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.
The Rights and Responsibilities of Pedestrians in Florida
- posted: Jan. 25, 2015
- Pedestrian Accidents
All drivers know the importance of paying attention to other vehicles on the road. However, many are not as good with accounting for people traveling on foot. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 4,280 pedestrians died in traffic accidents in the U.S. in 2010, while 70,000 were injured.
To help avoid these accidents, drivers should always be aware of pedestrians when making turns or crossing intersections. Unlike other cars, people on foot can be difficult to spot, especially at night, so drivers should take extra care to watch out for them. Pedestrians can help by increasing their visibility at night by carrying a flashlight or wearing retro-reflective clothing.
Both pedestrians and drivers should remember who has the right of way. A pedestrian always has the right of way in a marked crosswalk and drivers should yield to them. Nonetheless, pedestrians should still look both ways and be sure drivers have seen them before proceeding across the road. Additionally, at intersections, pedestrians need to observe traffic signals and only cross when there’s a walk sign. The practice known as jaywalking — crossing the street on a “don’t walk” sign — is not only illegal, but also dangerous for pedestrians.
If there is a sidewalk along a road, pedestrians must walk on it rather than the road. These sidewalks are there for a reason and give passengers a safe means to travel by foot. However, if there is no sidewalk, a pedestrian may walk on the shoulder and should walk toward oncoming traffic rather than with it, thus increasing their ability to observe vehicles. Studies show that when drivers and pedestrians face each other, they are more likely to notice each other’s presence.
In many cases, pedestrian accidents are quite serious and may result in severe injuries. If this has happened to you or a loved one, meet with a knowledgeable injury attorney in Lake County right away.
