup, and personal care products are other common causes of poisoning. That’s why cleaning products carry instructions and warnings that are important to follow. Mixing different chemicals can cause harmful reactions; for example, when bleach and ammonia interact, gaseous cyanide can be produced. Installing a carbon monoxide alarm and making sure its batteries are fresh can alert you to poisonous levels of this colorless, odorless gas in your home. Keeping ovens and other appliances in good repair is another important preventative measure.
Car crashes, falls and firearms are other leading causes of injury death
Of course, poisoning is far from the only risk that Floridians face. Following falls and car accidents, each of which killed over 3,100 people, firearm incidents were the fourth most common cause of injury death in Florida. In 2016, 2,696 people were killed by guns, and people over the age of 65 and between the ages of 25 and 34 were more likely to die from a firearm injury than individuals in any other age group. Suffocation, drowning, cuts or piercings, fire or flame injuries, transportation accidents and nature/environmental causes rounded out the top 10 causes of Florida injury deaths.
Even when you are on the lookout for potential dangers and you follow all the safety rules, someone else’s mistake or recklessness could make you the victim of an unintentional injury — and subject you to expenses ranging from medical bills and repair costs to lost income.
