Question ball joint? tie rod? HELP!

about 2 weeks ago i dodged a deer and jumped a curb pretty hard.. I blew 3 of my tires and scraped up the rims pretty badly. I just got new tires and rims yesterday and after putting them on and trying to drive... the front passenger wheel is pointing inward, and when I drive on it it seems to "bend" (the top of the tire is poking OUT and the bottom of the tire seems to be "bending" underneath the car... If that makes any sense?? WHAT IS IT?! How do I fix it? What will it cost me? Can I drive on it? THANKS!!!!!

Take it to an alignment shop.
If they can not get the alignment within specs
then they should be able to tell you what needs replacing
and a cost estimate.
