welcome to health care magic and
thanks for the question.

Following every accident, an observation should generally be
made by a doctor to rule out the possibility of complications
especially internal hemorrhage which could be slow but gradual
and resulting in fatal consequences if not early identified. Rupture
of certain organs such as the spleen or kidneys could be mild or
stable at the onset and later becoming catastrophic.
However, the duration of the observation depends on the intensity
of the accident and the locations of the body involved etc. Following
evaluation, the the victim might be ask to stay further in the hospital
or could be discharged. Observation should continue after the
discharge and includes observing consciousness, pulse rate, color of
conjunctiva etc.
Thus i will recommend you see a doctor.
Best regards
