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.
Accidents involving large trucks are on the rise, increasing by nearly 20 percent over the past two decades. Because of the size and weight of these trucks, crashes can be particularly devastating to those involved. In 2012, 10,093 people were killed in truck accidents and 25,000 people were injured as a result of crashes with large trucks.
While many people assume fatigue is the main factor in truck crashes, the most common cause is actually drug use, contributing to 26 percent of all crashes. Truck drivers’ use of prescription and illicit drugs affect their ability to react and maneuver large vehicles, thus increasing the likelihood of a serious crash.
As with most auto accidents, speed is a major factor in truck crashes, accounting for about 23 percent of all crashes. Another common issue is fatigue. Truck drivers are often asked to travel hundreds of miles every day, which can take a toll on their physical and mental alertness. When drivers are fatigued, they are far more likely to make a mistake resulting in an accident.
Additionally, even professional truck drivers sometimes violate common traffic laws, such as forgetting to use a turn signal or not fully stopping at an intersection. These mistakes, just as with any driver, can lead to a crash. Studies reveal that 9 percent of all truck accidents were the result of an illegal traffic maneuver by a truck driver.
Distractions are a major contributor to truck accidents. Any activity that takes a driver’s eyes and attention away from the road increases the likelihood of a crash. Distractions such as cell phones, food and loud passengers may play a role in these accidents.
When a crash involves a truck, there are a number of parties who may be liable, including drivers, trucking companies and equipment manufacturers. For the assistance you need after a serious truck accident, consult a dedicated Lake County injury attorney.
