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.
Wrong Way Driving Becoming Increasingly Problematic in Central Florida

When drivers travel against traffic on roads — particularly on highways — they are putting their own lives and the lives of all other motorists at risk. New data suggest that wrong way driving is more prevalent than we may think, especially on the 109 miles of toll roads operated by the Orlando-Orange County Expressway Authority (OOCEA). The company is responding to growing concerns by implementing new safety measures following a ten-year study.
Conducted by University of Central Florida engineering professor Haitham Al-Deek between 2003 and 2012, the study yielded the following findings:
- Over the ten-year period, 22 accidents occurred due to wrong way driving on OOCEA roads, resulting in six fatalities and 33 injuries.
- Nearly 75 percent of the 400 people interviewed as part of the study reported having seen motorists drive against traffic. About 25 percent said they knew someone who had witnessed wrong way driving.
- According to Professor Al-Deek, a mere ten percent of wrong way driving incidents are reported to law enforcement.
- Most instances of wrong way driving occur around 2 am.
- Drivers who go the wrong way are most often under the influence of alcohol, drugs or other controlled substances.
- Driver confusion over roadways, ramps and other traffic configuration — particularly among older motorists — is another common factor in wrong way driving.
With funding from OOCEA, Professor Al-Deek is now overseeing installation of monitors that can sense vehicles traveling the wrong way, to be located at five on and off ramps across the 408 and the BeachLine Expressway. These monitors can send a signal to dispatch law enforcement and hopefully avoid serious car accidents before they occur. He further suggests installing more signage and flashing lights that would warn drivers when they are going in the wrong direction.
