  post locked   Driver door won't open  

I got hit by a car a few weeks ago, when the accident first happened the door opened just fine from the inside but not from the outside because the door got dented. The car was not driven for about a week or two after the accident but then my dad drove it. After he drove it, the door no longer opens from the inside (i think he might have tried to pull too hard on the exterior handle). I was wondering if there's any way we can fix this before taking it to a shop.

Nothing can be done until the door is opened so that is the first project.

Once the door is opened, the door panel can be removed and the insides accessed to determine what it needs.

I'm afraid opening the door will be difficult and you will need a pro to do that for you, if he can.
