My touch screen doesn't work after dropping it?

My touch screen doesn't work after dropping it?

My floors are concrete covered by wood paneling. My phone (LG Optimus G) slipped off of my bed and landed face first, completely shattering the screen. It turns on and off and the screen is normal looking, but the touch doesn't work anymore. I can't unlock it or anything. Can I get it fixed or is it just cheaper and easier to replace it? Will my warranty and/or insurance on it cover it?

"The problem is that your digitizer is broken. It is repairable. I've done this repair for two different customers. The charge for the repair will completely depend on who you take the unit to. I do not think that the manufacturer warranty will cover it, but if you are paying for insurance, physical damage should be covered. It completely depends on what kind of insurance you have on the device. Hopefully your insurance will cover this incident. If not, seek a local repair shop and get a quote. I'm not sure where you're located, but you can email me for a quote as well at info@mr-geek.com. Good luck!

Update

There are several models of the Optimus G. I have been able to find replacement components on Amazon.com by searching for ""LG Optimus G digitizer LCD"" which brings up several purchase options for either the LCD by itself, the digitizer by itself or both of them together."

Same thing happened to me. It's like it is frozen. The screen didn't break when I dropped the phone but the digits don't work so can't get into the phone because the password #'s can't be pressed. What do I do?
