My car has an automatic transmission.

Hello - I would first check the wiring connector at the transmission for good contact and secure connection, and fuses for the transmission controller. It is possible that an internal speed sensor in the transmission has failed. I would recommend having the transmission fluid level checked (no dipstick) and the transmission diagnosed by a mobile, professional mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, who will come to your location, diagnose this problem, give you an accurate assessment of damage and cost estimate for repairs.
