The law firm of Russell & Lazarus has achieved a 95% success rate in the handling of more than 3,000 personal injury claims since 1998, and in handling over 6,000 claims since 1984. Russell & Lazarus has a reputation of providing outstanding and aggressive legal representation.

Every team member works diligently to insure that personal attention is given to our clients. The firm is committed to being selective when choosing clients. In fact it is part of the firm’s mission statement that the clients are best served through the “…individual attention that can be provided to a select group of clients…” as opposed to trying to compete with other law firms that have a philosophy of “the more clients the better”, who end up representing clients who never get the attention they deserve.

We also come out to see you if transportation is an issue, be it at your home or a hospital. If for some reason we cannot meet your legal needs, we will refer you to a highly respected attorney who we think will best suit your circumstances. In addition, Russell & Lazarus can help with monetary advances, rental car reimbursements, the arrangement of surgical services and transportation needs. And ultimately Russell & Lazarus will also obtain for you or your family member fair compensation for all harm and losses caused by the actions of someone else.

Areas of Practice

  • Auto Accidents
    Automobile accidents involve motor vehicles such as cars, buses, or trucks. The accidents may involve other motor vehicles or could be a single vehicle accident. Negligence of the drivers, a defective part in the vehicle, horrible road conditions may result in injuries.
  • Wrongful Death
    Losing a loved one is both tragic and heartbreaking. The loss of your loved one could also leave you in financial peril. You could obtain compensation in order to assist you financially by filing a wrongful death claim. Generally, you must file a wrongful death claim within two years of the injury or death pursuant to Code of Civ. Pro. §335.1
  • Brain & Spinal Cord Injury
    Injury to you brain or spinal cord can have lasting and devastating effects, often leaving you disabled. Aside from continued medical treatment and care, you may also require additional services to function. Worse, your enjoyment of life could substantially decrease and you could be restricted in your ability to work in your chosen career path.
  • Truck Accidents
    Tired and distracted truck drivers are some of the most dangerous people on the road due to the size and weight of their vehicles. Federal regulations which govern trucks can make accidents even more complicated. We can help navigate those regulations and get you the compensation you deserve when you’ve been injured by a negligent truck driver.
  • Amusement Park Accidents
    Accidents at amusement parks could occur due to the malfunction of equipment or the negligence of another, such as an employee, contractor, or temporary worker. Responsibility may fall on the owner of the amusement park as well as third party contractors or equipment manufacturers.
  • Motorcycle Accidents
    Motorcycle accidents may involve other motor vehicles or could be a single vehicle accident. Negligence of others, defective motorcycle part or even from a defective helmet or other safety gear may result in injuries. Regardless of the cause of the accident, the resulting injuries could be devastating. At Russell & Lazarus APC, our Newport Beach motorcycle accident lawyers ensure that your safety gear meets the legal standards set forth in Veh. Code §27802.
  • Pedestrian Accidents
    Pedestrians are people on foot, skateboard, roller skates, etc., other than a bicycle, and may also include a person of disability using a wheelchair or tricycle for transportation. Pedestrians are at risk of being struck by motor vehicles, bicyclists or trains.
  • Dog Bites
    Pursuant to Civ. Code §3342(a), dog owners are held strictly liable for your injuries if their dog bites you while you are in a public place or lawfully in a private place, irrespective of whether the owner had prior knowledge of the dog’s viciousness.
  • Slips, Trips & Falls
    Property owners, tenants and occupants are obligated to keep the property free and clear of dangers or provide adequate warnings regarding known hazards. These dangers may include liquid or foreign objects on the floor, ice, frayed carpeting, rugs or runners, uneven walkways, etc. Whether sustained injury on public or private property, you may recover compensation.
  • Train Accidents
    Train accidents may be caused by a defect in the train mechanisms, negligence of the operator, malfunction of the railway system, or may involve motor vehicles, bicyclists, pedestrians, and other trains.
  • Elder Abuse
    Unfortunately, it is not uncommon to find our elder population abused by people in a position of trust. In civil suit, elder abuse takes many forms, as defined in Welfare & Institutions Code §15610.07. The people involved could be family members, employees of nursing facilities, or people providing in home care.
  • Catastrophic Injuries
    Catastrophic injuries are usually permanent injuries often leaving you disfigured and/or permanently disabled. The stakes are high since the injuries are so severe and thus, compensations are large. These cases often produce unique issues and require extensive and comprehensive investigation and preparation. Both medical and economic experts are often required to support your case.

Do you have a claim?

If you, a family member, or friend, were involved in an accident and as a result suffered an injury inflicted on your body and/or mind, you may have a personal injury claim. If you have been injured, you’re likely overwhelmed with obtaining medical care and financial support—especially if you cannot work. You may also be dealing with insurance companies who want to settle your claim for very little. Our skilled and experienced team tirelessly fights to help you receive the compensation you deserve.
