Tim Misny: Injury Lawyer Cleveland

How I Work

Meet with Me

I am happy to meet you and your family at a time and place that is most convenient for you. Over the past four decades, my clients have asked to meet me at their home, a hospital, a funeral home, and even at a grave site. If you need me, I’ll be there.

Communicating with Me

As I have mentioned, you will meet with me personally, and if I agree to take your case, I will give you my direct cell phone number and you can call me at any time. Unlike other personal injury lawyers, I understand your questions and concerns may not occur between 9 am to 5 pm, and that is why you’ll have an open line of communication with me seven days a week. . In addition to being as near to me as your telephone, I am happy to meet with you face to face whenever the need arises.

Legal Process

I understand that facing a personal injury claim can be an incredibly challenging and overwhelming experience for injury victims and their families. That’s why working with an experienced lawyer like myself, is so crucial in ensuring a successful claim. Most importantly, I will support you step by step through this difficult time.

With more than 40 years of legal experience in many practice areas, I have a compassionate understanding of the unique circumstances you are facing. During your free consultation, I will take the time to listen to your story, answer your questions, and provide you with an honest assessment of your case. This not only helps you understand your legal options, but allows me to understand how to best help you.

I will guide you through the entire legal process. Personal injury claims can be complex, involving a web of laws and regulations. I will be there to answer your questions, ensuring you have a clear understanding of what’s happening and what to expect.

Organizing the vast amount of information involved in a personal injury claim is not easy. I will take on this responsibility for you. I will gather and organize all necessary evidence, including medical records, police reports, witness statements, and more, to build a strong case on your behalf. This not only streamlines the process, but also ensures no critical details are overlooked.

Dealing with insurance companies can be a daunting task, especially when they’re focused on minimizing their financial responsibility. I can handle all negotiations and communication with the insurance companies, protecting your rights and ensuring you are not taken advantage of. My experience allows me to negotiate effectively and work towards securing the compensation you deserve. My personal injury law firm works with a team of experts who will calculate and determine what you deserve to paid for your injuries.

In addition to fighting for financial compensation, I understand that personal injury cases often result in significant emotional and physical trauma. My goal is to help you put your life back together. Whether you’ve been injured in a car accident or you’re dealing with a wrongful death case, I will be your advocate.

Representing the great people of Cleveland for more than 40 years, I know the legal system and how to negotiate with the insurance companies to obtain the most compensation possible. Call me today for a free case evaluation, and I’ll Make Them Pay!®

Types of Injury Cases

Car Accident Injury

Victims of car accidents suffer from a wide range of injuries, such as whiplash, fractures, internal injuries and head trauma. These injuries cause pain, emotional distress, and financial burdens. Treatment may involve ongoing medical care, physical therapy, surgery, and/or chiropractic care.

Slip and Fall Injury

Slip and fall accidents can occur at any time and in various settings, such as in stores, workplaces, or public places. Hazardous conditions like wet floors or uneven surfaces are often to blame. These accidents can lead to broken bones, sprains, or back injuries and head injuries. Victims may face physical limitations and emotional trauma, requiring medical treatment such as surgery, rehabilitation, or psychological counseling.

Medical Malpractice

When healthcare professionals make errors in diagnosis, treatment, or surgery, patients may suffer severe consequences and even a wrongful death. Injured victims may require corrective surgeries, ongoing medical care, and physical therapy, while also coping with the emotional distress of medical malpractice.

We must hold medical professionals responsible and accountable for their negligence, to ensure the best possible care for everyone in our community.

Product Liability

Injuries caused by defective products can range from burns and lacerations to more severe injuries that can affect a person’s quality of life. For instance, a faulty appliance may cause severe electrical burns, or electric shock, leading to extensive medical treatment and rehabilitation.

I am here to ensure you are compensated for your injuries, but I also want to give consumers peace of mind knowing what they buy will operate without issue. Holding manufacturers accountable for their failures is how we ensure quality of product.

Dog Bite Injury

Dog attacks can result in severe injuries, particularly to the face, limbs, or hands. These injuries often require reconstructive surgery and psychological counseling to help victims recover physically and emotionally.

It is crucial for dog owners to train and socialize their dogs, so they are comfortable around people they know and those they do not know. Most often, the victim is not to blame for the bite, but rather the blame falls on the dog owners.

Construction Site Injury

Construction workers may face injuries due to falls, heavy machinery accidents, or exposure to hazardous materials. These injuries can lead to long-term disabilities and may necessitate surgeries, physical therapy, and vocational rehabilitation to help them regain their livelihoods.

Before going to work at a construction site, it is important to make sure the site is safe and all workers are properly trained.

Wrongful Death

Wrongful death cases arise when someone’s negligence or intentional actions lead to the death of another person. Families of the deceased often suffer emotional and financial hardships, seeking compensation to cover funeral costs, lost income, and the pain and suffering of their loved one.

Nursing Home Abuse

Elderly or vulnerable individuals in nursing homes may become victims of abuse or neglect, leading to physical injuries like bedsores, malnutrition, or even fractures. These injuries can severely impact the well-being of the elderly residents, often requiring medical treatment, rehabilitation, and emotional support.

Mistreatment of our elders, in any fashion is unfathomable and unacceptable. When entrusted to care for a person who is unable to care for themselves, the nursing home must provide proper standard of care. Holding them accountable for any form of abuse or neglect, is absolutely necessary.

No one should be afraid of their caregivers, especially the young and the old. It breaks my heart and makes me incredibly angry. The nursing home does not want to deal with an angry Tim Misny!

Birth Injury

Birth injury cases involve harm to an infant or mother during childbirth due to medical negligence or medical errors. These injuries can vary in severity, from minor injuries to life-altering conditions such as cerebral palsy or brachial plexus injuries. Birth injuries can significantly affect the child’s quality of life, leading to life-long physical disabilities and the need for ongoing medical care, rehabilitation, and specialized therapies to support their development.

Few circumstances compare to the devastation of a child who will struggle for the rest of their life because of the negligence of a medical professional. We have great healthcare in Cleveland, and to keep it great, we must ensure those whose mistakes and harmed a mother or child are held accountable.

Motorcycle Accident Injury

Motorcycle accidents can result in severe and life-threatening injuries due to the limited protection afforded to riders. Injuries may include fractures, road rash, traumatic brain injuries, and spinal cord injuries. Motorcycle accident victims often require immediate medical attention, surgeries, and extensive rehabilitation to recover.

I have a wealth of experience in many different areas of personal injury law. If you or a loved one has been a victim, and need legal representation, you need to call The Law Offices of Tim Misny and I’ll Make Them Pay!®


Medical Expenses

Medical expenses include the costs of hospitalization, surgeries, doctor’s visits, prescription medications, physical therapy, and any other healthcare-related costs. These damages are essential, because they cover the treatment and care necessary for the victim to regain their health and mobility.

Lost Income

Damages for lost income encompass the wages or salary the injured person could not earn due to their injuries. This compensation is vital to ensure individuals and their own family do not suffer financially because they are unable to work. Damages will help to cover everyday expenses, such as rent or mortgage payments, utility bills, car payments, groceries and more.

Pain and Suffering

Pain and suffering damages account for the physical and emotional distress endured by the injured person. Mental anguish, trauma, and reduced quality of life is recognized and awarded. Monetary compensation for pain and suffering recognizes the intangible but very real toll the injuries have on the individual and his or her family.

Property Damage

In cases of vehicle accidents involving property damage, compensation covers the repair or replacement of the damaged vehicle and other personal property. This is important to restore the victim’s ability to commute or maintain their daily life.

Loss of Consortium

Loss of consortium are damages awarded to the injured person’s spouse or family members for the loss of companionship, support, and love due to the victim’s injuries. These damages acknowledge the strain the injuries can place on family relationships, and the need for support during the recovery process.

Future Medical Expenses

Some injuries require ongoing medical treatment, surgeries, or therapies beyond the initial recovery period. Compensation for future medical expenses ensures that the injured person can access the necessary care to improve their health and well-being for the long term.

Loss of Enjoyment of Life

This type of damage recognizes the impact the injuries have on the victim’s ability to engage in activities they once enjoyed. It compensates for the diminished ability to participate in hobbies, sports, and social activities.

Punitive Damages

If negligence or intentional wrongdoing occurred, punitive damages may be awarded to punish the responsible party so that the conduct is not repeated in the future. These damages serve as a deterrent and may help to prevent others from acting negligently.

Wrongful Death Damages

In wrongful death cases, damages are sought by surviving family members to cover funeral and burial expenses, medical bills related to the deceased’s final injury or illness. They may also include the loss of financial support, companionship, and guidance. These damages help surviving family members cope with the financial and emotional aftermath of a loved one’s untimely death.

You Need To Call Me

Financing Your Case
You never have to take out your checkbook. I work on a contingency basis which means my compensation based on a percentage of your recovery. I pay all of your case expenses such as filing fees, expert witness fees, accident reconstructionist, deposition services, to name a few. These cases get very expensive very quickly, but I spare no costs in obtaining expert testimony in the preparation of your claim. The bottom line is that your decision to pursue a legal claim is a no-lose proposition. If your case is not won, you will not pay a single penny.

Making Them Pay
In any personal injury case, there are two components. The first is determining liability— who is responsible, and was it negligent—meaning, did they breach the duty of care owed to another person? The second component is damages—what kind of compensation are we talking about? There may be lost wages, and even the loss of future earning capabilities. Often, medical bills and the cost of future medical care can be staggering. It is also important to consider the loss of enjoyment of life. Every situation is unique and must be considered individually.

Both liability and damages must be proven with preponderance of the evidence, and often, the market value of someone’s lost earning potential can be a very significant number.  I employ nationally recognized experts to prove my cases and put a number on lost income potential.  Then I’ll Make Them Pay!®.

I hire experts in accident reconstruction, vocational rehabilitation, engineering, and other types of others. My medical resources include experts in physical, internal, orthopedic, neuropsychological, prosthetics, orthotics, and psychiatric medicine.

Let’s talk
Do you think you may have a case? Call me and we’ll discuss your situation at no cost. I will do everything possible to obtain the highest compensation you deserve.

It really comes down to what people say and do when they don't think anyone that matters is listening or they'll get... anything in return.There's the Tim Misny you see on the billboards and on TV, but there's another Tim Misny that I know up close and personal.The Tim Misny I know is genuinely passionate about helping the hard working little folks who get pushed around the big folks. He actually, really honestly cares about people who run into bad luck at no fault of their own. Tim has quietly, out of the sight of cameras and with no fanfare shared generously with the marginalized in our society; single moms, Veterans and others without expecting anything in return.He calls them like he sees them and you wouldn't want to take your troubles to anyone more

Mr. Misny is the best! I am a 27-year-old single mother, and I am finishing law school in May at Cleveland-Marshall... College of Law. When I found myself jobless during the height of the pandemic, I knew I needed help. Going into the legal profession, I wanted to be JUST LIKE Mr. Misny because I knew he was the most successful attorney in the industry. I called him up one day just for the hell of it to see if there was anyway he could help me. I never thought such a big name/reputation like him would respond to me. However, when he learned of my financial situation he PERSONALLY called my cell phone within 5 minutes of my email. Not only has he helped me secure employment, but he continues to teach me every single day what it takes to be the BEST lawyer in the legal profession. I am forever thankful for Mr. Misny. He changed my life. He continues to inspire me every single day, and I am so proud that he took me under his wing and is my mentor. He is the most intelligent, kindest, caring attorney I have ever met, and he is giving me the tools I need to be the most successful lawyer I can be o give my four-year-old son, Gregory, the life he deserves. THANK YOU MR. TIM MISNY. I owe my entire future legal career to you because if you didn't take the time out of your busy day to call me that day and help me when no one else would, I would not have been able to stay in law school. You change lives every single day. Keep being you Tim. There is no one like Tim more

I met Tim 6 years ago when he was working with my mother. Since then we were able to stay in touch and build a... relationship. I reached out to Tim recently about an opportunity and he was able to connect the dots and help me with this. During this process he gave me his direct number to contact him if need be. If you are in need of any sort of help, I would recommend Tim every more

Tim is hands down the best lawyer in town. He was able to guide me through the legal process and keep me informed at... all stages. Which allowed me to not stress and focus on life. He was able to get me the best deal possible in my court case. One thing that blew me away is that he gave me his direct cell number and answered anytime I had a question which is rare with most lawyers. 100% Misny is the guy!

If I could reach into the sky just to pull more than 5 stars down for a rating I would! I have used other lawyers in... the past and it was such a pain to reach them when I needed them. Tim is in all honesty there for you. He gave me his personal phone number, and at anytime or any day he answered. If I had to leave a message I could count to 10 and he would already be calling me back. He also was willing to talk on the weekends! He didn’t just forward me to an impersonal automated system or a person with no experience. I will NEVER use another person for legal advice. He’s gracious enough to give me guidance whenever I have a question. No matter how complex. This may sound like an advertisement but I assure you this man was more in touch when I had an issue than my own family. A reasonable and caring family man who will MAKE THEM PAY!Thank you Timread more

I've had the pleasure of getting to know Tim personally over the past 2 years. Beyond him being an incredible lawyer &... 'Jack of all trades ' he is an amazing friend. One thing I love most is that he is family oriented & always making quality time for his loved ones. He inspires me to be a great role model &father figure one day. Tim loves nature & shares the true beauty of nature with how he raises his kids. From biking through trails & having his kids learn how to nurture the family garden - he teaches valuable lessons on how to appreciate the world we live in. I know that Tim is just a phone call away & always urgent to responding no matter the situation. He has given me some of the greatest advice & continously throwing positive energy my way!

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
