Big Rig Driver Fell Asleep = $1.6 million

"The big rig driver admitted at the accident scene that he fell asleep when he crossed into my lane and nearly killed me. Later, he told his insurance company that he blacked out from some unknown medical condition. They refused to pay for my 5 surgeries. Todd personally conducted a complete investigation and located witnesses and evidence to prove the truth. Todd won my case for me which settled before trial for a value of $1.6 million."

American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA)

The American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA) is one of the most prestigious affiliations that a trial attorney can achieve during a career. ABOTA has existed for over 50 years. There are only 6,300 members in the world while California alone has approximately 250,000 lawyers admitted to its Bar. To become a member, a trial attorney must be invited, sponsored by an existing member, and approved by at least 75% of the chapter's membership. To qualify, all members must have tried numerous civil cases before a jury to conclusion with a verdict.

Todd Bissell was honored with an invitation to join ABOTA and has held an Associate status with their Sacramento Valley Chapter since 2007.

Todd Took My Case All The Way To Trial

"The other driver was elderly and ran a red light when he crashed into my car. He told the police that he did not know what color the light was. He later changed his story and sued me, saying that I ran the red light! Because there were no witnesses, his insurance company refused to pay for my totaled car or for my injuries. My first attorney then dropped my case. My doctor recommended Todd Bissell who agreed to take on my case. Todd fought hard for me and took my case all the way to trial. After Todd won our pre-trial motions, the insurance company got reasonable and we were able to settle the case. Thanks Todd for sticking with me when my other attorney gave up on me."
