Russell & Lazarus APC personal injury attorneys represent injured victims of accidents, who need help obtaining appropriate treatment and compensation for injuries they have incurred. We have personally assisted over 5,000 clients who have sought our experienced legal services; 95% of whom have had successful outcomes. We know first hand how difficult it can be to deal with the aftermath of a serious accident, especially when you are facing a debilitating injury or the overwhelming struggle to make sense of the tragedy of losing a loved one. We work by way of a contingency contract, which means our clients pay us nothing unless we obtain a recovery on their behalf.
Our compassion and a willingness to work harder and smarter than the opposition insures that we obtain the best possible results for our clients. Our philosophy is simple: Your job is to recover and heal, our job is to do everything else. We are a law firm respected by our opponents, the Insurance Industry and by the Judges. Many of our cases come from the referrals of past and current clients.
How we educate our clients
We help educate our clients and the public at large about their rights, and also about the tactics that insurance companies will use against victims of accidents. Although many injured individuals attempt to settle auto accident claims without retaining a lawyer, it may be advisable to retain an attorney who exclusively handles personal injury claims. A 2004 study entitled “Paying for Auto Injuries” commissioned by the Insurance Research Council, contains statistics showing that insurance settlements paid out on accident claims are 4.8 times higher when a personal injury lawyer is involved in the claim than when an injured individual settles the claim on his or her own. Firm founder, Christopher Russell, has had a similar track record and has such a reputation in handling personal injury claims that he has achieved a perfect 10.0 rating on Avvo.com, the leading on-line attorney rating site, which rates personal injury attorneys primarily as a result of client and peer reviews.
Our team of Orange County personal injury attorneys at Russell & Lazarus urge all victims of accidents caused by others to retain a strong, aggressive, and compassionate law firm. We will be the strength at your side when you need it the most.
