Title:

horizontal 'lines' on screen, after a slight 'knock' to back

Text:

Hi, I recently managed to knock my phone against a low post in the street. I knocked the back of the phone whilst it was in my pocket. I've now noticed that there 'lines' at the bottom of the screen - I assume this is possibly due to a dodgy connection to the LCD matrix? 1. Do you think it's fixable [no other visible 'damage' to the screen? 2. or is it possible damage to the logic board? The 'lines' are on every screen and have the same colour - dark blue? They are even getting longer, though I don't use the phone now? Thanks in advance for any help - compassion ;^)
