Drownings, Near Drownings & Water-related Injuries.

Californians take advantage of their proximity to water. They participate in water skiing, swimming, boating and a wide variety of other water-related activities. And it’s not just natural bodies of water. Many Californians own pools or use private or community pools.

Unfortunately, with increased water use comes the increased risk of personal injury, including drownings. Many adults and children each year are killed in drownings or severely injured in near drownings. Even when a lifeguard is on duty, unsafe pool or beach conditions can be deadly.

Rave Reviews from
Happy Clients

  • I highly recommend John to anyone as he is honest, prepared, knowledgeable and kind.

    “John Miller was a Godsend to me through a very difficult time. John was able to negotiate a settlement with two parties and give me the ability to be made "whole". I highly recommend John to anyone as he is honest, prepared, knowledgeable and kind. I believe that John truly cares about his clients and these days that stands out. John puts his clients at ease and I found that his advice during negotiations was in my best interest at all times. I am blessed to have had John as my attorney.”

  • He was patient, kind and extremely professional.

    “Mr. Miller represented me on a mold case against a former landlord, and management company. He was patient, kind and extremely professional. Although my case wasn't one of the biggie gold mine type cases that many attorneys are looking for, he treated me with respect, collegiality and was able to help me get a settlement through mediation that seemed to be the best option for the quagmire of my particular case. One should always hold negative reviews on here in perspective: often people think their cases are slam-dunks, but as we all know, the legal system is overly complex and not as straight-forward as we all would like it to be. Often cases don't turn out as we'd like them to, but I felt that Mr. Miller was above board regarding the overall merits of my case and he tried to be realistic as to the outcome. I would recommend him and/or avail of his services again.”
