How long does it take for a skull fracture to heal?

Skull fractures take a few months to heal. When fracturing the skull the healing process takes a lot longer than any other fracture, like a fracture in the wrist or foot. Because of how much was damage and depending on the area of the fracture and the extent of the damage, the healing process could take up to a year, and in some cases even longer. Once you fracture your skull the healing process also includes the healing of the brain itself. You can't just fracture the skull and get on with your life. Depending on the force that fractured your skull you can end up with memory loss, brain damage, and other nerve problems.
