Thanks for writing to health care magic.

Normally accidents do not cause fever unless there is a hematoma or a injury which gets infected.

Does your child have any other complaints?

Does she have any burning urination or frequency while passing urine?
Does she have any cough?
Does she have any loose stool etc?

Please reply in detail so that I can help you better.

Take care.
