Personal injury cases are complex and multifaceted, often fraught with emotional and physical distress for the victims involved. Navigating the intricate labyrinth of personal injury requires not just legal knowledge but a deep understanding of the unique nuances that can arise during the course of a personal injury case.

My 40+ years of dedication to this area of law ensures that I am not only well-versed in all facets of personal injury claims, but also deeply committed to alleviating your burden. As your personal injury attorney, I’ll Make Them Pay!®

Types of Cases

As one of the top personal injury lawyers in the Cleveland area, I understand the pain and suffering these situations can cause for injured clients, and I’m dedicated to helping them. It is my job to find out exactly what happened to you or your loved one, and to obtain fair compensation to help with medical expenses and lost wages. Whether you’ve been injured while driving, at work or at a medical facility, call me as soon as possible.

Car Accidents

Many clients reach out to me after being injured in a car accident in the Cleveland area. These accidents often result from negligent drivers, such as those who text while driving, or drive under the influence. I will initiate a lawsuit on your behalf to pursue compensation to help cover medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

The role of Cleveland personal injury lawyers is to hold those responsible for your injuries accountable.

Slip and Fall Incidents

Slip and fall accidents often occur due to unsafe conditions on someone else’s property. This includes conditions such as wet floors, objects, and uneven concrete. These incidents can lead to catastrophic injuries, and I work to hold property owners accountable for their negligence.

Medical Malpractice

When healthcare professionals fail to provide the expected standard of care, patients may suffer severe harm, including catastrophic injuries or wrongful death. In such cases, I help clients seek justice and compensation. We deserve great medical care, and need to hold negligent doctors accountable!

No one should ever go to the hospital and be a victim of sub standard medical care.

Product Liability

Injured clients may file a personal injury claim when they’re harmed by defective products. Manufacturers, distributors, or retailers may be responsible for the injuries resulting from their negligence. It is my goal to ensure proper product safety standards are adhered to by all companies, before sending their products to market.

Workplace Injuries

Worker’s compensation claims occur when employees suffer injuries due to unsafe work conditions or employer negligence. I have helped injured workers in the Cleveland area pursue compensation to cover medical bills and lost wages for more than 40 years. If you were hurt while performing your job, call me to discuss your case free of charge..

Dog Bites

Dog owners have a responsibility to control their pets. When a dog bite occurs due to a owner’s negligence, you deserve compensation for the physical and emotional trauma you experienced.

Nursing Home Abuse

Claims of nursing home abuse can result in horrific injuries or even death among elderly residents. I advocate for the rights of my clients and hold negligent facilities accountable. Many elderly residents cannot speak up against the abuse they have suffered, but I certainly will!

Pedestrian Accidents

Negligent drivers who fail to yield the right of way, or ignore crosswalks can cause serious harm to pedestrians. Texting while driving and driving under the influence are primary causes of pedestrian accidents.

Construction Accidents

Workers on construction sites face a multitude of risks, especially when inadequate safety measures or equipment failures occur. Injured workers may need to seek worker’s compensation benefits. Unfortunately, it is not easy to obtain the financial help you deserve to cover medical expenses and lost wages. Your chances for success are far greater with me in your corner, and I’ll Make Them Pay!®

Each of the above named situations can be incredibly challenging for the injured clients I represent. It’s my mission to provide understanding and heartfelt legal support, ensuring you receive the compensation needed and deserve to move forward after enduring these hardships. Whether it’s through injury claims or worker’s compensation, I’m here to help my clients in the Cleveland area seek justice and relief from the consequences of someone else’s negligence.


In personal injury cases, there are various types of damages that you can pursue to aid in your recovery and protect your best interests. Each type of compensation serves a specific purpose in helping you rebuild your life after an injury. Here’s a list of such damages and why they are crucial:

Medical Expenses

Compensation for medical bills is essential as it covers the costs of treatments, surgeries, medication, and therapy you may require for recovery. This ensures you can access the necessary medical care without financial burden.

Lost Wages

Receiving compensation for lost wages is vital because it helps to maintain financial stability while you are unable to work. This ensures your financial well-being is not jeopardized due to the injury.

Pain and Suffering

Pain and suffering damages acknowledge the emotional and physical distress you probably experienced because of your injury. This compensation is crucial for emotional support and acknowledging the trauma caused by the injury.

Property Damage

In cases involving damage to personal property such as a car accident, compensation for property damage is necessary to repair or replace the damaged items.

Rehabilitation Costs

Rehabilitation costs are essential to aid in the recovery process. This includes physical therapy, occupational therapy, and other forms of rehabilitation that help you regain your quality of life.

Future Medical Expenses

Anticipating future medical needs is crucial for catastrophic injuries. I work with experts who help to calculate the future medical expenses you may incur. This ensures that you can continue to receive necessary treatment and surgeries without financial strain.

Emotional Distress

Emotional distress damages are crucial for providing emotional support by acknowledging the psychological impact of the injury, and helping you cope with the mental trauma.

Wrongful Death Damages

The loss of a loved one is devastating. In cases of wrongful death, compensation helps the surviving family members with funeral expenses, loss of financial support, and emotional support during this challenging time.

Loss of Consortium

This damage type compensates for the loss of companionship and support that the victim’s family members may experience due to the injury.

Punitive Damages

In cases where the negligence of other parties was particularly egregious, punitive damages may be awarded. These damages serve as a deterrent to prevent future similar actions by those at fault. In cases of medical malpractice and product liability, punitive damages are especially important.

Workers’ Compensation

For workplace injuries, workers’ compensation benefits are essential to cover medical bills and lost wages, ensuring that the injured workers interests are protected.

Insurance Claims

Pursuing insurance claims is essential to ensure the insurance companies fulfill their obligations to cover the financial burdens the injury caused and providing the necessary support for your recovery.

In personal injury cases, obtaining compensation for these damages is essential to help you rebuild your life, access the necessary medical care, and receive emotional support. These damages aim to address the physical, emotional, and financial consequences of the injury, ensuring that your best interests are safeguarded throughout the recovery process. I am a highly experienced personal injury attorney, and I’ll Make Them Pay!®

I’m Experienced Working With Insurance Companies

Hospitals and insurance companies will try to outlast and outspend their legal opponents. I have the means necessary to fight for you as long as it takes. I cover every cost associated with your case, so you don’t have to worry about money while we’re pursuing your claim. Additionally, I only get paid if your case is successful.

Navigating the complex world of injury claims, particularly in Cleveland, OH, often involves a challenging and sometimes adversarial relationship with insurance companies. It’s important to understand the difficulties that can arise when dealing with these companies and how the expertise of a Cleveland personal injury lawyer like me can greatly benefit you, the personal injury victim.

Insurance companies, while designed to provide financial support in times of need, primarily aim to minimize their own financial liabilities. Their primary goals include minimizing payouts, protecting their bottom line, and ensuring their shareholders’ interests. This can lead to a situation where they may attempt to undervalue or deny legitimate claims, leaving injured individuals without the compensation they deserve.

My extensive experience as a Cleveland personal injury lawyer dealing with insurance companies is an invaluable asset to you. Having spent more than 40 years working in personal injury law, I’ve encountered a wide range of tactics employed by insurance companies to reduce payouts, particularly in cases involving car accidents. I understand their strategies and know how to effectively counteract them to ensure that you receive fair and just compensation.

One of the critical aspects I will address on your behalf is the consideration of future medical bills. It’s important to account for your long-term personal injury needs, including ongoing medical treatment and potential surgeries, as these costs can be substantial. My team of experts allows me to assess the full extent of your medical requirements and ensure that the insurance company covers these expenses adequately.

Additionally, I understand the importance of recovering lost wages for personal injury victims. In the aftermath of an accident, it’s common for individuals to miss work due to injuries, which can result in financial hardship. My team and I will work diligently to calculate and seek compensation for your lost wages, helping you maintain financial stability during your recovery.

Moreover, my experience as a Cleveland personal injury lawyer allows me to negotiate with insurance companies from a position of strength, compelling them to take your case seriously and recognize the gravity of your injuries. Should they refuse to cooperate or engage in bad faith tactics, I am fully prepared to take your case to court and fight for your rights.

I am here to help you overcome the challenges posed by your injuries and the insurance companies. I will provide you with the support and legal expertise needed to address your personal injury needs, including future medical bills and lost wages.

When a medical mistake changes your life forever, you need financial support to become whole again.

If I become your lawyer, I will aggressively fight for you to get the compensation you need to live as normal of a life as possible. Furthermore, while I’m fighting to get you the compensation you need, I hope to change the way people do things, so what happened to you doesn’t happen to anyone else. 

If you or a family member were the victim of medical malpractice or birth injury, and as a result, suffered serious injury in Cleveland or anywhere in Northeast Ohio, call me today.  As your personal injury lawyer, I’ll be there for you, and I’ll Make Them Pay!®

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

He was able to get me the best deal possible in my court case.

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

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

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
