“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


Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) are a particularly devastating type of catastrophic injury, and TBIs can happen in almost any type of accident. Generally speaking, TBIs can range greatly in terms of severity, from a mild traumatic brain injury to a severe TBI.

Concussions are one type of mild traumatic brain injury, and they have numerous causes. In many cases, someone else’s negligence or bad behavior is responsible for another person’s concussion. Whether you sustained a concussion while playing sports or after being struck by another motor vehicle in a car crash, you may be eligible to file a claim for compensation.

As a catastrophic injury attorney in Ohio, I routinely represent clients in a wide variety of catastrophic injury claims, and I can help you to seek financial compensation for your concussion.

What is a Concussion? 

According to the Mayo Clinic, a concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury that “affects your brain function.” Concussions typically result from a bump or a blow to the head, and in some cases, “violently shaking the head and upper body also can cause concussions.” Concussions, like other traumatic brain injuries, can result in a loss of consciousness. At the same time, however, it is possible to sustain a concussion without realizing it. The signs and symptoms can seem minor even though you may have suffered a very serious injury.

When you have been in an accident or have been hit while playing a contact sport, it is important to see a healthcare provider to be assessed for a concussion. When a person sustains repeat concussions, research suggests that the person can be at risk of developing chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), which is a degenerative disease of the brain.

 Signs and Symptoms of Concussions

 Signs and symptoms of a concussion can vary depending upon the person, and sometimes it takes hours or even days for signs to appear. When a person does have symptoms of a concussion, it may be weeks or even more before those symptoms begin to go away. The following are examples of frequent signs and symptoms of concussions, according to the Mayo Clinic:

  • Headache;
  • Temporary loss of consciousness;
  • Confusion or fogginess;
  • Amnesia;
  • Dizziness;
  • Ringing in the ears;
  • Nausea and/or vomiting;
  • Slow to respond to questions;
  • Concentration or memory problems;
  • Irritability;
  • Sleep problems;
  • Psychological issues, including depression; and/or
  • Smell or taste disorders.

Statute of Limitations in a Concussion Lawsuit

If you sustained a concussion as a result of someone else’s careless or reckless behavior, you should be thinking about filing a lawsuit. However, you need to know that you only have a limited amount of time to do so. Under Ohio law (Ohio Rev. Code Section 2305.10), most concussion claims have a statute of limitations of two years. This means that you will need to file your lawsuit within two years from the date you sustained the concussion.

Although you might be thinking that two years is a lot of time and that you can wait before you file, let me say this: The longer you wait, the more difficult it can be to gather the evidence we need to prove your claim. Moreover, the sooner you file your lawsuit, the quicker you can be eligible to receive financial compensation to help cover your medical bills and lost wages.

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 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 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 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 more
