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.
Unsafe Flooring Responsible for Many Slip-and-Fall Injuries
- posted: Mar. 10, 2014
While most people realize that a fall can result in a serious injury, such as a broken arm or hip, the actual scope of the problem usually falls outside the public’s perception. In contrast, business owners, who pay high insurance premiums in anticipation of slip-and-fall accidents on their premises, and their insurance companies, are acutely aware of the problem. A recent interview with the president of the National Floor Safety Institute (NFSI) — yes, the problem is real enough to merit a research and public relations agency — gives an interesting perspective on how the flooring and building maintenance industries view slip-and-fall hazards.
In the interview, NFSI President Russell Kendzior urges architects and property owners to utilize the new floor safety standards developed by the NFSI and the American National Standards Institute that rate floor traction. According to the NFSI, the causes of slip-and-fall accidents are as follows:
- Poor traction on walking surfaces — 55 percent
- Footwear — 24 percent
- Lack of hazard warning — 10 percent
- Inadequate training in floor maintenance — eight percent
- Fraud — three percent
According to Kendzior, public establishments with high-traction floors see a 90 percent reduction in their slip-and-fall claims. Installing good flooring is just the beginning, however. Businesses must also train their staff to clean the floors properly using safe, nonslippery products. Paying more attention to floor traction is especially important with the aging of the baby boomer generation. Senior citizens are at the greatest risk of suffering an injury from a slip-and-fall accident outside the home.
Public facilities such as restaurants, stores and hotels may be required to pay high premises liability premiums, but that does not mean that the insurance companies are willing to pay fair compensation to injured parties, even when the accident was preventable. At Largey Law we know how devastating a slip-and-fall injury can be, which is why we commit all our resources to securing a just outcome for our clients.
