Here are 4 common physical deficits of a brain injury caused by a medication error or drug overdose:
- weakness of limbs (quadriparesis);
- lack of coordination (ataxia);

These are just some of the physical problems that may result from a brain injury. Some of these could result in temporary or permanent disability. They can also lead to expensive medical bills, missed time from work and other losses.
