Broken Bone Injury Claims Lawyers
The rate of which broken bone injuries are endured has increased significantly over the last several decades. Bone fractures have always been an issue in the United States, as they are one of the most common occurrences following a motor vehicle collision. A study from the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development has found that the growing number of broken bones in the country is connected to the change in diet that has taken place over the last 20 years.
Children are consuming milk at a much smaller rate than they had in earlier decades, the lack of calcium due to a limited milk intake can cause the bones to come weak and unable to sustain the strong impact of an auto collision. As the number of broken bones due to car crashes continues to rise, Arizona residents must take note of the dangers associated with broken bones. When an accident occurs, victims must immediately seek medical attention.
When an accident victim sustains broken bones, treatment is typically given to stabilize the area where the fracture occurred, allowing for proper healing. In the United States, bone fractures are amongst the most commonly seen injury throughout hospitals in each state. In fact, 6.3 million broken bones occur each and every year in America. Arizona reflects the current state of bone damage, as a large number of Arizona accidents result in some kind of broken bones.

While recent studies have indicated a general weakening of bones due to minimal calcium intake, the bones of a typical American are very strong. Nevertheless, when a traffic accident occurs and the impact is severe enough, the accident victims may suffer broken bones from the force of impact. When the body is unable to sustain the force of an impact, bone fractures are often suffered.
The most common causes of broken bones include but are not limited to the following:
- Auto Accidents
- Bicycle Crashes
- Boating Collisions
- Motorcycle Crashes
- Sports-Related injuries
- Work-Related Injuries

Jasmine , did a great job . Highly recommend!!!!!
Phillips law group has an amazing staff and i recommend them to everyone.
It’s an Honor and a Privilege to work for a company that cares about its employees and clients for 12 years. I’ve seen Management go out of their way to help someone whether it’s a personal matter or work related. I am also reminded of many occasions where a Client needed urgent help and we as a Team were able to get the person immediate assistance. At Phillips Law we make that happen through Teamwork and a dedication to our profession. I’ve had numerous jobs in several other fields, those were just jobs. This is a home. Many of us have been here for quite a few years, it feels like one large extended family.
I didn’t know anything about the area, and Phillips Law Group just took care of everything. They helped made sure I knew where I was going, made sure I didn’t have to worry. They literally just took care of me.
I would like to send special thanks to Phillips Law Group for giving me the opportunity to be a part of the Best Law Firm here in the Valley. During these troubling times with the epidemic, Phillips Law Group has masterfully created this family-like environment while still maintaining a professional and business-like approach for all their clients. Thru impeccable leadership that is unmatched by other law firms to the Multi-diverse employment opportunities that many employees advance within the firm; Phillips Law Group has not only distanced themselves from all other competition in the Personal Injury field but also has innovatively changed the narrative of being a great law institution. From providing Employee Appreciation Day to celebrating all major Holiday including great competitive contests; Phillips Law Group has the total participation of all employees to help contribute to the continued success of this firm. So in closing I would like to thank Senior Administration (Jeffery Phillips, Eva Chiaramonte, and Tim Tonkin) along with all of my colleagues and many friends for help making Phillips Law Group a unique and wonderful place to call my place of employment for 6+ years.
Many companies talk about teamwork but few practice it. Many companies talk about an employee friendly environment but few actually provide it. At Phillips Law Group the foundation of our success is making sure we work as a team and that we work in an environment that allows everyone to thrive and be at their best every day. Our firm understands that in order for the client to have a great experience the people responsible for that client’s case must be given all the necessary tools and encouragement to make that happen. That’s the Phillips Way. As a manager of this firm in charge of several employees as well as directly affecting the client’s experience I take tremendous pride in saying we live by these premises and we work hard to build on them and make them better every day. This is an amazing place because it has amazing people working here!
Phillips Law Group is a company that has taught me so many things. Here your work, your dedication, effort and discipline are valued, in addition to the fact that, as a woman, as an immigrant and as a human being, I have been given value and empowerment. We are a successful law firm because all workers feel part of a great family. I am very proud and honored to work at Phillips Law Group.
I enjoy my work day here at Phillips Law Group and generally speaking I love my clients. Every day brings a new client or task to keep me on my toes. Administration keeps open communication and is hilarious most of the time! I love the way we celebrate FRIDAY, holidays and birthdays and how everything is so competitive. All in all I’m so fortunate to be here and I enjoy what I do.
Great experience! Took care of pretty much everything, and I always felt like I want in good hands. Caroline Fa. was also a great help with everything. She always returned my calls and I never felt unheard. Even after my case she would still help me with my insurance documents.
Two family members were in a bad wreck a couple of years ago, and as a result called Phillips Law to represent them. Montana Thompson was the attorney assigned to the case with the help of Nemo Farr as legal assistant. Mr. Thompson litigated a very generous settlement for both my stepdaughter and her son. Because my grandson is a minor, I decided to act as conservator for him to ensure the settlement was safe and secure. Montana helped with that process, but it was Nemo who went way above and beyond the call in finding a financial institution to use for the restricted account. There were some glitches in that process but Nemo helped navigate them with a calm expertise which belies his age. I would consider them both great representatives of the level of commitment to their clients and assets to their firm.
