I seemed to have bottomed out the okl pan and want to know how much to repair? I ran over the median avoiding something in the street and that occured

My car has 157000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

I would first recommend having the engine and under the vehicle inspected to see what all got damaged. If you damaged the oil pan then it may have also damaged the exhaust or subframe under engine that may affect the replacement of the oil pan.
