Personal Injury Lawyer in Middleburg Heights, Ohio

Middleburg Heights Injury Lawyer

For more than 40 years, I’ve represented injured victims throughout the state of Ohio, including the men, women and children of Middleburg Heights! Helping clients is my passion, and recovering millions for my clients has been an absolute honor.

As a Personal Injury Lawyer, I Have Two Very Specific Goals for Every Injured Client I Represent:

  • I want to obtain a fair and generous settlement for my clients, to compensate them for their personal injury needs; and

  • I want to change the way people think and behave, so the type of accidents suffered by my clients never happen to anyone else.

In order to accomplish these goals, I use my experience and financial resources to battle insurance companies who are trained to prevent you from getting the compensation you are entitled to.

Middleburg Heights, Ohio Personal Injury Issues

Listed below are examples of cases I have worked on during my career. As your personal injury attorney, I will find out what happened, and hold negligent parties accountable. As such, you will recover damages for the injuries you’ve suffered to help with medical bills, lost wages, and the physical and mental therapies you may need to help you recover.

Car Accident Injury

Car accident injuries can range from whiplash and broken bones, to traumatic brain injuries. These injuries often occur due to reckless driving, distracted driving, or failure to obey traffic rules. For example, a driver who is texting while behind the wheel may collide with another vehicle or pedestrian, resulting in severe injuries.

I will help you secure compensation to cover medical expenses, car repairs, lost wages and possibly more. This will help you access the necessary medical care and support during your recovery period, ensuring you can focus on healing without financial stress.

Slip and Fall Injury

A slip and fall can cause broken bones, sprains, or head injuries. These injuries typically stem from hazardous conditions such as wet floors or poorly maintained premises. If for example, you slipped on a wet supermarket floor because there was no caution sign, and then suffered injuries, you need to call the Law Offices of Tim Misny today!

Personal injury lawyers like myself, work to obtain compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering, and any lost income during your recovery. This will assist you in covering medical costs and providing financial stability while you heal and rehabilitate.

Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice cases occur from the negligence of healthcare professionals. This may include misdiagnosis, failure to diagnose, surgical errors, or medication mistakes. For instance, a surgeon’s error during an operation, such as removing a wrong kidney, may result in severe complications or even death.

We will seek damages to cover ongoing medical treatment, rehabilitation, and any future care necessary to restore your health. You need the resources required to access proper medical attention and support during your recovery journey.

Workplace Injury

While on the job, you may be hurt due to an unsafe work environment or employer negligence. As an example, a roofer may fall to the ground and suffer a traumatic brain injury because of knowingly faulty safety equipment provided by his/her employer/

You deserve workers’ compensation benefits to cover medical expenses and lost wages while you recover from your injuries. This will allow you to focus on healing and regaining your strength without worrying about financial burdens.

Product Liability Injury

Product liability injuries can result in burns, choking hazards, or severe allergic reactions caused by defective products or inadequate product warnings. For instance a faulty kitchen appliance severely burns you during use., and you suffer a severe allergic reaction because a food product was improperly labeled.

I will help you pursue compensation from the manufacturers and distributors of the products to cover medical costs and any lasting impact the injury may have on your life.

Dog Bite Injury

Dog bites may result in tissue damage, broken bones, infections, scarring, and emotional trauma due to the negligence of the dog owner, or failure to control their pet. An unleashed and aggressive dog may attack unprovoked, which can be especially tragic for a child.

In such cases, the negligent party must be held accountable and compensate you for medical expenses, therapy costs, and any emotional distress you experienced. Accessing medical treatment, therapy, and support to recover physically and emotionally can be expensive.

Creating Change

While serving the Middleburg Heights community, I want to create change to ensure a safe environment for everyone. Holding people accountable for their actions lessens the chance of a repeat occurrence.


Pursuing legal claims against negligent parties, sends a strong message that irresponsible behavior will not be tolerated. This serves as a deterrent to others, encouraging medical professionals, companies, and individuals to act more responsibly, and to take the necessary precautions to avoid causing harm to others.

Accountability and Justice

Holding people liable ensures they are held accountable for their actions or inactions. It provides a sense of justice to the victims, as they see that the responsible party faces consequences for their negligence. This accountability promotes a sense of fairness in the community, fostering trust in the legal system and encouraging people to act responsibly.

Preventing Recurrences

When parties face legal consequences for their actions, they are motivated to rectify their behavior to prevent similar incidents from occurring in the future. Medical professionals may review their procedures, companies may enhance safety protocols, and individuals may become more cautious, all contributing to reducing the likelihood of future injuries. This makes our community safer.

Awareness and Education

High-profile personal injury cases often raise public awareness about potential hazards and risks. As these cases are publicized, they serve as educational opportunities for both the general public and professionals in various fields. The increased awareness can lead to discussions, policy changes, and safety improvements that benefit the entire community.

Encouraging Responsible Practices

By seeking compensation for the victims, you promote a culture of responsible practices. Companies and professionals will understand that cutting corners, or neglecting safety measures may result in substantial financial and legal consequences. This motivates them to prioritize safety and responsible behavior.

Supporting Victims

By representing victims of personal injury, I provide them with a voice and the opportunity to seek justice and fair compensation for the harm they have endured. This support empowers victims to navigate their recovery process, both physically and emotionally, and fosters a sense of community care.

Changing Policies and Regulations

In some cases, personal injury lawsuits can lead to changes in policies and regulations. As evidence emerges during the legal process, it can reveal systemic issues that require attention. Advocating for my clients can lead to improved safety standards, updated regulations, and better protection for individuals in the future.

As a Successful Attorney, I Know How to Deal With Insurance Companies

As a lawyer with a specialization in personal injury cases, I possess a unique skill set that enables me to work with insurance companies and advocate for the maximum compensation possible. Insurance companies are designed to minimize their financial liabilities and maximize profits, which often means they aim to settle claims for as little compensation as possible. My expertise in personal injury law equips me to navigate the complexities of these cases and employ various strategies to secure fair compensation for my clients.

In-Depth Knowledge

I have a long history of successfully handling personal injury lawsuits. With a comprehensive understanding of the legal nuances, precedents, and regulations related to such claims, I can help you. This knowledge allows me to build strong cases supported by solid evidence, compelling insurance companies to take your claim seriously.

Valuation Expertise

Determining the value of an injury claim involves an assessment of various factors, such as medical expenses, lost earnings, pain and suffering, and potential long-term injury-related issues. I work with a team of experts to evaluate the worth of your case to ensure your compensation is more than sufficient to manage your well-being.

Effective Negotiation Skills

Insurance companies often engage in tough negotiations, seeking to settle claims quickly and for as little as possible. My negotiation skills, honed through years of practice allow me to advocate forcefully on behalf of my clients. I counter the tactics used by insurance adjusters to secure a fair settlement for you.

Legal Strategy

Every personal injury case is unique, and my experience has taught me to devise effective legal strategies tailored to the specifics of each claim. This personalized approach allows me to present compelling arguments that highlight the liability of the negligent party and the extent of your damages.

Litigation Experience

While many claims are settled outside of court, my history handling trials and courtroom proceedings is an invaluable asset. Insurance companies are more likely to offer fair compensation when they know I am prepared to take the case to trial if necessary.

Access to Experts

Over the years, I’ve built a network of medical experts, accident reconstruction specialists, and other professionals who can provide crucial testimony and evidence to bolster your case. This access to expert resources strengthens your position in negotiations with insurance companies.

Understanding Insurance Tactics

Being familiar with the common tactics employed by insurance companies leads to success. Insurance companies try to minimize payouts, use delay tactics, and attempt to shift blame onto the victim. I am able to anticipate and counter these tactics effectively.

If I take your case, your problems become my problems. I will be available to you 24/7 because I understand your questions and concerns don’t arise conveniently between the 9-5 work day. As my client, you will get my direct cell phone number.

Covering Upfront Costs

I have the financial position to cover all upfront case costs for my clients, which is incredibly beneficial when you are seeking damages. If you are injured due to another party’s negligence, you may be facing financial challenges, including medical expenses, lost wages, and other related costs. I can bear the initial expenses associated with pursuing a personal injury claim, providing several advantages for you:

Access to Legal Representation: By covering upfront costs, the financial barrier that may prevent you from seeking legal representation is removed. People hesitate to pursue a personal injury claim due to concerns about the costs involved. I will cover these expenses, making sure you don’t have to worry about upfront payments.

Leveling the Playing Field: Going up against insurance companies or well-funded defendants can be daunting, and expensive. By handling the initial costs, I level the playing field and give you a fair chance to recover compensation.

Thorough Investigation and Evidence Gathering: Personal injury cases often require in-depth investigations and gathering of evidence to establish liability and the extent of damages. By covering upfront costs, I can conduct a comprehensive investigation, hire expert witnesses, and gather the necessary evidence to build a strong case for my clients.

No Financial Risk for the Injured Party: I take on the financial burden of the case, so you do not face any financial risk.

Expert Legal Guidance: With upfront costs covered, you can focus on your recovery knowing that you have my expert legal guidance throughout the entire process. 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

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
