Lima, Ohio Personal Injury Lawyer


Tim Misny: Helping Injured Victims in Lima, Ohio for More than 40 Years

Working as a Lima personal injury attorney, I have two goals when representing individuals who are, at no fault of their own, catastrophically injured:

  1. I want to help each injured victim get the money they so desperately need and deserve to repair the physical, emotional, and financial damages resulting from their injury; and

  2. I want to change policies in an effort to stop the negligence that all-too-often results in catastrophic injury.

Possible Causes Of Catastrophic Injuries


Car Accidents

Car accidents can result in catastrophic injuries, and fault may lie with one or more parties involved in the accident. Negligent drivers who violate traffic laws, drive recklessly, or engage in distracted driving can be held liable for causing the injuries. Additionally, other entities such as vehicle manufacturers or government agencies responsible for road maintenance may be sued if their negligence contributed to the accident and resulting personal injury.

Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice occurs when healthcare professionals, such as doctors, nurses, or hospitals, provide substandard care that leads to catastrophic injuries. Examples include surgical errors, misdiagnosis, medication errors, or failure to provide appropriate treatment. If a medical professional’s negligence causes harm, they can be sued for medical malpractice. If you live or work in Lima, Oh and have suffered serious injury, you need to call me.

Workplace Accidents

Employers have a legal responsibility to provide a safe working environment. If an employer fails to maintain a safe workplace or neglects safety regulations, resulting in a catastrophic injury, you have a personal injury case. Additionally, if a third party, such as a contractor or equipment manufacturer is responsible for the accident due to their negligence, they can be sued for the injuries caused. I have a strong history of success as a workers compensation lawyer, and I’ll Make Them Pay!®

Product Liability

Defective products, whether it’s a malfunctioning vehicle component, faulty machinery, or unsafe consumer goods, can lead to terrible injuries. In such cases, the manufacturer, distributor, or retailer may be held liable for the injuries caused by their defective product. Product liability lawsuits can be filed to seek compensation for the damages suffered.

Premises Liability

Property owners or occupiers have a duty to maintain safe premises for visitors. If a hazardous condition, such as slippery floors, inadequate security, or structural defects, leads to an injury, the property owner or occupier may be held responsible. They can be sued for premises liability if their negligence contributed to the injury.

Construction Accidents

Construction sites are prone to accidents due to hazardous conditions and the involvement of multiple parties. If a terrible injury occurs on a construction site, responsibility may lie with the construction company, contractors, subcontractors, or equipment manufacturers. Lima, Ohio workers compensation lawyers like myself, will seek to prove negligence occurred. Negligence in maintaining safety protocols, providing proper training, or failing to address dangerous conditions can result in legal action against these parties.

Assault or Battery

Intentional acts of violence, such as assault or battery, can cause catastrophic injuries. The person who committed the assault or battery can be held legally responsible for the injuries inflicted. In addition to criminal charges, the injured person can sue the perpetrator for personal injury. Personal injury lawyers seek compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering, and other damages resulting from the intentional act of violence.

Catastrophic Personal Injuries



Paraplegia is the paralysis of the lower half of the body, typically caused by a spinal cord injury in the lower back region. It can result from accidents, such as falls or car accidents. Paraplegia significantly affects mobility and independence, requiring the use of a wheelchair or assistive devices for mobility. Personal injury cases can be filed to help pay for the ongoing needs of the victim.


Amputation involves the loss of a limb, such as an arm or leg, either through accidents or surgical intervention. Losing a limb has a profound impact on daily life, employment prospects, and psychological well-being. Coping with amputation requires rehabilitation, prosthetic devices, physical therapy, and psychological support.


Partial blindness, or complete loss of eyesight can be caused by various factors, including eye injuries, or diseases. The loss of vision profoundly affects a person’s independence, mobility, and ability to perform daily tasks. Coping with blindness involves learning adaptive techniques, using assistive technology, orientation and mobility training, and emotional support. As a personal injury attorney, I’ll fight for the resources you need to cope with this life-altering change.


Deafness is the complete loss of hearing and can result from factors such as infection, or exposure to loud noises. Communication, social interactions, and everyday life become challenging for individuals who are deaf. Coping with deafness may involve learning sign language, undergoing cochlear implants, speech therapy and accessing support from the deaf community. Financial compensation will be critical to manage life as a deaf person. Call me today for your free consultation.

Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

Traumatic brain injuries occur due to sudden trauma to the head, often caused by accidents or falls. TBIs can lead to cognitive impairments, memory loss, mood disorders, and physical disabilities. Coping with TBI requires medical treatment, rehabilitation therapies, cognitive training, and emotional support.

Severe Burn Injuries

Severe burn injuries cause damage to the skin and underlying tissues, often resulting from fires, chemical exposure, or electrical accidents. Personal injury attorneys fight to recover damages and can help recover workers compensation if the burn injury resulted at work. The physical and emotional impact of severe burns can be extensive, requiring specialized burn care, wound management, pain management, reconstructive surgeries, physical therapy, and psychological support.

Spinal Cord Injury

Spinal cord injuries, often caused by accidents or falls, can result in full paralysis of the arms and legs. In addition to loss of mobility, this life-changing injury may cause sensory impairment, and psychological trauma as well. Coping with spinal cord injuries involves rehabilitation, assistive devices, physical and occupational therapy, and psychological support.

Organ Failure

Organ failure, such as the heart, lung, or kidney, occurs due to various causes, including disease or injury, and can even lead to death. Organ failure requires immediate medical intervention, ongoing treatment, and may necessitate organ transplantation. Coping with organ failure involves managing complex medical treatments lifestyle modifications, and emotional support.

Severe Neurological Disorders

Conditions like ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis), multiple sclerosis, or Parkinson’s disease are severe neurological disorders that progressively impact motor function, coordination, and overall quality of life. Coping with these disorders involves medical management, physical therapy, adaptive devices, and psychological support. If you suffer from a neurological disorder as a result of exposure to harmful chemicals at work, you deserve to be compensated through a workers’ compensation claim.

Ongoing Costs After A Life-Changing Injury


Medical Expenses

These can encompass a wide range of costs, including emergency care, surgeries, hospital stays, medication, rehabilitation, and ongoing treatment. These expenses are necessary for the injured person’s recovery, pain management, and overall well-being. However, catastrophic injuries often involve extensive medical interventions and long-term care, resulting in high medical bills. Bills can be challenging to afford without adequate insurance coverage or financial resources.

Rehabilitation and Therapy Costs

Rehabilitation and therapy play a crucial role in helping individuals regain function, independence, and adapt to the challenges posed by a horrible injury. This may include physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, and psychological counseling. These services are necessary for the injured person’s physical and emotional recovery, but they can be costly, requiring multiple sessions over an extended period of time. Accessing and affording these services can be a financial burden for individuals and their families. These bills may not be covered by social security disability. As a personal injury attorney, I’ll fight for the compensation you deserve to ensure your needs are met ongoing.

Assistive Devices and Mobility Aids

Depending on the type of catastrophic injury, individuals may require assistive devices and mobility aids such as wheelchairs, prosthetics, orthotics, walkers, or specialized equipment. These aids are necessary for enhancing mobility, accessibility, and overall quality of life. However, acquiring these devices can be expensive, and ongoing maintenance and replacement costs add to the financial burden. Call me today, and I’ll work to ensure you are properly compensated to manage your long-term health and financial needs.

Home Modifications

Catastrophic injuries often necessitate modifications to the injured person’s home to enhance accessibility and accommodate their specific needs. This may include installing ramps, widening doorways, adding handrails, or adapting bathrooms and kitchens. These modifications are crucial for safety, mobility, and independence. However, the costs of home modifications can be significant. When the injury is caused by someone else’s negligence, you need to call me. I’ll Make Them Pay!®

Personal Care Assistance

Depending on the severity of the injury, the injured person may require personal care assistance to help with daily activities such as bathing, dressing, eating, and medication management. The need for personal care assistance is essential for maintaining hygiene, preventing complications, and ensuring a good quality of life. However, the cost of hiring professional caregivers or obtaining in-home nursing services can be substantial. It may be difficult for individuals and families to afford these ongoing expenses without financial support.

Lost Income and Reduced Work Capacity

Catastrophic injuries often result in a significant impact on an individual’s ability to work or pursue their previous occupation. Lost wages can have a profound financial impact, making it difficult to cover daily expenses, medical bills, and other costs associated with the injury. The injured person may require vocational training or alternative employment opportunities, but these transitions can take time and may not guarantee the same earning potential as before the injury.

Mental Health Support

Catastrophic injuries can lead to emotional distress, anxiety, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Seeking mental health support and counseling is crucial for the injured person’s well-being and coping with the psychological challenges of the injury. However, mental health services can be expensive, making it difficult for individuals and families to afford the necessary support.

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 else.read 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 Misny.read 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 time.read 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 highly.read 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 that.read 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 honorably.read 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 pay.read more
