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.
Tips for Preventing Traumatic Injuries
- posted: Apr. 15, 2019
Traumatic injuries are sudden, severe and require immediate medical attention. These injuries often come out of nowhere and leave victims reeling. According to Orlando Health, the most common types of traumatic injuries are suffered in car crashes and motorcycle accidents, by pedestrians struck by vehicles, and through falls and burns. While most victims of serious injury are not responsible for the trauma they’ve suffered, there are steps people can take to prevent traumatic injuries in these common events.
Car and motorcycle accidents
Preventable automobile accidents happen all too frequently, and these crashes can change lives forever. Fortunately, simple measures can be taken to greatly reduce the risk of serious traumatic injury from an accident. Following these basic guidelines may help save your life and the lives of others:
- Don’t text or talk on your cellphone while driving.
- Obey the speed limit.
- Never take the wheel if you aren’t sober.
- Wear your seat belt and check to make sure your passengers are buckled in.
- Check your mirrors regularly and be on the lookout for other cars, pedestrians and bicyclists.
- Use you turn signal before you turn and make sure it is off after the turn is complete.
Even falling at ground level can result in serious harm for older adults, causing injury that ranges from bruising to broken bones. Ladder falls are another common cause of trauma, and can cause death. To help prevent falls:
- Keep walkways clear and remove tripping hazards.
- Provide proper lighting throughout all areas of your home.
- Choose shoes that have good traction.
- Have someone spot you when you are using a ladder, and make sure the ladder is securely positioned.
Florida is one of the highest-risk states for pedestrians in the whole country. When you are walking, you should not assume that drivers always see you or that they will obey traffic rules. It is best to only cross at crosswalks and when you have the walk signal. Wearing bright clothing can help drivers to see you at dawn, dusk or nighttime.
Third-degree burns cause nerve death and other permanent damage, while second-degree burns often come with extreme pain. According to the National Fire Protection Association, 60 percent of home fire deaths happened in a home that either had no smoke alarm or one that didn’t work. Ensure that your home is equipped with smoke alarms, and check and replace the batteries of each device at regular intervals. Never leave a stove or open flame unattended, and make sure that matches, chemicals and hot liquids are inaccessible to children.
No matter how careful you are in all of these situations, it can be impossible to prevent another person from behaving recklessly. If you or a loved one has suffered a traumatic injury in Central Florida, you may be entitled to monetary damages to help with your recovery.
