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 insurance law provides for no-fault coverage of some damages incurred in an auto accident. Generally, such damages are limited to lost wages and medical bills. Under some circumstances, you may be entitled to recover additional money.
Pain and suffering
In addition to economic damages, many victims of auto accidents in Florida suffer noneconomic damages as well. Such pain and suffering can include:
- Limitations on physical activity
- Physical aches and pains
- Emotional distress from scars and disfigurement
- Shortening of life
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Loss of consortium with a loved one (loss of companionship)
Unlike in some other tort-based states, Florida law contains a threshold requirement for recovery of noneconomic damages: the injury must be permanent. A Florida accident attorney can gather the evidence necessary to make a compelling case for recovery of special damages. Permanent injury can include:
- Significant and permanent loss of an important bodily function: A complete loss of one of the five senses – touch, smell, sight, hearing and taste – certainly belongs in this category. Other people may be “legally blind” or “legally deaf,” meaning that these people can hear and see, but with a greatly diminished capacity as a result of the accident.
- Wrongful death: Death is the most permanent injury of all, and certainly qualifies as a permanent injury under Florida law.
- Permanent injury within a reasonable degree of medical probability: An expert witness is often needed to review the victim’s case and provide an opinion about the extent of the damage.
- Permanent and significant disfigurement or scarring: It may be up to a jury to draw the line between “normal” and “permanent” scarring and disfigurement.
