Default Help identify problem with screen

Hi! I recently had an accident with my Nexus 4. I dropped it from a coffee table, less than half meter high, and the touch screen stopped responding at the first half centimeter of the top.... I couldn't swipe the status bar down... Etc....
My home insurance took care of it and a technician replaced it with another screen.
I see some strange shadows now with the new screen, mostly on clear images..... More if it's just white. Not noticeable at all on black or dark images... See the attachments to get an idea.
Of course, I'm going to demand another replacement to my insurance and complain about the current result, but I guess maybe someone could tell me which could be the reason for this happening.... Bad screen or assembly screw-up by the tech crew?
