Difficult. Very specialised parts, probably only available in quantity
through industrial channels. Unlikely to be available retail.

Is this a laptop or monitor? If laptop, manufacturer spares may be
available through repairs channels; whether that is of economic interest
remains to be seen. If a monitor, basically forget it.

What was the monitor worth before is was subjected to high
accelerations?

You probably have only two options:

1) Swear, shrug your shoulders, and buy a new monitor.

2) Buy a broken one from someone else that has an intact LCD panel but
stuffed PSU, backlight, whatever, and engage in from-two-make-one
surgery.
