Common Causes of Broken Bones
Broken bones have been a growing issue in the United States for the last few decades. Over the past 30 years, the number of bone fractures has increased dramatically. In fact, a recent study from the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development has linked the growing issue of broken bones to a shift in the typically daily diet. Children are no longer consuming milk at the rate in which they had in previous decades. As a result, children are calcium deficient and thus unable to withstand impact due to unhealthy bones.
In the United States, broken bones account for some of the most frequent hospital visits. Approximately 6.3 million bone fractures occur each year throughout the nation. Arizona, much like the rest of the country, has suffered from a rising occurrence in the number of Auto Accidents
- Truck Accidents
- Motorcycle Collisions
- Sports Injuries
- Work-Related Injuries
Regardless of the specific cause of broken bones, injured parties must seek medical care as soon as possible. These types of injuries must be set in place to avoid further complications. In addition, the sooner the bone is splinted, the sooner the healing can begin to take place. As such, hiring a Mesa personal injury attorney is essential to recovery. As you concentrate on healing, Phillips Law Group focuses on fighting for the compensation that you deserve.
Types of Broken Bones
Orthopedic physicians in the United States see more broken bone injuries than any other type of ailment. Broken bones are considered to be either open or closed and either displaced or non-displaced. Treatment for these injuries depends on the location of the break, the force of the impact, and the damage to any surrounding tissues or bones. Regardless of how severe you feel your injury may be, a medical professional must be the one to assess the damages and determine the best plan of action for treatment.
The following are some of the most common types of broken bones:
- Compound Fracture
- Oblique Fracture
- Comminuted Fracture
- Spiral Fracture
- Impacted Fracture
- Greenstick Fracture
- Stress Fracture
- Transverse Fracture
In general, all of the above types of broken bones are treatable. However, the longer accident victims wait to seek medical care, the greater the likelihood that these injuries will worsen. As such, personal injury victims must immediately go to a doctor for an assessment of damages. A healthcare professional will be able to examine the damage and determine a treatment plan.If you or a loved one has been injured and treated for broken bones, you may be entitled to monetary recompense for the damages that you have suffered. Phillips Law Group offers services throughout the state of Arizona.

Great company and awesome service. Thanks Caroline fabos. Kudos to all.
Definitely recommend! Awesome
My Attorney Sean Davis and his paralegal Hannah Dustin worked on my case. They listened to the problems that I was having with my case and they both got right to work. First they found me a doctor that actually listened to my problems from my car accident and worked quickly to form a plan that was comfortable for me and the doctor. The doctor was the best and after a couple of procedures the pain in my neck was gone. Behind the scenes Sean and Hannah were working hard to get my case settled with the insurance company. They kept in contact with me on all aspects of my case. They settled my case much faster than I expected and for more than I was expecting. If you want two real professional legal people to work on your case, I would highly recommend Sean and Hannah to you. I cannot say enough nice things about these two. Thank you so much, Rickey Hart .
Sophia H is very helpful.
Jasmine , did a great job . Highly recommend!!!!!
PLG is the best! Highly recommend. Love that they do so much to help the community.
I tried a few previous law firms and none would take my car accident case with confidence they could get my anything. Phillips law group took my case and although it took around 4 years to get this case settled as I was in treatment, they never let up with insurance adjusters and they got me as much money as possible. They worked hard for me and advocated for me. Shoutout to key individuals who worked my case nonstop of the years, Robert Ross & Jasmine, you are AMAZING!
