Unhappy My fingernail damaged

I work in contracting and had an incident where i had a drill slam into my pointer finger nail in the back right where the nail and the skin meet it bled quite badly and hurt for a few days and everything seemed alright at first. but after a while it began to swell and you could see a break in the nail. it has since swollen to over part of my nail and appears that the nail is no longer growing on one side.

my question is, can the root repair its self after possible major physical trauma, and would the fact that part of it growing shows that its not dead? in your opinion would i ever be able to get my fingernail back to a normalish state
