I was in an accident with a boat trailer hitting my right knee from the left side. It swelled up hours later. Do I have a meniscus tear in my knee?

In brief: Can't tell

A lot of things can cause knee swelling.
If the injury does not improve over time, some form of imaging such as an MRI might given an answer.
