This occurrence may not be a bruise after all, since bruises usually resolve in a matter of days, the longest is two weeks. This long and lasting bruise may actually be skin discolorations brought about by post-inflammatory changes. If this were a real bruise (or hematoma), this can be a permanent soft tissue injury from the previous trauma. Uncommonly, problems with coagulation (blood to thin) may present this way, especially those who are receiving medications such as coumadin or heparin.
