Cleveland Medical Malpractice Attorney

“I have been there so many times before and NOW I will be there for YOU and your family.”
- Tim Misny - The man that “Makes Them Pay!®”

“Please understand that the slogan, I’ll Make Them Pay!® is not a guarantee of payment. Both liability and real damages must be proven with preponderance of the evidence.” – Tim Misny

Cleveland Medical Malpractice Attorney

I have served the residents of Cleveland and most Southern Ohio cities as a medical malpractice attorney for 40 Years.  I’ve helped many injured victims and their families, but often encountered many patients who were told by health care professionals that their injuries were unavoidable.

This is often untrue.

Statistically, over 1.3 million people per year are injured by hospital malpractice, physician errors, or incidents leading to medical negligence claims.  The Journal of  the American Medical Association reports that approximately 225,000 wrongful deaths occur every year due to medical malpractice.

Most shocking about these numbers is that less than 10% of all medical malpractice claims are ever pursued.  Many victims of medical negligence and malpractice never bring a claim, and they never exercise the right to be compensated for their injuries.

Don’t be a silent victim.  Call me, and if I decide to take your case “I’ll Make Them Pay!®”

I have two goals in representing you and your family in a medical malpractice claim.

First, I will help you get the compensation you need for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

Equally important, I will hold the medical professional involved accountable for his or her actions.  Together, by pursuing a medical malpractice claim, we can change policies and procedures so tragedies like the one you have experienced do not continue to happen over and over again.

What is Medical Malpractice?

Professionally, doctors and other health care providers are held to the highest standards of care in our society. Medical malpractice occurs when medical professionals don’t meet these standards.  Essentially, medical malpractice is defined as a health care provider’s breach of the duty of care he or she owes to the patient.

Medical malpractice cases can be tough, and you want to have an experienced medical malpractice attorney helping you with your case.  We not only have to prove that the health care provider made a mistake, we also must prove that the mistake is the direct and proximate cause of the victim’s injury.

As an Ohio medical malpractice attorney, I’ve had success pursuing claims for two reasons.

First, I have gained decades of knowledge from helping victims and their families. There is no substitute for experience.

The second reason for my success is that I have tremendous financial resources that are dedicated to developing my clients’ cases.

Insurance companies for health care providers will try to outspend and outlast people bringing claims, hoping victims will lack the resources to continue fighting and will eventually give up on obtaining the compensation they deserve.

I can match them dollar for dollar, and I have the lasting commitment to my clients to see their cases through to the end.

Medical Malpractice Statute of Limitations

There is a one-year statute of limitations for bringing a medical malpractice claim in Ohio.

The statute of limitations is the period prescribed by law in which someone has to bring a claim. In most personal injury claims, i.e. car accidents, slip and falls, and workers’ compensation claims, there is a two-year statute of limitations.

Medical malpractice claims are different.  You only have one year to bring a medical malpractice claim. Therefore, you must contact a lawyer as soon as you realize you have been a victim.

The year you have to bring a medical malpractice claim begins from the date of the act of malpractice, or from the date a person reasonably knew that the malpractice occurred, or from the date of the termination of the physician-patient relationship.

Clearly, this can get really confusing really quickly. The thing to keep in mind is simply that if you even suspect you or a loved one have been a victim of medical malpractice, you need to CALL ME immediately at 1-800-55-MISNY.

What to Expect from me as your Medical Malpractice Attorney

I am here to help you.  I am happy to meet with you at a time and place that is most convenient for you.

Over the many years, I have accommodated my clients’ busy schedules by meeting them in the evenings and on weekends at their homes, in the hospital, at their work place, at funeral homes, and even at cemeteries.

If I decide to take your case, I will give you my direct dial cell phone number, so you will have complete access to me 24/7.  I do this because critical communication about medical care does not fit neatly into a 9-5, Monday through Friday work schedule.

The legal process surrounding a medical malpractice claim can be confusing and emotionally wearing. Sometimes you can’t sleep at night or you think of a question you must know the answer to before you can rest. That is why open communication is key to any cases I handle. [link to Ron Nagy Testimonial]

Medical malpractice cases are some of the most complicated and sophisticated cases in all of law. Proving the elements of a claim becomes very expensive very quickly.

It is not uncommon to have in excess of $100,000 of expenses in a case. Expert witness testimony necessary to prove the breach of the duty of care owed, the causation, and the resulting damages are a major financial undertaking.

You must know that if I take your case, it will not cost you one red cent. My fee is a contingency, which means it is a percentage based upon the total recovery. If there is no recovery, there is no fee, and you pay nothing. I also pay all of the costs associated with developing the claim.

If you or a loved one has been a victim of medical malpractice, call me immediately at 1-800-55-MISNY.

Tim is hands down the best lawyer in town. He was able to guide me through the legal process and keep me informed at... all stages. Which allowed me to not stress and focus on life. 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! There's a reason he's on literally every billboard in more

I met him 30 years ago with my husband Jim. Tim approached me as a Christian man who had nothing but good intentions... and a good heart. After becoming close with him he took us to Denny’s for a nice lunch and offered to pay for us even. Come to find out Tim was not who we thought he was, he only let me and my husband order off of the two dollar menu and would not allow me to get a grand slam because he said that I was too obese to get a grand 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

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
