Dr. Jeffrey Kass
Podiatry
In brief: Ouch
That would depend on the damage.
I would tend to think you will be okay. I would ice it immediately and as much as possible. Unless the latop was very heavy and the distance it traveled was long, you should be okay with minimal damage. Was their bleeding of any kind? Is the nail broken or anything? These clues would help aid the prognosis.
