I thought that I broke it, but only smashed it and have a dark blue toenail and a big toe that is really swollen.

I can't imagine what would have happened without proper boots.
It doesn't look like trials boots really provide any foot protection though. If anything a good pair of work boots provides more foot protection than a trials boot. So in this case you would have been better off in an MX boot or steel toed workboot.
