JOHN MILLER LAW (JML) was founded in 2001 by New Zealand’s leading ACC law expert and former senior law lecturer at Victoria University. John Miller has represented injured people for the last 40 years and is a tireless campaigner for ACC claimants’ rights. He is a sought-after media commentator and author on personal injury law.
JML has represented thousands of clients. We are well known for our effective results in resolving accident compensation disputes from Tribunal Reviews right through to the Court of Appeal. As well as personal injury compensation matters, JML also specialises in Mental Health Law in the Wellington region.
Our egalitarian philosophy inspires a different kind of interaction with our clients. John has been awarded many accolades for his work, including the Millennium Human Rights Award (2000) and Wellingtonian of the Year (2002) for his long-term efforts on behalf of injured claimants. In 2006, Victoria University of Wellington dedicated an annual John Miller Community Service Award for law students demonstrating an outstanding contribution to the community.
Notable wins include:
- New Zealand’s largest civil settlement of $228 million for backdated payments to families of seriously injured claimants to whom ACC has refused to pay full 24-hour care.
- Significant lump sum compensation for work related asbestos victims instead of smaller weekly payments.
- Winning payments for 278 incapacitated pensioners who lost their entitlements when age limits were lowered.
- Winning ACC cover for a mother and son who contracted HIV from their father following an infected blood transfusion.
