San Diego Wrongful Death Accident Lawyer
Wrongful Death 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.

WHAT IS A WRONGFUL DEATH CASE?
A civil action brought by the survivors — or the estate — of a person who died due to the negligence or intentional actions of another is called a “wrongful death” case. Each state has a specific set of rules governing wrongful death claims, including rules identifying who can file a wrongful death lawsuit in the state’s civil court system.
The first category permits recovery of damages experienced by the deceased from the moment of the negligent act causing the death, until the time of the decedent’s death. As an example, in the case of a car accident, this would cover the time from the occurrence of the crash until the deceased person’s eventual death stemming from their accident injuries. That could occur hours, or even weeks after the accident. The particular damages in this category might include medical expenses, the deceased’s person’s mental and physical pain and suffering, the deceased’s lost wages, and funeral and burial expenses.
