In brief: Bruised nerve

You have not mentioned the duration of the symptoms or when the injury occured.
Injury to the nerve at the wrist can cause tingling and numbness in the hand. Use a wrist splint to rest the wrist. If it has been more than a week after injury then i suggest you see a neurologist. You may need corticosteroids to reduce swelling around the nerve.
