Later the accident was occured, he was joined in the hospital so following coveys the same meaning as after in this context.

If both after and following have same meaning why don't we use no improvement as option.

Here why can't we say after an accident.

And what's wrong in the usage than using following.

I think after will not be used here as it should be 'after meeting an accident'.

Sarfaraz said: (Dec 11, 2015)  
Because after is use in future.

After was right, but compared to following it was not because following which means contusion after, it might be after some time also.

After and following both give same answer. Why we cosider following as answer?

After just after (following) is better.
