Damaged Nail Bed?

5 weeks ago I slammed my finger between two pieces of heavy metal - basically the equivalent of slamming it in a car door. The day after it happened I burned a tiny hole through the nail to drain the blood. After that however the nail bed has remained extremely purple. The nail is still growing and looks healthy, and does not show any signs of falling off, but the purple underneath the nail shows no signs of going away what so ever.

Have I permanently damaged my finger? It does not hurt, is no longer sensitive to the touch, but is just bright purple. Do I need to see a doctor?
