May have damaged the internal door switch in the door latch assembly, will it work with the passenger door? If it does, then for sure the latch switch is suspect.

Could have also have activated the security system when you slammed the door, and with a damaged door switch the reset procedure won't work. so if you can't get it started then it will have to be towed to a shop you trust or the (UGGH) dealer.
