Re: Automobile accident

I did not say "immediately after".  I said "after".  "After" means ANY 
TIME after the given point.  Going to the hospital immediately after the 
accident would not have been a "choice" on your part. Blue Cross would 
have required it.  And if you refused then they would not have covered 
any complications resulting from the accident.  That is how insurance works.

>>         6. Following the accident, you continued to attend your
>>         gynecologist, who continued to do ultrasounds, and found no
>>         abnormalities.
>>         7. A few weeks after the accident we had a substantial

>>         d) you had been in a car accident a few weeks earlier.
>>         8. It was determined that the cause of the bleeding was from
