    The limb looks like it would be ok. But it is hard to tell from that pic on how deep the damage is. I personally would bring it to a martin dealer and have him to look at it. This will give you an idea on what you have to fix and what not.

    Thumbs up rh stage 2

    All said , looks like u lucked out fer sure .had mine let loose at full draw , what a exciting experience fer sure , hope it never happens again , heard a noise and BAM!!!! stuff wacked me in the head { that prob was a good thing i think better now lol } even though the string wasn't even a year old yet, . i look at it regularly now and have plans on changing out yearly as for the damage dont second chance it take it to a bow shop , or send it back to martin that might be your best bet it might be warrantied

    Well looks like your in a bit of delima.....
    As you can see the red arrow looks like that limb has stated a splinter / crack.. looks like it may need replaced have it check out.. an then YOU decide if you want to risk it if they say its fine.

    Red circle shows your cam dent....this is another tuff one...I have seen and fixed, dents like this but never that bad.... it takes alot of carefull filing with jewelers file, and some very fine sand paper. to remove the lump in string grove.. no not try to bend it back, you will mostlikely just break it off..

    befor you even try to fix that dent be sure cam is still stright...may have tweaked it a bit
