My name is Robert Goldwater, and I am a personal injury and medical malpractice attorney in Scottsdale, Arizona. In 2002, my wife gave birth to triplets. Unfortunately, they were born almost four months prematurely. They all suffered from numerous complications, including jaundice, respiratory distress, bradycardia, broncopulmonary dyslpasia, intraventricular hemorrhage (brain bleeds), retinopathy of prematurity, etc. They spent the first four months of their lives in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, and then another six months of their lives in various hospitals around the country. All three children were placed on feeding tubes, and two of them have been diagnosed with cerebral palsy. Needless to say, life has been a struggle for them, as well as a very tough road for my wife and me.
In 2003, I founded the Cerebral Palsy Lawyers Group to provide helpful information for the families of children injured at birth. Although my children’s injuries were not caused by medical malpractice, a substantial number of birth injuries are the direct result of substandard medical care. I wanted to provide a resource for parents to find out if their child’s birth injury was preventable, and if it was preventable, to connect them with one of the best birth injury attorneys in their area to help them obtain the maximum out-of-court settlement possible from the appropriate insurance company(ies).
