Regarding damage or bending at the fork tip, there is not so much information available however, HSE suggest that, if damage is present then only the fork manufacturer is qualified to advise upon, and indeed conduct, any repairs.  Their advice would be, if you are in any doubt, to either obtain advice from the fork manufacturer or replace it / them.
