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.
Motor vehicle accident cases — whether they involve cars, SUVs, trucks, motorcycles or ATVs — share many similarities. However, lawsuits seeking damages for injuries caused by 18-wheelers and other large commercial trucks tend to be more challenging due to the complexity of the issues that can arise.
One reason truck accident lawsuits are distinct is that truck drivers and the trucking industry are subject to extensive federal and state regulations. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulation Act (FMCSRA) limits how many hours per day a trucker can drive and requires driver background checks, regular driver evaluations and other actions. Evidence that a trucker or trucking company violated the FMCSRA can be relevant in an injured person’s lawsuit.
Accident severity is another differentiator in truck accidents. An 18-wheeler can weigh up to 80,000 pounds, which is about 20 times heavier than the average passenger vehicle. The extra weight makes trucks harder to steer and to stop and can translate into extra force upon impact in a collision. This means drivers of normal vehicles are likely to suffer serious injuries or even death in truck wrecks. Various statistics highlight the danger: 74 percent of all fatal passenger vehicles cases involve a large truck and 68 percent of all truck accident fatalities are occupants of passenger vehicles.
Determining liability in a truck accident case tends to be more complicated because liability can be shared by several parties, including the driver, the trucking company that employed the driver and a company that manufactured or installed a defective part leading to a loss of control. To be able to effectively identify the parties that may bear responsibility, your attorney should be highly skilled in accident investigations.
Finally, insurance issues are almost always more complicated in truck accident cases. Each potentially liable party likely has their own insurance policy. These may include the truck’s owner, the trucking company, the shipper of the truck’s cargo and the truck’s service provider or repairer. That means you, as the injured person, could be up against several powerful defense teams at once. This reality calls for the attention of an experienced attorney.
