Personal Injury Lawyer St. Clairsville, Ohio

Injury Attorney: St. Clairsville Ohio

As a personal injury lawyer, I am dedicated to helping people in St. Clairsville and neighboring communities in Southeast Ohio. I have 2 goals with every case I take a case:

I Want to Make My Clients Whole Again

What I mean by this is, when someone is injured in a terrible accident or by a medical mistake, a piece of them is taken away. They are no longer the same person they were before their injury. While nothing will ever make up for the pain they have suffered, personal injury claims and a fair settlement will help them begin anew and get their life back.

In any personal injury case, my goals are to sufficiently compensate my client for the injuries they have suffered, and to make them “whole again” to the greatest extent possible. The damages awarded in such cases aim to address various aspects of the injured person’s life that may have been affected. Below is a list of damages that can help achieve this goal:

Medical Expenses

Medical expense damages will compensate for all of the medical costs incurred as a result of the injury, including hospital stays, surgeries, medications, rehabilitation, therapy, and future medical needs. This ensures that the injured person receives the necessary treatment without incurring financial burdens. In many cases, I have to fight the insurance companies directly in order make things right for my clients.

Lost Wages

A personal injury claim can be awarded financial compensation for lost wages because an injured person could not work as a result of the injury. This includes both the wages lost during the recovery period and future earnings if the injury results in the long-term inability to work. As an experienced personal injury lawyer, I understand the trickle-down affect these injuries can have on your life, and earnings.

Pain and Suffering

Personal injury law allows for physical pain, emotional distress and suffering to be compensated as a result of the injury. This acknowledges the intangible impact the injury has on a person’s quality of life, including physical discomfort, mental anguish, and loss of enjoyment of life.

Loss of Consortium

Compensation can also be awarded for the negative impact the injury caused to a person’s relationships, particularly their spouse. This includes the loss of companionship, emotional support, and the inability to engage in normal marital activities. It is devastating when a family loses quality of life due to a family member’s injury. This also occurs when a loved one has been lost as a result of a catastrophic injury. Loss of consortium is a tragic reality of many injury and wrongful death cases.

Property Damage

Any damage to personal property resulting from the incident that caused the injury should be reimbursed. For example, if a car accident caused the injuries, the injured person may receive compensation for the repair or replacement of their vehicle.

Loss of Enjoyment

The inability to engage in activities and hobbies that the injured person enjoyed prior to their injury may be compensated. This award recognizes that injuries may in fact limit the injured from participating in recreational activities, and diminishes their overall quality of life.

Rehabilitation and Assistive Devices

Compensation will often be awarded for the costs of rehabilitation services, such as physical therapy, occupational therapy, or the need for assistive devices like wheelchairs or prosthetics. This ensures that the injured person has access to the necessary therapy and devices to regain or enhance their mobility.

Future Damages

Personal injury lawyers, will always seek compensation for any future losses, or expenses resulting from the injury. This includes ongoing medical treatment, long-term care, modifications to living arrangements, and potential loss of future earning capacity.

Suffering injury due to someone else’s wrongdoing or negligence can forever adversely impact a person’s life. My goal as a Clairsville personal injury attorney, is to make my clients “whole again”. Call me today! If someone hurt your or your family, I’ll Make Them Pay!®

I Want to Change Policy

My hope is that pursuing my clients’ injury cases will deter others from making similar errors that hurt people. I never want the injuries suffered by my clients to happen to anyone else.

When a lawyer sues a company for negligence that resulted in personal injury, there is an opportunity to affect positive policy changes that can enhance the safety and well-being of the community. Here are some examples of policy changes that may arise from such lawsuits. Explanation of the dangers associated with existing policies, and how proposed changes can make the community safer will also be explored.

Product Safety Standards

If a personal injury is caused by a defective product, I will advocate for stricter product safety standards. By highlighting the dangers associated with the current standards, I can push for changes that ensure products meet higher safety requirements. This helps to prevent future injuries and protects consumers from potential harm.

Workplace Safety Regulations

If an employee sustains an injury due to unsafe working conditions, I will seek changes in workplace safety regulations. By exposing the risks and dangers posed by inadequate safety measures, it can push for stronger regulations that enforce better safety practices. This helps to protect workers from accidents, injuries, and occupational hazards.

Medical Procedures and Protocols

In cases where medical malpractice results in personal injury, I have the opportunity to fight for improved medical procedures and protocols. By highlighting the risks and consequences of substandard medical care, I can work towards changes that enhance patient safety. This can include stricter protocols, improved training, and increased accountability for medical professionals, ultimately reducing the likelihood of medical errors and improving patient outcomes.

Road Safety Measures

If a personal injury is caused by hazardous road conditions or negligent driving practices, we can seek changes in road safety measures. By highlighting the dangers associated with the current infrastructure or driving regulations, we can advocate for improvements. The goal will be to get better signage, enhanced traffic control, stricter enforcement of traffic laws, or the implementation of additional safety features. These changes can significantly reduce the risk of accidents and injuries in Clairsville, Ohio.

Consumer Protection Laws

In cases where a company’s deceptive practices or failure to provide adequate warnings lead to personal injury, I’ll push for stronger consumer protection laws. By exposing the dangers of insufficient regulations, I work for changes that enhance consumer rights, ensures transparency, and holds companies accountable for their actions. This helps to protect consumers from harm, misleading marketing, and unsafe products or services.

By pursuing these policy changes, we can contribute to the creation of a safer community. The dangers associated with maintaining the existing policies are addressed by implementing more robust safety standards, regulations, and accountability measures. This, in turn, reduces the risk of accidents, injuries, and harm to individuals and encourages responsible behavior from companies, institutions, and individuals. I want to create a safer environment that prioritizes the well-being and protection of the St. Clairsville community as a whole.

Types Of Claims In St. Clairsville, Ohio

Personal Injury

Personal injury lawsuits are filed when an individual suffers harm or injury due to the negligent, reckless, or intentional actions of another party. In this type of case, I seek compensation for the damages you have incurred. Some circumstances in which personal injury lawsuits may occur are:

a. Auto Accidents: When a person is injured due to a car, truck, motorcycle, or other vehicle accident caused by another driver’s negligence, due to speed distracted driving, or drunk driving.

b. Slip and Fall Accidents: Injuries sustained due to a hazardous conditions, such as a wet floor, uneven pavement, or poor lighting, that occurs on someone else’s property.

c. Medical Malpractice: This occurs when a healthcare professional’s negligence, error, or omission in medical care or treatment leads to harm or injury to a patient.

Wrongful Death

Wrongful death lawsuits are filed when someone’s death is caused by the actions of another party. These lawsuits seek compensation for the loss of the deceased person’s life and the damages suffered by their surviving family members. Some consistent circumstances in which wrongful death lawsuits may occur are:

a. Car Accidents: When a loved one is killed in a motor vehicle accident caused by another driver’s negligence or recklessness.

b. Medical Malpractice: If a patient dies as a result of a healthcare professional’s negligence, misdiagnosis, surgical error, or medication mistake.

c. Workplace Accidents: When an employee dies due to unsafe working conditions, inadequate safety measures, or employer negligence.

Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice lawsuits are filed when a healthcare professional fails to provide a reasonable standard of care, resulting in harm, injury, or death to a patient. I will seek compensation for all of the damages caused by medical negligence. Some circumstances in which medical malpractice lawsuits may occur are:

a. Surgical Errors: When a surgeon makes a mistake during a procedure, such as operating on the wrong body part, leaving surgical instruments inside the patient, or causing unnecessary complications.

b. Misdiagnosis or Delayed Diagnosis: Sometimes a healthcare professional fails to accurately diagnose a medical condition resulting treatment delays, worsening health and progression of a disease.

c. Medication Errors: If the healthcare provider prescribes the wrong medication, administers the wrong dosage, fails to consider drug interactions, or provides incorrect instructions, resulting in harm or injury to the patient.

Hiring A Personal Injury Attorney

I have more than 40 years of experience as a personal injury attorney. I’ve fought with insurance companies for damages that are crucial for the well-being of the injured party. Insurance companies play a pivotal role in providing coverage and financial protection to medical professionals, businesses, and drivers. I understand the dynamics involved and work tirelessly to make sure my clients get the help they need.

Insurance companies are the entities responsible for the payment of damages in personal injury cases. Medical professionals, businesses, and drivers carry insurance coverage to mitigate the financial risk associated with potential lawsuits. By obtaining insurance, their goal is to ensure that they have the means to compensate individuals who suffer harm due to their actions or negligence.

It is important to recognize that insurance companies are primarily driven by profit. Their objective is to minimize their financial liability and settle claims for the lowest possible amount. This often leads to tactics such as denial of claims, undervaluing damages, or attempting to shift blame onto the injured party. I know, dealing with insurance companies can be complex and challenging, especially for individuals who are unfamiliar with the legal process and negotiation strategies.

This is where my expertise of a personal injury attorney becomes invaluable. I have long understood the tactics employed by insurance companies and can navigate the complexities of the claims process. Here’s why my experience matters when dealing with insurance companies:

Knowledge of the Law and Insurance Practices

Through my years of practice, I have obtained a deep understanding of the legal framework and regulations surrounding personal injury cases. I am familiar with insurance policies, coverage limitations, and the tactics employed by insurers. This knowledge allows me to build a strong case for you and effectively counter the strategies used by insurance companies.

Negotiation Skills

Insurance companies often engage in negotiation tactics to settle claims quickly and for a lesser amount. Through years of experience, I have honed the skills to effectively negotiate with these companies. I will build a compelling case, present evidence, and effectively advocate for you to secure compensation.

Courtroom Experience

While most personal injury cases are settled through negotiations, some may require litigation. In such instances, my courtroom experience is essential. Insurance companies are more likely to take a claim seriously and offer fair settlements when they know the injured party is represented by a skilled trial lawyer.

For Over 40 Years, I Have Helped the People of Belmont County, Injured by Someone Else’s Negligence.

I will meet with you at your convenience at my St. Clairsville office, which is located near I-70 off of Banfield Road, or anywhere you are comfortable. If I take your case, I cover all costs, so you won’t have to pay one cent towards pursuing your lawsuit.

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

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

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
