Chillicothe Ohio Injury Lawyer

As a highly experienced personal injury lawyer serving the needs of the great people of Chillicothe, I have helped countless victims hurt by car accidents, medical negligence, birth injury and work related injuries. Personal injuries such as these are emotionally and physically taxing, and financially damaging to victims and their families. Due to the nature of these injury cases, I strive to develop personal relationships with all of my clients. Malpractice, catastrophic injury and birth injury cases are some of the most complicated cases I handle, and thus, I have learned that communication is essential to success.

Medical Malpractice Personal Injury Cases

If you were treated at Adena Regional Medical Center, or by a Chillicothe area doctor and suffered injury as a result of medical negligence, I will find out what happened and will ensure you receive financial compensation for your injuries. My job as one of the top injury lawyers in Chillicothe, OH is to hold those responsible for your injuries, accountable. I have won tens of millions of dollars for my injured clients

Surgical Complications

Surgical errors during medical procedures can lead to severe injuries. Such complications can result in prolonged pain, increased risk of infection, and the need for additional surgeries. These issues can significantly affect your quality of life. Damage to vital organs, or improper suturing due to medical negligence during surgery, are often the cause of these complications. I have been an Ohio personal injury attorney for more than 40 years and you can trust that I will file a personal injury case against the responsible medical practitioners and their insurance company. If you are in Chillicothe, Oh, I will help you get financial compensation to cover your mounting medical bills and other expenses.

Birth Injuries

Inadequate response to fetal distress during childbirth can lead to conditions such as cerebral palsy in newborns. Cerebral palsy necessitates lifelong specialized medical care and therapies. If your healthcare providers failed to respond promptly to signs of distress, or made errors during delivery, leading to long-term adverse consequences, it can be considered as medical negligence.

Medication Errors

Administering the wrong medication or incorrect dosages can have severe consequences, including organ damage and prolonged hospitalization. Patients suffering from medication errors may experience a range of adverse effects, impacting their overall health and well-being. Medical malpractice can occur when healthcare professionals make mistakes in prescribing, administering, or monitoring medications.

Misdiagnosis of Cancer

A misdiagnosis of cancer can lead to delayed treatment, allowing the disease to progress to a more advanced stage. This delay can reduce the chances of survival and result in extensive and aggressive medical treatment. Misdiagnosis can be attributed to medical malpractice when pathologists or clinicians fail to accurately identify cancer cells or interpret diagnostic tests correctly. This often leads to further mental anguish and expense for Ohio families

Infection from Unsanitary Conditions

Infections acquired due to unsanitary conditions in healthcare settings can result in severe complications. Patients may experience excruciating pain, require extended hospitalization, and even undergo additional surgeries to address the infection’s effects. A case for medical malpractice may arise if healthcare facilities do not maintain proper sanitation standards or when post-operative care is inadequate, leading to infections. If you live or work in southern Ohio, I can help! As my client, you will not only receive my personal attention, but also my cell phone number. Facilities will be held accountable, and I will help obtain compensation to cover the expenses resulting from the infection.

Anesthesia Awareness

Anesthesia errors can lead to a rare but traumatic condition known as anesthesia awareness. Patients experiencing this condition are conscious and aware during surgery, which can cause severe psychological distress, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and long-lasting emotional trauma. Malpractice may occur if anesthesiologists make errors in administering anesthesia, or fail to monitor patients adequately during surgery, resulting in anesthesia awareness.

As an experienced attorney, I’ve helped victims of medical malpractice, accidents, birth injuries and catastrophic injuries in Chillicothe and all over Southwest Ohio more than 40 years. With an office right off of US 35 on Marietta Road, I can meet with you at any time and place that is convenient to you. If you or a loved one was the victim of a medical mistake, you may feel powerless. However, as your personal injury lawyer, I will be your advocate and give you the confidence and support you need to pursue your injury claim.

Birth Injuries

Birth injuries can be devastating, especially when the injury should have been avoided. I am heartbroken when I hear about a child who will have to struggle with an injury because of a doctor’s negligence. An injury to a newborn is so very difficult for the parents. They may not know what to do or who to turn to for help caring for their child. If your child was injured because of someone’s negligence, you need to call me, and I’ll Make Them Pay!®

Cerebral Palsy

Cerebral palsy is a neurological disorder that can occur due to brain damage during birth. This injury can result in motor skill impairments, muscle stiffness, and difficulties with movement and coordination. Individuals with cerebral palsy may require lifelong medical care, physical therapy, and assistive devices. Inadequate fetal monitoring or mishandling of a complicated birth, such as delayed cesarean section, can contribute to brain damage and the development of cerebral palsy.

Erb’s Palsy

This is a condition characterized by weakness or paralysis in the arm caused by damage to the brachial plexus nerves during childbirth. This injury can lead to limited range of motion, muscle weakness, and functional impairment in the affected arm. If excessive force is used during delivery, particularly in cases of shoulder dystocia, it could result in a brachial plexus injury and Erb’s palsy,

Facial Nerve Injury

During birth, facial nerve injuries can occur if pressure is applied to the baby’s face, resulting in facial weakness or paralysis. This injury can impact facial expressions and muscle control. If healthcare providers do not exercise proper care and technique during delivery, it could lead to facial nerve damage.

Fractures and Bone Injuries

Bone fractures and complete breaks may occur during childbirth, especially in cases where forceps or vacuum extraction was used incorrectly or excessively. These injuries can cause pain, functional limitations, and require medical treatment or surgery. Exercising proper caution and skill during instrumental deliveries is vital. Any excessive force could lead to bone fractures in the newborn.

Hypoxic-Ischemic Encephalopathy (HIE)

HIE is a brain injury caused by oxygen deprivation during birth. This condition can lead to developmental delays, cognitive impairments, and lifelong neurological issues. A medical malpractice claim may be pursued if the medical team failed to respond promptly to signs of fetal distress or do not perform a timely cesarean section when necessary. Errors in monitoring and managing the baby’s oxygen supply during labor cause life changing complications.

Brachial Plexus Injury

Injuries to the brachial plexus can result from excessive force during delivery, leading to nerve damage in the baby’s shoulder and arm. This injury can cause weakness, loss of sensation, and limited mobility in the affected limb. Proper procedures need to be followed to alleviate shoulder dystocia, which could lead to brachial plexus injury during birth.

These birth injuries can have a profound impact on an your child’s life, often requiring ongoing medical care, rehabilitation, and therapeutic interventions. In cases where malpractice is suspected as the cause, you need to call me! We will discuss what happened and will pursue a birth injury claim against the responsible healthcare providers and their insurance company. I have the experience and winning track record to make the insurance companies pay!

Injuries From Car Accidents


Whiplash is a common injury in motor vehicle accidents, typically affecting the neck and spine. It can result in neck pain, stiffness, headaches, and even long-term discomfort. Injured individuals may require physical therapy and pain management. You should not try to manage this alone. If you want to win and hold the negligent party accountable for causing the car accident, you need to call me.

Spinal Cord Injuries

Injuries to the spinal cord can have severe consequences, including paralysis, loss of sensation, and mobility limitations. Such injuries can significantly impact an individual’s quality of life, necessitating ongoing medical care and rehabilitation. In Ohio, you are allowed to pursue legal action against the responsible party in a motor vehicle accident, and I can help. My team will hire experts, evaluate potential compensation, gather evidence and work tirelessly on your behalf.

Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs)

TBIs can result from head trauma in car accidents and may lead to cognitive impairment, memory loss, and personality changes. These injuries can disrupt daily life and require extensive medical treatment and rehabilitation. Personal injury lawyers are not created equal. You need an injury attorney in Chillicothe that knows the legal system and has a winning record… you need me!

Broken Bones

Fractures and broken bones are common car accident injuries. They can cause pain, disability, and may require surgeries and extended recovery periods. Holding the negligent party accountable involves pursuing a personal injury claim, especially in cases involving motorcycle accidents or truck accidents, where the injuries tend to be severe.

Internal Injuries

Internal injuries, such as organ damage or internal bleeding, can be life-threatening if not promptly treated. These injuries often lead to hospitalization, surgeries, and a lengthy recovery process.

Psychological Trauma

Car accidents can also lead to psychological trauma, such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety, and depression. These conditions can affect an individual’s mental health and daily functioning.

In all these cases, you deserve to be fairly compensated. Call me for a free consultation to evaluate the circumstances of your accident, and we can discuss your legal options.


I have more than 40 years of experience working with victims of car accidents and medical malpractice. Below is a list of damages you should be seek compensated for:

Medical Expenses

This covers the cost of medical treatment, hospital bills, surgeries, medication, rehabilitation, and any other healthcare-related expenses incurred due to the accident or medical negligence.

Pain and Suffering

This category of damages compensates you for physical pain and emotional distress caused by your injury. It aims to provide compensation for the intangible suffering experienced.

Lost Wages

If you are unable to work because of your injuries, you can seek damages for the income you would have earned during the recovery period.

Property Damage

In car accident cases, this covers the cost of repairing or replacing the damaged vehicle or other property involved in the accident.

Loss of Consortium

These are damages awarded to a spouse or family member for the loss of companionship, care, and intimacy resulting from the injuries suffered by the accident victim.

Wrongful Death

In cases where the accident or medical malpractice leads to a fatality, the surviving family members can seek compensation for the loss of their loved one’s financial support, companionship, and emotional support.

Punitive Damages

These are not intended to compensate the victim, but are meant to punish the at-fault party for gross negligence or intentional misconduct. They are awarded in cases of extreme wrongdoing to deter similar actions in the future.

Emotional Distress

Separate from pain and suffering, this category covers psychological trauma and emotional anguish that resulted from the accident or medical malpractice.

Loss of Enjoyment of Life

This type of damage compensates victims for the loss of the ability to enjoy life’s activities and pursuits, as you did before the accident or medical error.

Rehabilitation and Therapy Costs

Expenses related to physical therapy, occupational therapy, counseling, or any other forms of rehabilitation required to recover from injuries or cope with their consequences.

Future Medical Expenses

If the injuries have long-term or permanent effects, damages can be sought to cover anticipated future medical costs, such as ongoing treatments, surgeries, or medications.

Loss of Earning Capacity

If your ability to earn a living is permanently diminished due to an accident or malpractice, damages may be awarded to compensate for this loss over your working lifetime.

Funeral and Burial Expenses

In wrongful death cases, this includes the costs associated with the deceased person’s funeral and burial.

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
