Drunk Driving Accidents

“I have been there so many times before and NOW I will be there for YOU and your family.”
- Tim Misny - The man that “Makes Them Pay!®”

“Please understand that the slogan, I’ll Make Them Pay!® is not a guarantee of payment. Both liability and real damages must be proven with preponderance of the evidence.” – Tim Misny

Drunk Driving Accidents

There is no way to sugarcoat it: drunk driving kills. This year alone, drunk driving will claim the lives of nearly 11,000 individuals. Of these fatalities, over 200 of them will be innocent children under the age of 14. Not only will thousands of people be killed this year because of drinking and driving, many more will also be injured. 800 people today will be hurt in a drunk driving related car crash, leading to 345,000 injuries this year due to people driving under the influence of alcohol.

Police are doing what they can to stop these numbers from climbing, and they will pull over around 100,000 individuals this year who are under the influence of alcohol. That, sadly, is just a mere fraction of the many millions more who won’t get caught. Appallingly, over one hundred million people readily admit that they drink and drive.

Here is the stone-sober truth:

  • Every single day, 30 people will die from an alcohol-related car crash.
  • One in three people will be a victim in an alcohol-related car crash in their lives.
  • Every 48 minutes, another life will be stolen due to drunk driving.
  • Most fatal crashes that happen over the weekend are due to alcohol.
  • Young adults (between the ages of 21-24) are most likely to drink and drive.

Did you know that a drunk driver has, on average, driven drunk 80 times before he gets arrested? That’s unacceptable. As a driver, we all take on a certain amount of responsibility when we get behind the wheel. Everything we do is to help ensure the roads are safe for not only ourselves and our passengers, but all the other motor vehicles on the road. The fact that someone would so flagrantly take these risks and endanger other drivers is an outrage.

A car crash can change lives in an instant. In one second, you’re just minding your own business, trying to get to the store or home. In the next, you could be permanently disabled or even killed. The injuries that can be sustained during a drunk driving accident can be devastating. These can include:

  • Whiplash (neck, chest, and head injuries)
  • Spinal cord injuries (leading to nerve damage and paralysis)
  • Traumatic brain injuries (from concussion to brain damage)
  • Loss of limb
  • Herniated disk (causing pain, numbness, and loss of muscle use)
  • PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder)

Life after a car crash can be confusing, scary, and tense. There’s a good chance you’ll be spending a lot of time at your doctor’s office, doing your best to try and recover as well as you can from your injuries. Meanwhile, you may find yourself unable to work after your accident. If you’re the sole breadwinner in the household, this can make your anxiety and worries even worse. Bills won’t pay themselves, and without income, things can quickly be very stressful.

If you have been in a car accident due to a drunk driver, you need to give me a call right away at 1 (877) 944-4373 for your free initial consultation. You can’t risk waiting, as your time to file a claim is just two years after the date of the collision. For nearly forty years, I’ve represented clients just like yourself who have sustained serious injuries due to a drunk driver, and I’m ready to represent you.

As your lawyer, not only do I want to get you the maximum amount of financial compensation for your pain and suffering, I also want to change any policies that were in place that led to your injury. I don’t want to see anyone else hurting like you’re hurting. I’m not afraid to take on drunk drivers or policy makers head-on; I take on Big Cases with Big Results.

I know this time is very trying for you right now, so I want you to turn to me as your confidant as well as your lawyer. When I take your case, I’ll give you my personal cellphone number. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me 24/7 if you have any questions for me about your case, or you simply need to talk about it. I also don’t want to be the cause of any undue, added stress for you, which is why I’ll come to you to discuss your case. I’ve met clients in their homes, at hospitals, and even at restaurants.

If you’ve been harmed due to the negligence and carelessness of drunk driver, I’ll work tirelessly to get you the restitution you deserve to help you get back on your feet – and I’ll Make Them Pay!®

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
