That's a terrible thing to happen! Wonder if collision/comprehensive insurance would cover it? I'm betting the repair or replacement cost would be far in excess of most deductibles.

Hope I'm wrong, and it's an easy fix.

That’s unfortunate…

Would you post a pic? Is the clear plastic lens/cover cracked or the actual TFT?

That looks like a stress fracture. In my searching it seems the only repair is full replacement....so faced with that why not try to carefully remove that screen and replace with something aftermarket? I bet once the screen is out (its glued in), you could muster a template and have someone either cut from acrylic or even tempered glass. The tech is there now and may be a fun thing to try? I know MANY are dealing with this so it could be the savior if you figured out a solution. I'd even go a tad thicker and with a more pliable acrylic. I dunno...just a thought
