Seeking journal article to state the obvious

It seems to be common knowledge that elderly people, or others who are subject to more falls, will sustain more fractures than the rest of the population, and will have increased morbidity as a result. What I am looking for is an authoritative journal article (abstract or title is fine), preferably from an orthopaedic publication, stating the above.

I can find lots of articles talking about what causes falls, how to prevent them, and how to treat individuals with fracture as a result of falling, but nothing that states concisely the point summarized above.
Can any scientifically-minded MeFites point me in the right direction?
