Thanks for writing to us.
A hematoma in the leg after an injury can happen due to a minor hairline fracture or a soft tissue injury. Since there is unbearable pain, It is best to get an MRI done for proper diagnosis. A bone injury is a likely possibility.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
