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.

Although my accident was fortunately not a major one, The Phillips Law Group AZ treated it as such. Their staff, specifically Mr Juan Roque was very professional, courteous and most importantly very informative. Mr Roque's attentive service was phenomenal and I highly recommend this firm!
I was recently served court documents that I was being sued from an accident that happened years ago. For someone who has never been through something like this and not familiar with the court lingo or where to even begin, it was very frustrating and stressful. I reached out to a family member who knew Tracy Laskos and the great reputation of Phillips Law Group and within the hours of the initial call for help, I had a direct number to Lead Attorney Nassar. Nassar heard my case and almost instantly put me at ease by explaining the process and how easy it was to handle. Nassar spoke to me like he was a friend, not like I was a client. I am so grateful to Tracy, Nasar and of course my cousin Stephanie for helping out and giving me the direction that I needed to get through this situation. I plan on referring my friends, family and patients that are in need of a personal injury Attorney to Phillips Law Group. Thank you!!
Jasmine Delgado is an amazing paralegal. She was patient, kind and extremely knowledgeable. Highly recommend Phillips law group
The lawyers here are of top quality. Especially Trey Dayes, who was always respectful and hard-working.
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!
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.
A friend of mine recommended Phillips Law and I’m so grateful, because they were so wonderful, so down to earth, so professional. I felt like they were family.
Liz Gonzales was great!!!!
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.
Thank you Phillips Law Group for all the support and back to school assistance we appreciate it.
