Motor Vehicle Accidents, when immediate medical attention is required, send the victims to Emergency Rooms which generally are not staffed or equipped to manage the longer term sequelae, and management and the often debilitating effects of a concussion. Additionally, many of the symptoms of a TBI do not present immediately and may not prompt the appropriate diagnostic and therapeutic algorithms.
