San Diego Spine Surgery InjuryLawyer
SPINE SURGERY 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.

How we can help you in your spine surgery injury case
Spinal injuries are amongst the most serious of personal injuries, putting you out of commission for weeks, months, or even years. Depending on the type of spinal injury, you might have limited mobility for the rest of your life. After suffering a debilitating spinal injury, you might be wondering what the average settlement is for a spinal fusion. Like any other personal injury case, the circumstances leading to your injury affect how much money you can get from a spinal fusion surgery lawsuit settlement.
If a vertebrae is broken, the fracture calcifies while that person heals. A spinal fusion is meant to emulate that natural process. This can be done with screws, rods or metal plates, along with cadaver bone or synthetic material. The metal pieces hold the bones together while it heals.Of course, if part of the spine is immobilized, it’s going to change the way the spine moves. Perhaps you will no longer be able to turn your neck or your lower back no longer bends. This change in body mechanics places stress on the vertebrae above and below the fusion, which can cause further degeneration. This unfortunate phenomenon is called the “ladder effect”.
After the incision is made, bone graft is prepared. This is taken either from the patient’s pelvic region or from a cadaver. There are now also synthetic materials to encourage bone growth. This material is inserted between vertebrae and is meant to fuse them together. Rods, screws or metal plates may also be implanted to stabilize the area. Once this is complete, the surgeon will close the incision.
Our lawyers understand even the most perfect person is not perfect, and mistakes and mishaps occur during surgery. Surgical errors can leave a patient paralyzed, damaged emotionaly and physically, and left with mounds of debt and medical bills.
