Possible Reasons To File A Personal Injury Lawsuit


Car Accidents

If you’ve been injured in a car accident that was caused by the negligence of a person driving a company vehicle while conducting company business, it may be grounds for a personal injury lawsuit. If the facts show the driver and the company was negligent, you may be eligible to be compensated for medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

Workplace Accidents

If an employee suffers an injury or illness due to unsafe working conditions, lack of proper training, defective equipment, or employer negligence, they may eligible to file a personal injury claim through workers’ compensation. Personal injury law is the vehicle that enables you to seek compensation for current and future medical bills, lost earnings, and other damages.

Construction Site Accidents

Personal injury cases where a worker or bystander is injured on a construction site due to the negligence of a company, are more common than you know. Inadequate safety measures, faulty equipment, or failure to adhere to regulations are grounds to file a personal injury lawsuit for compensation and damages. Catastrophic injuries have occurred when safety protocols and procedures have not been followed to ensure the safety of employees and others.

Medical Malpractice

If a person suffers harm or injury as a result of negligent or substandard medical care by a healthcare facility or its staff, they may have a valid personal injury claim. This can include misdiagnosis, surgical errors, medication mistakes, or failure to provide proper care.

Dangerous or Defective Products

If you or a loved one were harmed by a defective product manufactured, distributed, or sold by a company, please call me as soon as possible to discuss a potential personal injury claim. As a highly experienced personal injury lawyer for more than 40 years, I know what it takes to win a case. The company has a responsibility to ensure the safety of its products and warn consumers about potential risks. If they don’t, I’ll Make Them Pay!®

Toxic Exposure

If an individual develops an illness or injury due to exposure to toxic substances, they may have a personal injury case. Hazardous chemicals or pollutants released by a company’s operations, can be harmful to employees and the public. In Cleveland, personal injury lawsuits can be filed against the company for failing to take appropriate measures to protect the public or its employees.

Assault and Security Breaches

If a person is assaulted and suffers harm due to inadequate security provided by a company, they may entitled to compensation. Lack of surveillance, negligent hiring practices, or failure to respond to known risks, can lead to catastrophic injuries. Hiring me as their personal injury lawyer ensures they have the best chance to successfully prove their case.

Public Transportation Accidents

In cases where a person sustains injuries due to the negligence of a public transportation company or its employees, such as a bus, train, or taxi/Uber, they may be able to collect damages. Public transportation must be safe and accessible to all passengers.

Negligent Hiring and Supervision

If an individual is harmed by an employee with a known history of violence, criminal behavior, or incompetence, the company may be at fault. The company may have failed to conduct proper background checks or adequately supervise their employee. The injured party can file a personal injury claim against the company for negligent hiring and supervision.

Personal Injury Because of Medical Malpractice


Surgical Errors

Surgical errors can result in severe injuries such as; organ damage, nerve damage, infections, or even wrongful death. Examples include wrong-site surgery, anesthesia errors, or leaving surgical instruments inside the patient’s body.

Medication Mistakes

Medication errors can result in very harmful consequences, such as an adverse drug reaction, or overdose. This can occur due to prescribing errors, incorrect dosage, dispensing errors, or failure to consider a patient’s allergies or interactions with other medications.

Misdiagnosis or Delayed Diagnosis

When a healthcare professional fails to diagnose a condition accurately or in a timely manner, it can result in delayed or inappropriate treatment, allowing the condition to worsen. This can lead to unnecessary suffering, progression of the illness, or missed opportunities for successful treatment.

Birth Injuries

Birth injuries can occur during childbirth due to medical negligence. Improper use of delivery instruments, failure to monitor fetal distress, or delayed response to complications, can all lead to problems. These injuries can cause lifelong disabilities or conditions for the newborn, including cerebral palsy, Erb’s palsy, shoulder dystocia and other life-altering injuries.

Anesthesia Errors

Mistakes made during anesthesia administration can cause serious and sometimes lethal personal injury. Issues may be caused from allergic reactions, medication errors, inadequate monitoring, or improper intubation. These errors can result in brain damage, cardiac complications, or even death.

Hospital-acquired Infections

If a patient acquires an infection while receiving medical treatment for another issue in a healthcare facility, they may have a personal injury claim. Surgical site infection or a bloodstream infection due to inadequate hygiene practices, contaminated equipment, or failure to follow proper infection control protocols may be grounds for a personal injury claim.

Failure to Provide Adequate Follow-up Care

When healthcare professionals fail to provide appropriate post-treatment or post-operative care, it can result in worsening conditions, or delayed recovery. This may include failure to monitor a patient’s progress, provide necessary instructions, or arrange necessary consultations or referrals.

Anesthesia Awareness

Anesthesia awareness refers to the rare occurrence when a patient remains conscious during surgery but is unable to move or communicate. This can cause significant psychological trauma, anxiety, and distress for the patient.

Nursing Home Negligence

In a nursing home setting, negligence or abuse by staff can result in severe injury. For those who are unable to care for themselves, negligence can result in bedsores, falls, malnutrition, dehydration, and medication errors. Nursing home abuse can result in broken bones, bruising, and emotional trauma. If you or a family member have been hurt as a result of nursing home negligence or abuse, I can help you!

Emotional or Psychological Trauma

Medical malpractice can lead to significant emotional or psychological trauma for patients and their families. This may include trauma caused by medical errors, misdiagnosis, delayed diagnosis, or inappropriate treatment. The problems may lead to anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), or loss of quality of life.

Personal Injury Lawsuit: Birth Injuries


Cerebral Palsy

Cerebral palsy is a neurological disorder caused by brain damage during or shortly after birth. It can occur due to medical negligence, such as oxygen deprivation, failure to monitor fetal distress, improper use of delivery instruments, or delayed emergency interventions. Cerebral palsy can result in lifelong motor, cognitive, and developmental disabilities.

Erb’s Palsy

Erb’s palsy, also known as brachial plexus injury, happens when the nerves in the shoulder and arm are damaged during birth. This can occur due to excessive force or improper maneuvers used during a difficult delivery. Erb’s palsy can lead to weakness, loss of sensation, or paralysis in the affected arm.

Facial Nerve Injury

Facial nerve injuries can occur if excessive pressure or trauma is applied to the baby’s face during birth. This can lead to facial paralysis or weakness, impacting the ability to close the eye, smile, or control facial expressions.

Fracture Injuries

Improper handling or excessive force during delivery can cause bone fractures and other injuries in newborns. Common fractures include clavicle (collarbone) fractures, skull fractures, or fractures in the arms or legs.

Hypoxic-Ischemic Encephalopathy (HIE)

HIE refers to brain damage caused by oxygen deprivation and reduced blood flow to the brain during childbirth. It can occur due to complications such as umbilical cord problems, placental issues, or prolonged labor. HIE can lead to cognitive impairments, developmental delays, seizures, and other neurological problems.

Perinatal Asphyxia

Perinatal asphyxia occurs when the baby’s oxygen supply is significantly reduced during labor and delivery. It can result from medical negligence, such as failure to respond to fetal distress or delay in performing an emergency cesarean section. Perinatal asphyxia can cause brain damage, cognitive impairments, motor disabilities, or even wrongful death.

Spinal Cord Injuries

Spinal cord injuries during birth can occur if excessive force is applied to the baby’s spine. These injuries can result in partial or complete paralysis, loss of sensation, or other neurological impairments, depending on the level and severity of the spinal cord damage. No matter the severity, it is devastating when an otherwise healthy child’s life begins like this.

Skull and Brain Injuries

Improper use of delivery instruments, such as forceps or vacuum extractors, can cause skull fractures or brain injuries in newborns. These injuries can lead to bleeding in the brain (intracranial hemorrhage), or other traumatic brain injuries.

Fetal Distress-Related Injuries

Failure to promptly recognize and address signs of fetal distress, such as abnormal heart rate or oxygen levels, can result in various birth injuries. These injuries may include brain damage, organ damage, or developmental disabilities due to prolonged oxygen deprivation or inadequate medical intervention.


Infections acquired during the birthing process can occur due to medical negligence, such as inadequate hygiene practices, contaminated forceps, or a surgical instrument or gauze left inside the mother after a C-section. Newborns can develop serious infections, including sepsis, meningitis, or pneumonia, which can lead to long-term health complications or even death.


Personal injuries, occurring at work, in public, or even at the hospital can have life-changing consequences. You need to call me if this has happened to you. As a personal injury lawyer, I am here to recover damages for you, and hold those responsible accountable for your suffering. You may need to recoup medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering and other damages. Call me anytime, and I’ll Make Them Pay!®

Medical Expenses

In a personal injury lawsuit, the injured person can sue for compensation for medical expenses resulting from the injury. This includes costs associated with hospitalization, surgeries, medications, rehabilitation, therapy, and any other necessary medical treatment. Receiving compensation for medical expenses, can alleviate the financial burden, and ensure access to proper healthcare.

Lost Wages

If the injury prevents a person from working, they can seek compensation for lost wages/income. This includes wages lost due to time off work for medical appointments, surgeries, recovery, or any period of disability caused by the injury. Receiving compensation for lost wages, can mitigate the financial impact of being unable to work, and maintain their financial stability during the recovery process.

Pain and Suffering

Recovery of damages for pain and suffering may include compensation for physical pain, mental anguish, emotional distress, and loss of enjoyment of life resulting from the injury. This type of compensation acknowledges the non-economic impact of the injury on the individual’s quality of life, well-being, and emotional state. It provides some measure of comfort and recognition for the pain and suffering endured by the injured person.

Property Damage

In cases where personal property is damaged as a result of the incident, such as a car accident, the injured person can seek compensation for the repair or replacement costs of the damaged property. This includes vehicles, personal belongings, or any other property that was damaged due to the negligence or wrongdoing of another party. Compensation for property damage helps the injured person recover the value of their damaged property and restore their possessions to their pre-incident condition.

Loss of Consortium

Loss of consortium refers to damages sought by a spouse or family member of the injured person. It compensates for the loss of companionship, love, affection, and support resulting from the injury. The injured person’s spouse or family member may experience a significant impact on their relationship and quality of life due to the injury. Compensation for loss of consortium acknowledges and provides some measure of relief for this loss.

Why You Need Tim

For more than 40 years, I have had two goals in representing clients and their families who have been made victims of medical malpractice, birth injuries, and catastrophic injuries.

First, I recover significant compensation for my clients so that they may lead as normal of a life as possible. Secondly, I hold people and businesses accountable for their negligence so that similar tragedies never happen again.

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

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 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
