Did you undergo a sudden deceleration (stop) while riding in a car?  

A anticoagulant like warfarin can case unusual bleeding/bruising, but if that happens one needs to discuss the causes with their doctor.  If you were in a traffic accident and that caused the bruises it seems wise to me to seek medical evaluation - perhaps the emergency room in a hospital.

I think it would be a good idea to talk to your Dr. right away.  How long have you been on Warfarin?  And how often do you get your INR checked? It might be erratic.
