San Diego Taxi Accident Case Lawyer
TAXI 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.

We're here to help with you're RIDESHARE ACCIDENTS
Normally in a car crash, the at-fault driver is liable for the damages, but if they are working when they cause the accident, their employer is liable. With ridesharing services, the liability isn’t always as clear, which is why you need a knowledgeable personal injury attorney in your corner.
Ridesharing services typically only claim liability when their drivers are actively using the app. If the drivers are logged in but don’t have a passenger in the car, Uber and Lyft both have a modest liability policy in place to cover accidents; however, this coverage simply isn’t enough to cover extensive damages to pedestrians and property. In these cases, you need a ridesharing accident attorney who understands how to successfully make a claim against these companies even when their coverage isn’t adequate.
INSURANCE CLAIMS FOR RIDESHARING ACCIDENTS
As a rule of thumb, ridesharing companies have large liability plans in place, applying to accidents that occur when the ridesharing driver has a passenger in the vehicle. These companies tend to have slightly reduced coverage for accidents that occur when the driver is logged into the app but doesn’t have a passenger. The driver’s insurance applies in other cases. Making ridesharing insurance claims can be complicated, and you may want to consult with a legal professional so they can help you negotiate a fair settlement with the insurance company.
If you’re thinking about making a legal claim against a ridesharing company, you should understand the lawsuit process. Often, you can keep the issue out of court and come to a satisfactory resolution relatively quickly by working with an arbitrator or a mediator. However, in other cases, you need to be ready to go to court to ensure that you are fairly compensated for all the current and future damages you incurred as a result of the ridesharing accident.
