My 13yr was in a car accident, her airbag deployed and hit her right thigh. She cannot walk after 10 days but no fractures show up. What could it be?

In brief: Bruised Muscle

Air bag deployment can cause local powder burn, bruising- visible.
The impact itself can cause bruised muscle and ligaments may not be visible in xray. Mri will show. Aleve, (naproxen) motrin, heat will help. Fu with pmd.
