What Do Our Clients Say?

Kayla C.

I was hit by an uninsured driver and didn’t know what to do next. I found Chris online and the rest was such a relief. Paola is also assisting me by handling all of my medical appointments and keeping my case in order. We haven’t settled yet, but we will soon!

Listen up people! By far the best experience I've had with an attorney. Chris and his team really care about your well being to get you medical attention. I had a serious car accident in August 2018. The other party had no insurance or license. Therefore, because I did have uninsured motorist insurance, Mova Law Group was able to leverage my uninsured motorist funds to pay his costs, my medical attention costs and a settlement check to cover additionally expenses which turned out to be 2 times what I thought and I received that check within 7 months. Thank you Mova Law Group.

Katie H.

I got in a pretty bad car accident in July of 2015. I was rear ended so bad that my car was labeled as a total loss. I looked around for a good attorney for a few weeks. After reading reviews, and talking to friends, the name Chris Mova with Mova Law Group came up the most. So, I decided to call him to see if I wanted to hire him. Chris personally talked to me on the phone, explained what my options were and asked me if I wished to meet him face-to-face at his office. I met him at his office a few days later and I decided to hire him. Chris fought hard with the insurance company, they weren't being reasonable in the beginning. It wasn't until he showed them a copy of the lawsuit he planned on filing that they finally decided to pay for my injury. He is as aggressive of a lawyer as I have seen (based on his letters to the insurance company), but yet so friendly and nice with me.

I recently had a case where a large insurance firm denied my claim despite their insured admitting guilt. After contacting Chris, he walked me through the steps I should take which included filing a small claims case. Chris’s quick advice on matters as simple as court room etiquette, posture and deference, I believe made a difference in my case and as a result I won the case. He’s a consummate professional and I will continue to use him for legal consul.

Cruise Ship Accident Lawyers in San Diego

Prior to founding the firm, Chris Movafagh (Aka Chris Mova), was a law clerk at one of the biggest and most prestigious personal injury firms in Southern California where he honed his legal tactics and negotiation skills.

He saw a problem with the firm he worked for and every other big personal injury law firm. Each client was not treated as a human, but rather as a number. The goal of these big firms was to retain as many clients per month as possible and settle as many cases as possible. Chris did not think this was fair to the client because there was always money left on the table for the client. But the big firms would always push their client to accept the lowball offer.

Chris saw this and wanted to make a difference, even if it was small. He wanted to only take on a handful of clients and treat each of his clients like the unique person they are; each with a different story of their pain and suffering. Chris made it his personal goal to hand pick the best team to help him reach his goal of creating the Best Personal Injury Law Firm San Diego has seen.

Today, Chris Mova is well respected across the country for helping lawyers achieve spectacular awards and settlements on behalf of their clients. He coaches personal injury lawyers in other states on how to properly setup a personal injury case, how to negotiate it, and how to litigate it, especially cases involving spinal injury and brain injuries.

If you are interested in having Chris Mova and his staff represent you, please call us now and Chris or one of his hand picked team members will assist you.

We can help with your Cruise Ship Accidents case

Some common cruise ship accidents include slip and falls, falling overboard, fallen objects, dock accidents, swimming pool or water slide injuries, injuries on excursions taken on shore, medical malpractice, and sexual or physical assault.When a cruise ship accident occurs in non-navigable waters in the United States, the cruise ship may be considered a common carrier. This means that it has a heightened duty of care to provide safe transportation to passengers.

Know about Passenger Ticket Contracts and Liability

Most cruise lines put contract provisions in passenger tickets, which severely restrict the amount of time the passenger has to file a lawsuit. There also may be waivers associated with shipboard activities that can cause injury. Finally, the passenger ticket may also have a “choice of law” clause. This clause specifies what law is to be applied in the event of a dispute. The substantive and procedural law that is applied to an injured passenger’s case can dramatically affect the outcome of the case. In deciding whether to uphold these clauses, courts will consider where the wrongful act happened, the domicile of the injured passenger, the cruise line’s allegiance, the place of the contract, the accessibility of a foreign forum, and the law of the forum.

A cruise line may be found negligent if it does not follow this law. Similarly, a cruise line has a duty not to serve passengers alcohol to the point of intoxication and to warn passengers of any dangers that are known or should be known. On most cruise ships, deck officers are aware the ship is entering rough water and should warn passengers about the dangers of standing by a rail during that time.

Once a missing passenger is reported to a cruise line, it has a duty to perform a search and rescue. An inadequate search and rescue or failure to conduct this rescue can be considered
