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 are here to help with your railroad employee injury

An employee must show that he performing work for the railroad at the time of the injury and that his injury was the result of some negligence on the part of the railroad. In other words, the employee must prove that the railroad did not provide the employee with a safe place to work. Thus, it is important to remember that is not like a traditional workers’ compensation case. There is no guarantee that you will receive benefits just because you were injured on the job.

It is required that you report your injury to the railroad as soon as possible. Most railroads have rules requiring injured employees to complete an accident report form. It is important to document any aspect of railroad negligence or fault in the accident report form. You are not required to give any other statement regarding your accident to the railroad claims agent. If the agent attempts to take your statement, you may refuse to provide one. If you chose to give a statement, please contact your union representative or our office for help.

It is important that get the proper treatment for your injuries. You are entitled to choose any doctor to provide medical treatment. The railroad may have you examined by a doctor they select: however, the railroad cannot require you to be treated by the company-selected doctor.

Apply For Sickness Benefits: if you are injured and will be off from work, you may be entitled to sickness benefits from the Railroad Retirement Board. Ask your local union officer or contact our office for the proper forms. The sickness benefits from the Railroad Retirement Board are to help you while you are unable to work, however, these benefits must be paid back out of any settlement or judgment you receive in your case.


It is not required that you have an attorney in order to proceed with a case. However, cases often involve complicated issues not found in ordinary personal injury matters and an experienced attorney can be of great assistance. An attorney experienced with litigation will advise you how to protect your rights and help you deal with the railroad claims agent and their lawyers. Your attorney will evaluate your case based on the nature and extent of your injuries, time lost from work, negligence of the railroad and contributory negligence of the employee. As a result, injured workers who are represented by legal counsel usually will obtain better results than those who are not.

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!
