Well, if your pain is strictly due to the accident injury if it were arthritis it would most likey be considered as osteoarthritis. X-rays can generally see what type of damage is causing the pain in that case.

If you have other areas or joints involved you can have a CRP level done and RA factor tested for via blood tests. ANA test to rule out  lupus too.
