Our Accolades



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.

If a loved one is killed by a drunk driver, you or another duly appointed personal representative my file a civil suit for wrongful death on behalf of the loved one’s estate. A wrongful death suit is often a mechanism employed by family members to ensure that those surviving the deceased have some financial stability. Wrongful death suits are a variation on a standard personal injury negligence lawsuit, and generally follow the same road map. Both economic and non-economic damages are available, and some states may allow punitive damages as well. Punitive damages are arbitrary amounts awarded with the sole intent of punishing the drunk driver and deterring future drunk driving incidents. If a driver does injure or kill another person, oftentimes, he or she will not be eligible for bail. The suspect must remain in police custody, to await his or her trail date. During the trail, the suspect will be charged with some form of criminal negligence or involuntary vehicular manslaughter, depending upon the severity of the injuries caused to the other people. He or she may also be sued by the injured people or their families for medical bills and emotional damages.

If you are involved in an accident caused by a drunk driver, and can prove it, then you may claim damages in a civil lawsuit. You may also pursue a wrongful death lawsuit if a family member was killed in an accident caused by a drunk driver.

In order to make your case, you will have to establish the intoxication level of the defendant, prove that this level was too high for safe operation of a motor vehicle, and show that the defendant failed to exercise reasonable care for the public’s safety. Evidence used in such a case will usually include a police report of the incident, witness reports (if available), and expert opinions.The recommended jail time for each case is determined by a jury of the driver’s peers, and also may vary from state to state.
If you were involved in a car accident, particularly if alcohol may have been involved, you’ll most likely need professional legal help. If you’ve been arrested, it’s best to contact a local attorney who can analyze the evidence, scrutinize police methods, and generally advocate for your best interests.
