Door handles are simple latch mechanisms. You will need to replicate the lever arm (handle). It's hard to say without seeing pictures of the broken handle, but you should be able to grab the bracket (that the handle attaches to) with some plyers and give it a good pull. If you have the grip strength, it should work. If that doesn't work you could try a locksmith. Last resort is a mechanic.
