Thanks for the question.

Ideally any such injury should undergo clinical evaluation and investigated by Computed Tomography (CT) scan if needed.

You should watch for symptoms like headache, dizziness, ringing sensation in the ear, scalp swelling, bleeding through nose / mouth / ear, drowsiness or disorientation, etc. If there are no symptoms after 24 hours, then generally it is safe to say there has not been any significant injury.

Hope this answers your question. I will be available to answer any other concerns which you might have.
