Robert David Hall, 65, who plays Dr. Al Robbins on “CSI,” had both legs amputated in 1978 after a traffic accident and today uses prosthetic limbs. The native of East Orange, New Jersey, offers encouragement to others who have had similar injuries. “I’ve gone on. I’m married, have a child and am having a wonderful career,” he says. “So maybe that can give somebody courage or hope.” A former professional musician, he also appeared in the movies “Starship Troopers” and “The Negotiator,” and has been a guest on the TV shows “The West Wing,” “Touched by an Angel” and “The Practice.”
