Swelling, bruises, difficulty in walking afer automobile accident. Would kidney be damaged?

My boyfriend fell off his bike a week ago. he was really swollen the next day and had difficulty walking. we had him on anti-inflamatory and we iced the area the first 2 days after the accident. about 3 days later a huge dark purple bruise appeared. the bruise has been spreading over the last few days. The bruise is still a deep deep purple and red color and there is still swelling . although less than what there was initially. i want him to see a Dr. he states because he is walking better and the swelling has gone down there is no need. He is still tender in the area. Is there a danger of internal bleeding or damage to the organs? we have watched his urine for signs of kidney damage and none so far. should i be concerned or should i let him ride this out?

Hi, you need to consult good orthopedician (bone specialist) and physician doctors for further evaluation. After doing certain xrays (if needed) and blood tests we can make sure everything is fine. God bless both of you.
