How about your phone?

According to a new study that was recently put out, there has been a spike in U.S. emergency room visits for minor injuries, and most of the causes were thanks to phones.

Some injuries were thanks to phones being thrown, while other injuries were caused by texting and walking.

Although no one was seriously hospitalized, experts are warning this is a serious issue.

The study, according to WILX, shows that emergency room data spiked after 2006, which also just so happens to be when some of the first smartphones were introduced.
