When I got a rugged phone case, I didn't have to worry my head about it falling. This doesn't mean that I would toss it off a skyscraper. It won't survive the fall.
If you want your phone to be in great condition, you should consider getting this. This type of LEGO phone case is known to have air pockets, as well as reinforced corners. These features ensure that the risk of the phone being damaged is clamped down.

Yes, you read that right. This will take care of how bulky it is.
Some rugged cases are known to shield every part of the phone, especially the touchscreen and buttons. Some cover only the back.

This is because they become harder to press, and their sensitivity level is reduced respectively.
If you can't tolerate these, you may not want a rugged case. Like earlier mentioned, if you prefer functionality over style, this may be the one for you. If you are clumsy like I am, this is the one for you.
You should consider looking at the IP (Ingress Protection) rating. This allows you to know if the case can stand the test of time against dust and water. They usually have different ratings.
You may across some case products that have decided to use military standards in making theirs. If you come across such, they are usually expensive because they have MIL-STD-810 certification.
