No repercussions after painful incident

Last summer, I went hiking with friends at the Parc St. Cloud on the outskirts of Paris. I traveled by Metro to meet them, and three stops before the terminus where I was to get off, almost everyone was disembarking to cross the platform to get on a different train. 

Finally, I decided to follow everyone else. But just as I put my head in the doorway of the new train to ask, “Is this train going to St. Cloud?” the heavy doors slammed shut on my head, on both temples. Metro doors close very quickly and forcefully, but stop a few inches before closing completely to allow people to pull their coats and purses from the small opening that remains. Well, my head is wider than those few inches, so—unlike subway and elevator doors in the United States that pop open when they come into contact with something—these doors continued to press harder to close.
