Yes, lift the entire plant, taking care not to damage the crown.
The Ligularia will many times have little off shoots next the main crown.
These small off shoots can also be removed and new plantings started.
Keep the plants out of the ground as little time as possible.

Q. Frost damaged Ligularia

We had an unusual freeze here in Houston (24) and my Ligularia were frozen and turned brown. It was obvious those leaves would not come back, but are the roots OK? Will they bloom again? We are back to 70 degrees.

Your plant should grow back just fine. Ligularia can be cultivated in regions as cold as zone 4, where the ground is frozen for most of the winter. In these regions the leaves die back but the root survives and sprouts again the next spring. Sooner or later, your plant will grow back.
