Depending on the type of amputation, it may be impossible to return to your previous job or perform daily tasks for yourself and your family.

At Rome, Arata, Baxley & Stelly, LLC, our lawyers provide compassionate, experienced representation to amputation victims and their families. We understand that catastrophic injuries affect the entire family, often requiring family members to take on different roles and duties.
