Well said, Dr Werner.

In brief: Yes

Your whole foot can swell after an ankle sprain.
And an auto accident can cause soft tissue injury in your foot as well. It takes about 3 months for swelling to completely resolve after this type of injury. However, if you have pain in the location of swelling it should be further evaluated.
