Steps to Take After You Sustain a Brain Injury

Suffering a serious brain injury can be one of the most devastating experiences in a person’s life. Depending upon the nature of the injury and its severity, a traumatic brain injury (TBI) can have lifelong repercussions including permanent disability. When another party is responsible for the accident in which you suffered a brain injury, it is essential to find out more about holding that party accountable. I want to help you seek the financial compensation you will badly need to manage the effects of your brain injury, and I also want to help you ensure that the negligent party is held accountable. To make sure that you remain eligible to file a brain injury claim, you should take the following steps, if you can, after you sustain a TBI.

Do Your Best to Document the Scene Where Your Brain Injury Occurred 

If you are able to do so—if your injury is not so severe that it prevents you from documenting the scene—take photographs where your accident happened. Be sure to take a variety of pictures from different angles, and at different distances. Whether you sustained a brain injury in a motor vehicle collision or in a serious fall at work, you want to be able to provide detailed visual information about where the accident occurred, and to show how it happened.

You should also make sure to obtain contact information from anyone who witnessed the accident. I may be able to get in touch with those witnesses to provide support for your case.

See Your Doctor as Soon as Possible

You need to get medical assistance as soon as possible. Whether you go to an emergency department or schedule a same-day visit with your general practitioner, you need to have a medical assessment to determine the extent of your brain injury. Your medical records will also be crucial when it comes time to file a claim.

Do Not Wait to Seek Legal Advice About Filing a Lawsuit 

Once you see your doctor, you should get in touch with a brain injury lawyer to learn more about filing a brain injury lawsuit. Under Ohio law, you will only have two years from the date of your injury to file a lawsuit. If you let more than two years pass, your claim will become time-barred and there will be few options for getting the compensation you are owed. But I want to emphasize that you should not wait for two years before you file. The sooner you get in touch with me, the quicker I can gather the evidence necessary to support your claim and to assist you in seeking compensation for your losses.

Call Me for Help with Your Brain Injury Case 

Brain injuries can be catastrophic, leaving injury victims with permanent disabilities and the partial or total inability to work. I want to make sure you seek the financial compensation you deserve and that you have a chance to hold the responsible party accountable. Whether you sustained a brain injury in a car crash, a pedestrian collision, or in a fall, I’ll Make Them Pay!® Do not wait to get in touch with me to learn more about filing a brain injury claim.

Tim has created a highly visible and effective law practice, and despite his decades of experience, he has never once... forgotten why he got into this business in the first place: to help people. He puts his whole heart into his work, and he works hard for everyone he represents. He has a gift for tuning out the noise and tuning into the core of what his clients need, and making it clear he has heard them. As a result, we feel empowered. He is smart, resourceful, creative, positive, and solution-oriented. His abundant energy makes people feel better, stronger, and valued. He loves and promotes his community; he gives back generously, and he always leaves everything better than he found it. Tim is a true man of action, and a man of his word. Could not recommend him more highly.read more

As a young man, I worked at a local garden center. I came from a family that had too many problems to list. I felt I... was never destined to be anything good. I had always wanted to be a police officer since I was a little boy. But, one side of my family told me that I would never be good enough to do it. Anytime I brought it up, they knocked me down until I started to believe that I could never accomplish my dream. One day, about 20 years ago, while working at that garden center, a very tall man came in and asked me to help him select plants. As we walked around the garden center, he struck up a conversation with me. He was very friendly and kind. I was a skinny teenager in dirty blue jeans and a t shirt. This man was dressed very nicely and I was surprised at how nice he was to me. During our conversation, he asked me what I wanted to do with my life after school. I told him that I wanted to be a police officer but many people told me that I’d never make it. I told him how my very own father said I wasn’t smart enough, brave enough, and I was wasting my time. I remember looking at the ground while I explained this to him. The man stopped and got serious. His voice dropped an octave and he looked me dead in the eyes. He pointed his finger at me and told me that I could make anything of my life that I wanted. He told me that it was up to ME to make my life goals come true. He told me to ignore anybody who tells me otherwise. He assured me that if I studied hard in school and never gave up on my dreams that they would become a reality. He told me to say it. I said “I can do it”. In that moment, I thought that if a complete stranger saw something in me, than maybe it could be true.After I helped him through the checkout and he left, many different employees at the garden center asked me if I knew who that man was. I did not. They told me, “That’s Tim Misny!” Once I figured out “who” Tim Misny was, my confidence grew. It was a pivotal moment. One in which steered the rest of my life. His words stuck with me. I worked hard and obtained my Associate’s Degree in Criminal Justice. I was hired by a local Law Enforcement Agency at the age of 21. I was sent to the Ohio State Highway Patrol Academy, which was an extremely tough place to be, to say the least. At the Academy, they try to break those who don’t have a determined spirit. On days I wanted to quit, I remembered Tim’s words. Maybe it was fate, maybe it was random chance.... I’ll never know But, Tim Misny helped me have the confidence and determination that was necessary to be where I’m at today. I’ve been a law enforcement officer for over 16 years. I’ve told this story to many of my coworkers.Tim, you’ll never understand how your words that spring day helped shape my future. Your words enabled me to provide a great life for myself and my family. I’m forever grateful.Mikeread more

Tim has represented me twice, once 30 years ago and again just recently. I was too young to fully appreciate his... expertise when he represented me the first time (as i was a minor who was the victim of an accident - he won for us, incidentally), but I'm old enough and wise enough now to really appreciate how truly great he is. First off, how many attorney's actually give you their cell phone number and actually answer? I would contend very, very few. Secondly, he has a street fighter mentality combined with a sharp legal intellect which makes you immediately think "I'm so glad this guy is on my side." I was really in a bind recently and Tim came through in spades - he is THE person I would call if I were in trouble or needed help - at a minimum he would know who I should talk to and direct me there (he knows his own limits, which is the key to a wise person) - at a maximum he would take on my fight himself and I'd have full confidence in his ability to deliver the best possible outcome for me - he fights for you like you're family - can't say it better than that.read more

I worked as an intern for Tim the summer of 2017 and it was an unbelievable experience both for my career and personal... development. He treats his employees with a level of respect, appreciation and honesty that I've truly not seen anywhere else that I've worked. We've stayed in touch these past few years and I'm still learning from Tim, whether it be the way he sees the world, his career advice or his commitment to his family. He's an honest man who treats people honorably.read more

I don't know much about Tim the lawyer, but I do know about Tim the man. Tim the man befriended me as a youth and gave... me the motivation to excel in school. Tim the man wrote the letter that got me into college and got me a helpful scholarship. Tim the man gave me an internship while in college. Tim the man has been a friend to me for over ten years. He makes himself available day or night whether I need advice or just want to talk about the day. There a lot of stigmas about attorneys (and they are earned) but Tim Misny bucks the stereotype. And if Tim the lawyer is half a good as Tim the man, he will live up to his word, and make them pay.read more
