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.
Understanding Your Legal Rights After an Amusement Park Accident
- posted: Sep. 30, 2021
- Personal Injury
Millions of people flock to Central Florida every year to visit Disney World, Universal Orlando and our other famous popular theme parks and attractions. While most visitors have an enjoyable time without incident, some sustain injuries on rides or are hurt in other mishaps, sometimes fatally. If you or a loved one is hurt at a Florida amusement park, you may be able to pursue a personal injury claim to recover compensation.
Amusement park patrons can suffer serious injuries or death in a number of situations, such as:
- Falls due to inadequate safety railings or guardrails
- Slips and falls on cracked, uneven or wet surfaces
- Drowning at water parks
- Injuries near animal enclosures
- Assault and battery on park grounds
- Monorail, shuttle and car accidents
- Accidents at hotels, restaurants and casinos on or near park property
The basis for a legal claim depends on the circumstances surrounding each accident, but in general there are three possible legal theories:
- Ordinary negligence — Amusement park operators and their employees owe a duty of care to visitors. Negligence is failure to act reasonably in ensuring the safety of guests, thereby causing an injury. For example, a ride operator may fail to adequately maintain their equipment, allowing dangers like loose seats or broken restraints to persist, which can eventually lead to an injury-causing accident.
- Premises liability — Park owners and operators have a duty to keep property safe and to promptly repair any dangerous condition that they knew or should have known about. The same applies to hotels, restaurants and other businesses around the park. Slip and falls are the most common type of premises liability claims, but assault victims often use this legal theory to claim inadequate security was provided.
- Product liability — Accidents can occur due to defective mechanical components on rides. Items sold at gift shops may be defective or dangerous. It takes a thorough investigation to determine who should bear responsibility.
Defendants in amusement park injury suits often argue that the victim shared in the blame for the accident. An experienced theme park injury attorney knows how to counter allegations that you failed to comply with safety rules or that you were aware of and accepted the risks associated with a ride or other attraction.
