See doctor: Hard to say without examining you. Seems very remote to the accident to be a clot related to accident however a new clot (DVT) needs to be rapidly excluded at your nearest urgent care clinic/Emergency department. Also if you are feverish with leg pains it would be important to rapidly exclude infection/cellulitis too. There are a variety of other possibilities too including vein dysfunction

See doctor : Pain and swelling could be related to the previous injury or could be a new thing . Please consult your doctor.
