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.
Voice-Activated Technology Expected to Increase Distracted-Driving Accidents

The campaign to keep drunk drivers off the road — pushing for stricter traffic laws, demanding stronger enforcement and promoting public education — finally seems to be paying off. Nationwide, there has been a 52 percent decrease in impaired-driving fatalities since 1982. However, just when the roads should be getting safer, distracted-driving accidents are increasing, and the next round of dashboard technology is only going to make matters worse.
Many people were surprised by the results of a comprehensive study comparing different kinds of driving distractions released by the American Auto Association (AAA) last summer. Researchers measured various cognitive activities related to attention during simulated driving scenarios that involved various communication technologies. They then rated the risk hazard of each activity:
- Listening to the radio — minimal risk
- Talking on a hand-held or hands-free cellphone — moderate risk
- Using voice-activated email — extensive risk
While some automotive safety authorities are pushing for hands-free cellphone use over hand-held devices, the AAA study suggests that both these options are equally bad — but not as bad as the new wave of voice-activated devices that car manufacturers are already marketing, promising drivers continual access to text messages, email and their Facebook and Twitter accounts.
All drivers need to be aware that focusing your attention on an incoming phone call or tweet means that you have stopped paying attention the road ahead. If you are in an auto accident and you suspect the other driver was distracted, speak with an experienced Florida auto accident attorney about recovering the damages you are legally entitled to claim for your auto accident injuries.
