San Diego Train Accident Lawyer
Train 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.

How we can help you in your train accident case
Train accident lawsuits are much like other civil claims involving personal injury or wrongful death, except that they may involve many more injured parties than occur in most other kinds of injury suits. A lawsuit begins when a complaint is filed with a court holding jurisdiction over the accident. The train company and their insurers then file a response including any defenses they may have. The parties exchange evidence during a “discovery” period, followed by hearings regarding any pretrial motions. These motions relate to debate over what evidence may be admitted, which facts the parties agree upon, and other preliminary matters. A trial is held, after which a verdict is rendered and, if the railroad is held liable, the amount of damages is set.
Many of the claims arising from train accidents are settled out of court. Train companies and state transit authorities would often prefer to avoid the exposure and negative press that can arise in the course of a lawsuit. Settlement also allows everyone involved to avoid the expense and risk involved in a lawsuit.
Settlement negotiations may take place before, during, and even after a train accident lawsuit is finished. Settlements generally involve an exchange of offers in which the parties propose the amount they think would cover the damages that occurred.
