Tim Misny: Helping Injured Victims in Akron & Canton, Ohio for More than 40 Years

As an Akron-Canton injury attorney, I have two primary goals when representing injured victims, who at no fault of their own, were catastrophically injured:

  1. I want to help every injured victim obtain the financial compensation they so desperately need and deserve, to repair the physical, emotional, and financial damages resulting from their injury; and

  2. I want to effect change in corporate and hospital policies to stop the negligence that all-too-often results in a catastrophic injury.

When someone in Akron, Canton, or other neighboring Ohio communities is involved in a serious car accident, he/she and their entire family want answers to their questions. As your personal injury lawyer, I will do everything I can to be your advocate, and I will take on the insurance companies for you. I have met injured accident victims and their family members at Mercy Medical Center, and even at the scene of accidents on I-77. Wherever you need me, I am there for you.

My office is conveniently located at The T.K. Harris Building in Stark County, right off of Fulton Drive.

I give all of my clients my personal cell phone number because I want them to know I am only a phone call away. When I take your case, your problems become my problems, and I will not rest until I help you and your family members get your lives back.

I have more than 40 years of personal injury law experience, and I have listed below the types of personal injury cases I represent.

Workplace Injuries

Slip and Fall Injury

A slip and fall injury occurs when a person loses their balance and falls on a slippery or uneven surface. This may happen due to a lack of maintenance, leading to personal injury cases, where an employee may slip on a wet floor that wasn’t properly marked with caution signs.

Lifting-Related Injury

This type of injury involves strains, sprains, or herniated discs typically caused by improper lifting techniques or lifting heavy objects. Injury victims may not have received proper training on lifting techniques or may not have been provided with the necessary equipment, such as lifting belts, resulting in personal injury cases.

Machine-Related Injury

These injuries result from accidents involving machinery or equipment, such as getting caught in machinery or being struck by moving parts. Such incidents can occur due to a lack of safety guards or the use of defective products.

Burn Injury

Burn injuries can occur due to exposure to hot surfaces, chemicals, or open flames. Employees may be exposed to hazardous chemicals without proper safety gear or training, resulting in personal injury cases.

Fall from Heights

Falls from heights involve injuries sustained when an individual falls from elevated surfaces like ladders, scaffolding, or rooftops. Such accidents may occur due to a lack of proper safety equipment or inadequate training on working at heights.

Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI)

These injuries develop over time at the job due to repetitive motions, or overuse of certain body parts, leading to conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome or tendonitis. Employees may not have enough work breaks or ergonomic tools to prevent the repetitive strain injury.

Electrical Shock Injury

Shock injuries result from contact with live electrical wires or faulty electrical equipment. Using defective products or inadequate maintenance of electrical systems can lead to electrical shock injuries, and may have be caused by poor maintenance at the facility.

Chemical Exposure Injury

Chemical exposure injuries occur when employees come into contact with hazardous chemicals, leading to skin, respiratory, or internal organ damage. Often times, these injuries happen due to a lack of proper handling procedures or inadequate safety measures.

Fall Object Injury

Many injuries occur when objects or materials fall from shelves or storage areas and strike employees. Poorly stacked items, or improper storage practices can lead to fall object injuries, resulting in personal injury cases.

Vehicle-Related Injury

Vehicle-related injuries involve accidents with company vehicles or while operating equipment such as forklifts or cranes. Inadequate training, lack of maintenance, or the use of defective products in vehicles can contribute to such accidents.

Medical Malpractice Injuries

Surgical Errors

Surgical errors encompass a range of mistakes during surgical procedures, including wrong-site surgery, organ damage, or leaving surgical instruments inside a patient. These errors can occur due to a lack of communication among the surgical team, inadequate pre-operative planning, or the surgeon’s lack of experience.

Medication Errors

Medication errors involve prescribing, administering, or dispensing the wrong medication, dosage, or route of administration, leading to serious health complications. Such mistakes may result from a healthcare provider’s negligence, miscommunication, or inadequate record-keeping.

Misdiagnosis or Delayed Diagnosis

Misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis can have severe consequences, as it may lead to the progression of a medical condition. These errors may occur due to a healthcare provider’s failure to conduct thorough examinations, order necessary tests, or consider a patient’s medical history, resulting in worsened health conditions.

Birth Injuries

Birth injuries encompass a range of injuries that occur during childbirth, affecting the baby or mother. These injuries can result from medical malpractice, such as improper delivery techniques, inadequate monitoring, or failure to promptly respond to complications. Families may face substantial medical bills and long-term care needs.

Anesthesia Errors

Anesthesia errors include administering too much or too little anesthesia, failure to monitor the patient during surgery, or allergic reactions to anesthesia drugs. These errors may occur due to inadequate training, improper dosage calculations, or failure to assess a patient’s medical history.


Infections acquired in healthcare settings, such as hospitals or clinics, can result from improper sterilization procedures, contaminated medical equipment, or inadequate infection control measures. Patients who suffer infections due to medical negligence may face extensive medical bills and complications.

Wrongful Death

Wrongful death can occur when medical negligence leads to a patient’s death. This devastating outcome can be the result of various medical errors, including misdiagnosis, surgical mistakes, or medication errors. Families left with the emotional and financial burden of a wrongful death may turn to a personal injury attorney with years of experience, to seek justice and compensation via wrongful death claims.

Medical malpractice can be frustrating, tragic, and sometimes life-changing. It is important, if you have been a victim, to get the financial compensation that will allow you to recover, and get back to full health. It is also imperative, that the medical professional be held accountable for their actions. In the Akron/Canton area, this is how we, as a community, help to ensure our health and safety at the hospital. Call me today, and I’ll Make Them Pay!®

Car Accidents

Whiplash Injury

Whiplash is an injury to the neck caused by the sudden back-and-forth motion of the head during a collision, often resulting from rear-end accidents that occur in Akron-Canton, Ohio. The impact forces the neck to hyperextend and then hyperflex, straining the neck muscles and ligaments, leading to pain and limited mobility. Personal injury lawyers, like myself, will handle insurance claims and legal action on behalf of the injured victim.

Fractures and Broken Bones

Car accidents can lead to various bone fractures and broken bones in the arms, legs, ribs, or spine. Severity is dependent on the degree of impact. These injuries typically occur in high-speed collisions or side-impact crashes, and they may require extensive medical treatment and rehabilitation.

Head Injuries, Including Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

Head injuries, including TBIs, can result from car accidents, especially when the head strikes the steering wheel, dashboard, or side window. TBIs can have long-lasting effects on cognitive and physical abilities.

Spinal Cord Injuries

Severe car accidents, such as high-speed collisions or truck accidents, can lead to spinal cord injuries, which can result in paralysis or impaired mobility. These injuries may require extensive medical treatment and social security assistance to cover the costs of care and rehabilitation. Victims may also need estate planning to secure their financial future.

Soft Tissue Injuries

Soft tissue injuries, such as sprains and strains, are common in car accidents, particularly in rear-end collisions and motorcycle accidents. These injuries may cause pain, swelling, and restricted movement, often requiring medical treatment and rehabilitation.

Internal Injuries

Car accidents can also lead to internal injuries, such as organ damage or internal bleeding, often resulting from the impact of the collision. These injuries may not be immediately apparent, but require prompt medical attention. Victims of such car and truck accidents may need social security assistance and legal representation to address their medical bills and to ensure proper compensation.

If you’ve been a victim of a car accident in Akron or Canton, Oh, you need to call me for a free consultation. I will help you to understand your rights and options for pursuing compensation, addressing medical bills, and planning for your financial future; including estate planning and social security benefits. I will take care of all necessary documentation, and will go to battle for you with the insurance company to obtain the help you need. I am here for you, and I’ll Make Them Pay!®

Types of Damages

Medical Expenses

In personal injury cases, individuals can pursue compensation for their medical expenses, including hospital bills, surgeries, prescription medications, rehabilitation, and any other healthcare-related costs incurred due to the injury. This financial recovery aims to cover the expenses necessary for the injured party’s recovery, allowing them to obtain maximum compensation for their medical care.

Pain and Suffering

Pain and suffering damages are awarded to compensate the injured person for the physical and emotional distress caused by the accident and subsequent injuries. This type of compensation recognizes the mental and emotional anguish, trauma, and pain experienced by the victim, serving to provide financial relief for their suffering.

Lost Wages and Future Earnings

Individuals can seek compensation for lost wages if their injuries prevent them from working during their recovery period. In addition to recovering past wages, personal injury cases can also address future earning capacity losses for injuries resulting in long-term or permanent disability. This ensures you obtain maximum compensation for the diminished ability to work.

Property Damage

In cases where personal property, such as a vehicle, is damaged in an accident, the injured party can pursue compensation for the cost of repairing or replacing the damaged property. This damage recovery ensures that individuals are reimbursed for the financial losses associated with their damaged belongings.

Loss of Consortium

Loss of consortium damages may be awarded to the spouse or family members of the injured party, compensating them for the loss of companionship, and emotional support. It serves to acknowledge the strain that the accident places on personal relationships.

Wrongful Death Damages

In cases of wrongful death due to negligence, surviving family members can pursue compensation for funeral and burial expenses, medical bills related to the final injury, and the loss of financial support and companionship. These damages aim to provide financial support and closure to the grieving family, while ensuring they obtain maximum compensation for their losses.

Recovery for damages are meant to help you repair your life. When you have been made the victim, and your life has changed because of somebody else’s negligent actions, you need to work with an Akron, Oh. lawyer who has experience, and who cares for your well-being.

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 else.read 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 Misny.read 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 time.read 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 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
