Tim Misny: Injury Lawyer Youngstown, Ohio
Proudly Serving the Personal Injury Legal Needs of My Neighbors in Youngstown and Boardman, Ohio for more than 40 Years!
When I take on a personal injury case, my hope is that by fighting for my client, I can make people do things differently; so no one becomes a victim of medical malpractice, birth injury, and catastrophic injury in the future. While changing policy is something I strive for in every case, my immediate goal is to get my clients the greatest compensation possible. I understand my effort will help to restore their lives, and the lives of their family members. I have proudly been part of many successful injury claims for the great people of Youngstown and Boardman, and hope my experience and client dedication will provide the comfort you need to call me.
Changing Policy For The Better
I play a significant role in driving policy changes for the better. These lawsuits arise when an individual suffers harm or injury due to the negligence or wrongdoing of another party. While the primary goal of a personal injury lawsuit is to seek compensation for the injured party, it can also serve as a catalyst for policy reform that benefits society as a whole. By holding wrongdoers accountable and highlighting systemic issues, personal injury lawsuits can shed light on areas where policies need improvement. When I became a personal injury attorney, I wanted to help make our cities safer, and to make the wonderful people living in Youngstown, Oh safer as well.
I want to bring attention to unsafe practices or products. When individuals file lawsuits against companies or organizations, they draw attention to specific incidents or situations where harm has occurred. These lawsuits can highlight flaws in existing policies or regulations that allowed the harm to happen in the first place. For example, a series of personal injury lawsuits against a pharmaceutical company that produces a dangerous medication can shed light on the need for stricter regulations and oversight in the pharmaceutical industry. By bringing attention to these issues, personal injury lawsuits can push policymakers and legislators to enact new policies that prioritize public safety. We want policies in place that ensure our trust in our medicine and our medical facilities!
I want these personal injury lawsuits to create financial burdens on companies so they improve their practices. When companies face the risk of substantial financial losses through lawsuits, it becomes economically advantageous for them to address the root causes of the injuries. This can lead to internal policy changes aimed at preventing similar incidents from occurring in the future. A manufacturer that faces numerous personal injury lawsuits due to defective products may invest in improving product quality control measures. Or even reevaluate their manufacturing processes to mitigate the risk of further harm. In this way, personal injury lawsuits can act as a powerful mechanism for prompting companies to adopt safer practices and policies.
It is important that these personal injury lawsuits influence public opinion and generate public pressure for policy changes. Media coverage of high-profile personal injury cases can increase public awareness of the issues at hand, rallying support for policy reform. As public sentiment shifts and more individuals become aware of the harm caused by certain practices or policies, pressure mounts on lawmakers to address these concerns. In Youngstown, personal injury cases, especially when serious injury occurs, need to be addressed. Together, we can make a difference in our community!
In my more than 40 years of experience, I’ve created precedents that shape legal standards and interpretations. When significant personal injury cases reach higher courts, their outcomes can establish legal precedents that influence future cases. These precedents can set new standards for liability, negligence, and duty of care, creating a framework for future policy developments. Landmark personal injury lawsuits have resulted in changes to workplace safety regulations, establishing higher standards for employers to ensure the well-being of their employees. You work hard to build your lifestyle, and it’s important that you are not only safe, but feel safe going to work everyday.
Injury victims need to believe that change is possible. I understand the pain and suffering you are going through. I want to help you, while also creating a safer environment for you and your loved ones. If you have been injured, through no fault of your own, let’s recoup the damages your need, and create positive change in your community. I’m here for you, and I’ll Make Them Pay!®

Examples Of Motor Vehicle Accidents
A driver fails to maintain a safe distance and crashes into the back of the car in front of them. This sudden impact can result in whiplash injuries, causing neck and back pain, muscle strains, and potential spinal injuries. Passengers in the rear vehicle may experience head injuries from hitting the dashboard or windshield.
A driver fails to yield the right of way at an intersection and collides with another vehicle. Depending on the speed and angle of impact, injuries can range from minor bruises and cuts to more severe injuries like broken bones, internal bleeding, or traumatic brain injuries. Pedestrians or cyclists involved in intersection collisions may suffer life-threatening injuries due to the lack of protection.
Side-impact Collision (T-bone)
A driver runs a red light and crashes into the side of another vehicle. These can cause significant injuries, including broken bones, concussions, internal organ damage, and spinal cord injuries. Occupants on the side of impact are particularly vulnerable to severe injuries as the force is concentrated on that area.
A vehicle loses control, often due to high speed or sharp turns, and rolls over onto its side or roof. Rollover accidents can lead to a range of injuries, such as head and brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, fractures, and internal injuries. Passengers who are not wearing seat belts may be ejected from the vehicle, resulting in more severe injuries or even fatalities.
A driver fails to notice a pedestrian crossing the road and strikes them with their vehicle. Pedestrians involved in motor vehicle accidents often suffer severe injuries, including broken bones, traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and internal injuries. Depending on the speed of the vehicle, pedestrians may be thrown several feet away, leading to additional injuries upon impact with the ground or other objects.
Being involved in any of these car accident situations can be devastating to you and your family. The strain is not only felt physically and mentally, but financially as well. Medical bills, time off of work, and recovery expenses pile up quickly. In my 40+ years of experience, I’ve helped people get through horrific circumstances, and I want to help you too!

Other Causes Of Personal Injury
Slip and Fall Accidents
Slip and fall accidents occur when a person loses their footing or encounters a hazardous condition, resulting in a fall. Injuries from slip and fall accidents can include fractures, sprains, head injuries, back and spinal cord injuries, and soft tissue damage. A person slipping on a wet floor in a grocery store can suffer a broken wrist or a head injury from the fall. Inadequate warnings are usually the cause of these injuries. By holding the store responsible, it will help make sure they pay attention to safety details.
Medical malpractice refers to negligent actions or omissions by healthcare professionals that result in patient harm. Injuries from medical malpractice can vary widely, ranging from medication errors, surgical mistakes, misdiagnosis, birth injuries, and anesthesia errors. These errors can lead to severe consequences such as infections, permanent disabilities, organ damage, and even wrongful death. It is important to feel safe when you go the doctor, or have to undergo surgery. Not only should you be compensated if you’ve suffered from medical malpractice, but those doctors need to be held to a higher standard of care.
Workplace accidents encompass a wide range of incidents that occur on the job, including falls from heights and machinery accidents. There is also the chance of exposure to hazardous substances, and construction site accidents. Injuries in the workplace can include broken bones, burns, lacerations, traumatic brain injuries, and respiratory problems from chemical exposure. Workers may also suffer long-term conditions like repetitive strain injuries or occupational diseases. Safe conditions and proper training help to avoid these injuries, and companies need to ensure this to their workers.
These cases arise when a defective or dangerous product causes harm to a consumer. Injuries from product liability cases can include burns from faulty appliances, injuries from malfunctioning machinery. Also, improper labeling can lead to allergic reactions from contaminated food or cosmetics. Severe health complications can occur from defective medications or medical devices. As a consumer, you deserve to feel comfortable purchasing products, knowing that all warning labels are included, and quality assurance testing was performed.
Injuries that occur on someone else’s property due to hazardous conditions or negligent maintenance, can be devastating. Bruises can result from slip and falls/ inadequate security can lead to assaults or injuries. Accidents can be caused by faulty infrastructure like broken stairs or handrails. Potential injuries in premises liability cases can include fractures, head injuries, spinal cord injuries, and soft tissue damage.
Receiving compensation for medical expenses is important for you, as it helps cover the costs of necessary medical treatment, surgeries, hospital stays, medications, and rehabilitation. These expenses can be significant, especially in cases of severe injuries. Recouping expenses allows you to access the necessary medical care without facing financial hardship.
If you’ve been injured, you may have to miss significant time at work. Compensation for lost income addresses the financial impact you incurred because you were unable to work. Serious injuries often result in temporary or permanent disability. Receiving compensation for lost income helps to alleviate the financial burden and provides stability during your recovery process.
Pain and Suffering
Pain and suffering damages acknowledge the physical and emotional distress you experience due to the accident and resulting injuries. These damages recognize the ongoing pain, discomfort, mental anguish, and loss of enjoyment of life caused by your injury. The aim is to provide some measure of justice and compensation for the intangible losses you suffered.
In cases where personal property is damaged or destroyed as a result of the accident, compensation for property damage becomes important. Whether it is a vehicle in a motor vehicle accident or personal belongings in another type of incident, receiving reimbursement for property damage allows you to repair or replace the damaged possessions. You should be able to restore your quality of life with minimal financial strain.
Loss of Consortium
Loss of consortium refers to the damages awarded to compensate the injured person’s spouse or family members for the loss of companionship, affection, and support. In cases where the injury causes long-term or permanent disability, your loved ones may also experience emotional distress and a significant impact on relationships. Injuries are hard on your loved ones as well,
When you’ve suffered a personal injury through no fault of your own, you need to seek compensation. Not only do you deserve payment for your medical expenses, recovery, and lost time at work, but accountability is important.
