CAR ACCIDENTS ARE THE LEADING CAUSE OF PERSONAL INJURY IN THE UNITED STATES
When fighting for damages in Lake County & Citrus County, put 19 years of legal experience in your corner
According to the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, 227,998 car accidents occurred on state roadways in 2011 alone. These accidents involved 334,809 drivers and averaged out to 625 crashes per day. Chances are good that you will one day be involved in a motor vehicle accident. If you are, the attorneys at Largey Law, P.A. in Lake County & Citrus County are ready to discuss your incident and determine if you have a valid accident claim.
What should I do immediately after a car accident?
Auto accidents are incredibly stressful, but if you can, you need to remain calm in the aftermath of a car wreck. The actions you take in the minutes, hours and days that follow can make a huge difference in any litigation stemming from the incident.
-Make sure no one is seriously injured. If everyone can be safely moved, get them to safety and contact the police. If there are serious injuries, contact emergency services.
-Get contact information from everyone involved in the accident, but say nothing. Admit no guilt and no fault.
-Take pictures of the scene and all vehicles involved in the collision.
-See a medical doctor as soon after the accident as possible. Injuries suffered in traffic accidents do not always present symptoms right away. Additionally, if you do not seek treatment from a medical doctor within 14 days of your accident, your own insurance company can deny you medical coverage that you have paid for.
Also, as soon as possible, contact an experienced accident lawyer, such as those at Largey Law. Make sure you choose your lawyer well. An experienced attorney can analyze your case and tell you how details you may not find important, such as whether your crash involved trucks, motorcycles or a texting driver, can greatly impact your case.
A reputable lawyer can help you understand insurance and deadlines
Florida is a no-fault car insurance state. That means that a driver who is not at fault, and his or her passengers, are required to seek payment by their own insurance companies for medical bills and lost wages following an accident regardless of who is at fault for the accident. The no-fault law also limits, but does not eliminate, your rights to seek damages from other parties through personal injury claims.
What happens if you do not own a car, and don't have insurance and are involved in an accident, which is not your fault? It is important to contact a knowledgeable law firm who can guide you through the process of opening a claim on your behalf and who will find insurance coverage that is available to pay your bills while you receive the medical care you need. Largey Law, P.A. is dedicated to finding insurance that protects injured people and ensuring that medical bills and lost wages are paid in a timely manner.
Florida also maintains specific laws about uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage. Every motor vehicle liability insurance policy issued in the state must include uninsured/underinsured motorist vehicle coverage equal to its bodily injury liability coverage, unless the motorist specifically rejects that coverage. Often times, uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage is available to injured parties who are unaware that they are entitled to it. If uninsured/underinsured motorist benefits are available, important steps must be taken to make sure that the coverage is secured and protected for the injured party. An experienced auto accident attorney should find all insurance coverage available to their injured clients and protect their right to be compensated by them. The attorneys at Largey Law are experienced in finding uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage and protecting the rights of the injured parties to be compensated fairly for their injuries.
Always remember that time is not on your side. If you want to file a car accident claim in Florida, you must file a lawsuit within four years of the date of the accident. Uninsured/underinsured motorist claims must be resolved within five years or a suit must be filed within that time. Largey Law, P.A. will make sure that your claim will be resolved or a suit will be filed within the time limits allowed by law.

Wrongful Death Cases Help Families Manage Following the Unthinkable
Compensation in the wake of a tragedy helps offset serious costs and future losses
Not all injury victims can speak for or seek justice on their own behalf. In extreme cases, negligent acts cause the accidental deaths of innocent people. If your family has suffered such a tragic loss in the Central Florida area, reach out to the attorneys at Largey Law, P.A. No amount of money can bring your loved one back but compensation can help offset large expenses, lost income, and the unnecessary and extreme pain and suffering experienced by survivors.
What exactly is wrongful death?
At its most basic, wrongful death is loss of life caused by the willful or negligent act of another person or persons. In other words, it is a personal injury claim where the injury was severe enough to prove fatal.
Can I bring a wrongful death action?
Most injury cases are brought by the injured party. In a wrongful death case, the suit must be brought by a surviving party on behalf of the deceased.
In Florida, Wrongful Death Statute 768.21 clearly outlines who may bring a wrongful death action in the wake of a fatal accident. These parties include:
-Parents of the deceased
-Surviving spouse of the deceased
-Children of the deceased
However, you may not bring a wrongful death action if:
-You are the parent or adult child of a decedent with a surviving spouse
-You are an adult who lost a parent through medical negligence
-You lost an adult child due to medical negligence
-Time is against you. In the state of Florida, you have only two years from the date of death to file a wrongful death claim.
Further exclusions may preclude your wrongful death action. For example, some federal laws provide immunity from wrongful death claims to defendants in cases involving railroad collisions or in product liability cases involving certain medical devices.
What kinds of compensation can be recovered?
If you are eligible to file a wrongful death lawsuit, an experienced lawyer can help you recover compensation for:
-Loss of companionship

Putting 19 years of experience at your disposal
Few things can change your life as suddenly and permanently as a serious injury. In the blink of an eye, a negligent act can leave you in serious pain, facing long-term medical care and rehabilitation. Your recovery can incur sizable medical bills just when your injury may prevent you from working. The situation can seem hopeless, but it does not have to be. If you or someone you love has suffered a serious injury, you owe it to yourself to contact a knowledgeable and determined injury attorney in your area to research your options.

Accidents can lead to serious injuries and expensive recovery
Most of us are involved in a car accident at some point in our lives. Many lead to little more than property damage. But any accident, major or minor, can cause serious injuries such as:
-Head and brain injuries, including Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
-Neck and spinal injuries
At Largey Law, P.A. our personal injury lawyers will review your specific accident case and tell you whether you have a valid claim. Florida is a comparative negligence state, which means that you can still receive compensation even if you are partially at fault.
We also advise you as to your legal options given the specific details of your case. Aspects of your case that can affect your choices include:
-Whether a texting or distracted driver was involved,
-Whether your case involved a semi-truck, motorcycle, bicycle or pedestrian
-Whether you seek damages to help you recover from head and brain injuries
-Medical malpractice cases require experienced legal guidance
Doctors and other medical professionals owe a defined standard of care to patients. If you or a loved one suffers an injury because a doctor violated or ignored this standard, an injury lawyer can help you pursue a medical malpractice claim against the negligent party.
Wrongful death cases are tragic
In most personal injury cases that prove fatal, the surviving family members of the victim have the right to file a wrongful death claim. Such cases often prove complicated and follow a unique set of legal protocols. It is critical that survivors seek the help of an experienced and knowledgeable personal injury lawyer.
