Seeking Justice For Amputation Victims

Accidents causing surgical or traumatic amputation are some of the most challenging cases we deal with.

Life after an amputation

Recovery and rehabilitation after an amputation can be a long, difficult and painful process. The length of time it takes before you are able to go back to work or home will depend on the type of amputation you’ve had and any ongoing complications such as infections, phantom pain, ongoing surgical procedures. You may need to have an occupational therapist visit your home and assess the environment to ensure it’s favorable for your condition.

A prosthetic limb may need to be fitted depending on your overall condition. Adjusting to life without limbs or using a prosthetic usually takes a considerable amount of rehabilitation and, unfortunately, financial expenses.

Howard is an excellent, meticulous lawyer. Perhaps even more important though, is that he is a compassionate human being. A very good listener and an even better questioner!

I have known Howard for nearly 20 years. During that time he not only helped me with sound, expert advice pertaining to a "Ponzi scheme" that devastated my family, he has helped countless others. He is dedicated to the law and a true expert in his field. I know first hand that he has changed the destiny of many of his clients , allowing them to move forward with dignity after suffering catastrophic events. He cares deeply , has dogged determination, vast experience and his team of lawyers and support staff are second to none. I would highly recommend Howard and his team.
