Mr. Romano has recovered more than eight hundred million dollars ($800,000,000) on behalf of individual clients, including those who suffered amputation injuries because of trauma, electrocutions, explosions, car accidents, product liability, machinery accidents, tractor-trailer accidents, objects falling from heights, power lines falling, recreational injuries, construction accidents, and medical malpractice. He has experience in all types of amputation injuries involving children and adults including traumatic amputations, surgical amputations, lower-limb amputations, upper-limb amputations.
Losing a limb is one of the most traumatic physical injuries a person can experience. In addition to being a devastating physical injury, amputation injuries can also cause disfigurement, scaring, and past and future pain and suffering. Depending on the nature of the injury and the body part that was amputated, an individual may require multiple surgeries, months of physical rehabilitation, occupational therapy, and learning how to use a prosthetic device.
Private health insurance companies, self-insureds, and managed care insurers can reduce, limit, or refuse to pay benefits for amputation injuries at any time. The trend is for health insurers to pay benefits for a limited period. Unlike most personal injury attorneys, Mr. Romano will advocate and fight with the client’s health insurer, and aggressively appeal health insurance benefits to maximize their rehabilitation care and return to independence. A prompt extensive investigation to determine what caused an individual’s amputation is needed to determine what funds will be available to pay for short-term and long-term benefits.

Joseph Romano is a liability lawyer with a modern-day twist: He also guides his clients through the mazes of managed care”.
