Sorry for the delay.
How long ago did this happen and any bruising of the ear or any hearing problem with it?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I was in the process of closing the door so there was a little force alplied_but not more than a few inches of force from my arm, the top corner of my door hit my ear and perhaps the tip of the door hit my scalp

OK. Doesn't sound like any real harm was done. You may have a bit more pain tomorrow but from what you've told me I personally wouldn't worry about this
