Brain Injury Causes and Symptoms

The following are some examples of medical malpractice that can cause injury to the brain:

  • Improper use of anesthesia
  • Over-medication
  • Failure to diagnose tumors and aneurysms
  • Botched brain surgery
  • Infection resulting from surgery
  • Hypoxia (decreased oxygen supply to the brain)

Serious brain injury can result in loss of consciousness, paralysis, disability, or death. Symptoms of brain injury can include headache, fatigue, difficulty concentrating, memory loss, mood changes, dizziness, blurred vision, and nausea.

How to Tell if Your Child Has a Brain Injury

You should get a medical evaluation as soon as possible if these symptoms appear.
