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.

Who Will Pay My Medical Bills After an Accident?
- posted: Nov. 29, 2015
Every single accident and every single injury will have a different outcome under the law. The best way to find out who may be held responsible for the cost of your injuries is by speaking to an experienced attorney.
In Florida vehicle accidents, there are three different types of insurance that can pay your medical costs. Personal injury protection (PIP) insurance covers the first $10,000 of your medical damages. It is paid by your insurance company regardless of who caused the accident. If another person caused the accident and they have proper insurance, their liability insurance may pay your medical costs. If another driver is uninsured or underinsured, your own insurance company can end up paying if you have uninsured motorist coverage.
In nearly all types of accidents, Florida law uses comparative negligence to determine who is at fault and for how much. This means that each party is responsible for paying a percentage of the costs based on the percentage of the fault the jury assigns to them, ranging from 0%-100%. For example, if a jury finds that another driver was 75% at fault for your accident, that driver would be responsible for 75% of your medical costs. If the jury found that you were 50% responsible, the other driver would only be responsible for 50% of your costs. Unfortunately, this means that your recovery could be limited if you were at fault for an accident. Hiring an experienced Florida personal injury attorney is essential for maximizing your recovery under the law.
Depending on where and how you were injured, a property owner, tenant, government or doctor could be held responsible. Nursing homes, hospitals, dog owners and contractors can all be made to compensate you under the law if they are found to be at fault. If you were hurt at work, your employer may be forced to pay under the state’s workers’ compensation statutes.
If a defective or dangerous product caused your injury, it may be possible to hold a manufacturer, retailer or distributor liable in a court of law. This process may require the use of experts and highly technical evidence. Having a knowledgeable products liability attorney on your side will make this process much easier.
Determining who is legally responsible for your injury often requires the filing of a lawsuit. Most cases settle before or during trial, but in rare cases, fault is determined by a jury after a civil trial. While no attorney can tell you exactly how your case will be resolved, it will be helpful to contact a reputable Florida personal injury attorney at Largey Law as soon as possible to learn about your rights and the potential outcomes of your claims.
