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.

Also called a bulging or a slipped disc, a herniated disc is a type of injury that occurs along your spinal column, often in the lower, or lumbar, section of your back. Your spine is composed of vertebrae interconnected with soft, flexible discs that cushion the bone, absorb shock and promote flexibility of the spinal column. A traumatic injury can cause the hard shell of the disc to rupture. The soft contents bulge out, exerting pressure on the surrounding nerves and causing significant pain.

People can experience slipped discs due to normal deterioration over time. A traumatic back injury can also do this type of damage. A slip and fall or a blow to the back can result in tiny cracks where the spongy material bulges through. A rapid, wrenching movement can also create tears and herniation.Once you get a diagnosis, your doctor may recommend short bed rest if your pain is severe. Heat wraps plus pain relievers can help in managing less debilitating pain. Typically, your slipped disc will heal on its own, but it may take several months. During this time, you may experience numbness in your lumbar region and your legs, sciatica, and loss of strength in affected areas.

In the above scenario, your injury was the result of an unsafe staircase in your rental premises. Because your landlords were not proactive in fixing the hazard, they are probably liable to pay for your damages. Not all cases are the same. Whether you were injured at an apartment or grocery store there are many ways you can “slip a disk”. Due to the specific legal requirements, statutes of limitations and variations in state law, your best strategy in such a case is to seek the guidance of a local personal injury attorney.

Legal compensation for a disc injury caused by unsafe premises, a car accident, assault or another action by another party, whether unintentional or on purpose, is always financial. Some of the damages that qualify for compensation include:

  • Medical bills
  • Ambulance charges
  • Loss of wages
  • Loss of future earnings
  • Disability costs
  • Physical therapy costs
  • Loss of consortium with a spouse

In many cases, your experienced lawyer can negotiate a satisfactory settlement with the responsible party without taking your case to court. However, your lawyer should be fully prepared to present your case to a judge if necessary.

When you are blindsided by an injury accident, you need dedicated, conscientious legal help to get the compensation you deserve.


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.
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.
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.
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!
