Symptoms of Traumatic Brain Injury
How do you know if you or a loved one has suffered a traumatic brain injury?
Common symptoms of brain injury after the fact might include:
- Confusion / agitation
- Changes in cognition
- Fuzzy / foggy vision
- Increased fatigue
- Numbness in extremities
- Lack of coordination
- Severe migraine headaches
- Nausea and vomiting
- Slurred speech

Sometimes these types of injuries can be tough to diagnose. Symptoms may not show up immediately: They could begin to occur days, weeks, or even months after the event of the accident. For this reason, proving the injury can be difficult.

Hypoxic-Ischemic Encephalopathy (HIE)
Another brain injury that can have devastating consequences is Hypoxic/anoxic brain injury which is caused by restricted oxygen flow to brain tissue and can result in brain cell damage and conditions such as hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy (HIE). When medical professionals fail to act within the accepted standard of care during pregnancy and childbirth they greatly increase the chance for life-altering birth injuries like HIE.
