Can a locksmith duplicate my car key if it's bent or damaged?

I wedged my key in the door of my GMC Terrain and now it's broken. Will a locksmith still be able to decode it?

“Yes, a reliable locksmith should be able to help you with replacing a bent or broken car key.
If they can’t copy your original key because it’s too damaged, you may need to make a new key. In order to do so, you will need to provide the:
  • Vehicle Identification Number (VIN)
  • proof of ownership
  • make and model of your vehicle
If your car is under warranty or a dealership is nearby, they can also help with this.
Most service center dealerships have the ability to make a new key for a car as long as proof of ownership is provided.”
