Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.
From what you have described here this sounds like the common fault of the door latch itself needing replaced.I have seen the latch fail several times before in the past and had to replace it for this issue here.Unfortunately when the door is stuck closed like this here there are only two options to get the door open to replace the latch.
First a lock smith can come out and use their tools to release the latch without damaging anything or the interior door paneling can be pulled off (which usually damages the paneling to where it would need repaired or replaced after this is done) to access the latch to open the door and then replace the latch.Unfortunately when the door is stuck closed like this here these are the only options.
