POLICE CAR 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 POLICE CAR ACCIDENTS CASE

When law enforcement is called to the scene of a car accident, the officer will generate a report on the crash. It will contain important information on the facts of what happened as well as the officer’s impression of who was at fault, among other key issues. You can get the police report for an accident in which you were involved, usually by requesting a copy from the law enforcement agency to which the officer belongs. The officer probably will give you the identification number of the report at the scene, which you will need to make this request. Otherwise, a claims representative at your insurance company may be able to help you get the report.

Understanding a Police Report

A police officer usually will investigate the scene thoroughly so that they can include many types of information in the report. Some of these pieces of information are facts, while others are merely the opinions of the police officer. Examples of factual pieces of information include the date, time, and place of the crash, the identifying information of drivers and any witnesses, weather and road conditions, and areas of the vehicles that were damaged. The police officer also may create a diagram of the accident scene and collect statements from parties and witnesses. By contrast, statements about what caused the collision and who was at fault for it are opinions. These are not binding and may not align with the views of insurance companies, which will undertake their own investigations. Whether a police report is admissible in court in a car accident case can be a complicated question. The answer may depend on the rules of evidence in your state. A police report may fall within the definition of hearsay, which is not admissible. Generally consists of an out-of-court statement introduced to prove the truth of the statement. In some states, however, there is an exception for public records or business records when a statement otherwise would be. This may cover a police report or parts of it.

If your case proceeds in small claims court, you probably will be able to use the police report. Small claims courts apply a much more lenient standard for admissibility of evidence than do regular courts.

DISAGREEING WITH A POLICE REPORT

Police officers are human and can make mistakes. If you feel that the police report contains a factual error, you might be able to get the report changed. For example, if the police officer misstates the vehicles that were involved or the intersection where the crash occurred, you can send evidence of the error and the correct information to the law enforcement agency that generated the report. They should change the report if the evidence is sufficiently clear.

HOW TO PICK THE RIGHT LAWYER?

When you are in Modesto and face such unwanted accident, you need to contact immediately a well-reputed accident injury attorney who has enough expertise to handle such cases.

Don’t try to resolve these cases yourself by claiming directly with other party’s insurance company as there are many risks of not getting enough compensation for such cases.

A good injury attorney will help you to get sufficient compensation from the other party or their insurance company as he has enough credentials to handle such cases.

WHAT DO OUR CLIENTS SAY?

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!
