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.

  • I had so many questions, concerns and he answered every one of them promptly and thoroughly.

    “John Miller is a phenomenal attorney. Mr. Miller went above and beyond what most attorneys do. I had so many questions, concerns and he answered every one of them promptly and thoroughly. I unfortunately was involved in a serious car accident that left me with a lot of medical bills and a ton of stress. When John was assigned to my case he spend endless hours (of his own time) preparing for settlement and then trial. Mr. Miller is very articulate, knowledgeable, kind and dedicated to his clients. I hope to never need a personal injury attorney ever again but if the circumstances ever presented themselves I would want John Miller by my side.”
