Bleeding on head 14 days after surgery
You reported bleeding on your head 14 days after surgery fro trauma. I doubt that any significant damage is done if all of the crusts were off when the trauma occurred. I wrote a paper on this
Injury at 2 Weeks
You should see your doctor. It probably is ok if it was just a surface wound but the only way to know for sure is to either see your doctor in person or wait and see if there is normal growth there in a year.
Head Trauma following surgery
Trauma following 14 days of surgery should not lead to much of a damage but the best will be to get it ezmained from the doctor who operated upon you.

It is unfortunate you had an accident. You should get your wounds checked by your doctor.
It is unfortunate you had an accident. You should get your wounds checked by your doctor. One cannot gauge how bad your wounds are with photos.
the best way to determine the amount of damage to your scalp is to have an in person evaluation, best to be done with the surgeon who performed your procedure. You want to make sure you are having good wound care to that area to prevent infection. Since you were already shedding hair shafts from the procedure it may be impossible to tell if it will affect your final growth.
This could be ok
since it is far out from the procedure and you may only have some thinning in that area.
Remember to go in for follow ups if any concerns because not all transplants result in growth.
