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.
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.
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.
The Personal Injury Law Practice:
If you have been injured in anyway, in New Zealand or overseas, JML can help ensure you are getting your full cover and compensation entitlements. We can review your ACC file, tell you your rights and represent you at a Tribunal review or a Court appeal. Although we are based in Wellington, we can help you wherever you live in New Zealand. When you are dealing with the Accident Compensation Corporation, it is easy to feel overwhelmed. Because we know ACC law and procedures inside out, we can help you navigate the system and ensure you are getting your full compensatory entitlements.
Our experts can help you with claims/disputes concerning your Lump Sum/Independence Allowance, Weekly Compensation, Cover, Vocational Independence, Surgery, Home Help, Attendant Care, Rehabilitation and many other entitlements. If you have received a recent decision from ACC that you wish to challenge, it is important that you get in touch with us as soon as possible to protect your legal rights. The first step is to download our ACC Application Pack. Complete it, sign the Authority to Act (so that we can access your ACC file) and send the Application Pack back to us. A JML representative will then be in contact with you to properly advise you of the next steps in the progression of your ACC dispute.
