According to the Arizona Department of Health Services, there are 10,000 Ischemic strokes that occur each year throughout Arizona, while stokes are the third leading cause of death in the entire United States.
A stroke may occur when the blood supply to your brain is cut off or reduced. This caused the brain to become deprived of oxygen and nutrients, which in turn causes the cells to die. Often times, a stroke is caused by a blocked artery, or burst blood vessel which causes this disruption of blood flow through the brain.

Types of Strokes
As strokes are so common throughout the United States and elsewhere in the world, medical professionals have categorized them into different types due to their symptoms. In any case, strokes can alter the life of an individual and cause serious damages to the brain if they are not cared for immediately.
Some common types of strokes include:
These types of strokes are responsible for 85 percent of all strokes. Ischemic strokes occur when the arteries of the brain become blocked or narrowed, which cause the blood flow to the brain to become drastically reduced, also known as ischemia. There are two types of ischemic strokes which include:
- Thrombotic Stroke This type of stroke occurs when a blood clot or thrombus forms in one or more of the arteries which supply the brain with blood. These are typically caused by a fatty deposited build up in the arteries causing the blood flow to reduce.
- Embolic Stroke This type of stroke occurs when a blood clot or another form of debris forms away from the brain and is carried through the blood stream until it becomes lodged in the narrow arteries of the brain. This form of blood clot is known as an embolus.
A hemorrhagic stroke happens when a blood vessel to the brain begins to leak or ruptures. This can be caused by high blood pressure or weak spots in the blood vessels. Hemorrhagic stokes come in two different forms which include:
- Intracerebral Hemorrhage – This occurs when a blood vessel in the brain burst and begins spilling into the surrounding brain tissues, causing damage to the brain cells. Some causes of intracerebral hemorrhaging include; high blood pressure, vascular malformations, trauma, blood thinning medications, and other conditions which cause hemorrhaging.
- Subarachnoid Hemorrhage This occurs when an artery at or near the surface of the brain bursts and spills into the area between the surface of the brain and the skull. This type of hemorrhage is typically signaled by a sudden headache. This is typically caused by a rupture of an aneurysm in the brain.
Transient Ischemic Attack
A transient ischemic attack is referred to as a mini-stroke due to the fact that symptoms are similar to those individuals have during a stroke. This occurs when blood supply is temporarily decreased to part of the brain and typically lasts less than five minutes. A TIA is caused when a blood clot or debris is blocking the blood flow to the brain, while it does not leave lasting symptoms as the blockage is only temporary.
It is highly recommended to seek immediate medical attention even if all of your stroke symptoms seem to be cleared. This medical attention can prevent a larger stroke from occurring down the road and also provide you with medical documents, which are needed to receive workers compensation.

Phillips Law Group provides a collaborative environment in which both attorneys and staff work together to achieve the best outcome for clients. As an attorney here at PLG, I’m lucky to be surrounded by seasoned attorneys and knowledgeable staff that share my enthusiasm for helping accident victims. The team here at PLG treats clients with respect and empathy while fighting hard to get the results they deserve.
Thank you Phillips Law Group for all the support and back to school assistance we appreciate it.
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.
Sophia H is very helpful.
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!
Jasmine Delgado is an amazing paralegal. She was patient, kind and extremely knowledgeable. Highly recommend 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.
Jasmine , did a great job . Highly recommend!!!!!
I’ve been working at Phillips Law Group for nearly four years and I can confidently say this is the best personal injury firm in Arizona to work for. The firm is the best for numerous reasons but to start, Phillips Law Group gives employees opportunities for promotions and growth. I started working within the settlement department, moved to a paralegal assistant and grew to be a pre-litigation paralegal with my own case load. Each attorney I have worked for is extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and easy to talk to. Secondly, I love how Phillips Law shows appreciation for employees. They host Friday Zoom Huddles giving out PTO, goodie bags, special shout outs, bonuses and gift cards. They also host extravagant holiday parties and fun contests during the Holidays! Lastly, the firm cares about giving back to the community, which is a trait I value as well. It’s rewarding to see a fast paced firm taking time out of their busy day to pay it forward. I would highly recommend working at Phillips Law Group!
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.
