Accident, bruises on thighs, growing, getting darker, red and yellow patches. Normal symptoms?

Hi, I crashed my Bike on 8/31 and landed on the thin edge of a piece of sheet metal. I was wearing jeans so it didn t break the skin in a substantial way, but the bruises on my thighs continue to grow and get darker. the bruise on my left thigh now covers over a third of my thigh. Is this normal for a bruise or should I see a doctor? The bruises range in color from thick dark red patches down to yellow where it has recently spread.

Welcome to healthcare Magic!
The bruises are made of blood in the local site.
It is normal for them to change color, because hemoglobin gets denatured and mobilised.
Bruise is red initially then bluish then black then yellowish pink and lastly vanishes after about 21day in toto.
You do not need worry, just forget seeing it and it will be okay by itself.
Take care!
Wish you a great health!
