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.
When a Cruise Ship Paradise Becomes a Nightmare
- posted: Mar. 17, 2014
Families with children often look forward to a cruise ship vacation because these packages promise the best of both worlds — plenty of pampering for the parents in addition to a range of activities to keep the kids happy and occupied. The fact that cruises are supposed to an escape from dull, everyday reality can make on-board accidents seem particularly shocking.
In 2013, two young children were involved in drowning accidents on cruise ships. Four-year-old Chase Lykken suffered a near drowning in a Disney cruise ship pool in March that left him severely brain-damaged. In October, six-year-old Qwentyn Hunter died after drowning in a swimming pool aboard a Carnival Cruise ship. It is unclear whether there were lifeguards on duty in either incident. Unlike other public pool facilities in the United States, cruise ships are not legally required to have a lifeguard present — even when there are young children aboard.
In addition to drowning, cruise passengers are also at risk of injury or death from the following:
- Contagious or infectious diseases
- Slip-and-fall injuries
Florida premises liability law requires all businesses and facilities that serve the public, including restaurants, recreational facilities and hotels, to maintain safe and secure environments. When they fail to do so, the owners or management company can be held liable for injuries to patrons. Suing for damages after a preventable cruise ship accident is more complicated as many of these companies are registered outside the United States. Still, it is in your best interest to consult with a knowledgeable personal injury attorney before accepting any settlement offer from a cruise line company.
The boating and water sports culture in central Florida is one of its greatest assets. Unfortunately, when careless individuals and companies do not respect boating safety rules, others often suffer the consequences. An experienced attorney can address your legal rights and best options for recovering compensation for your injuries.
