Western Digital Passport i/o device error

hello everyone, I just bought my external hdd which is a WD Passport 500Gb. I have been using it for more than a month but unfortunately it was accidentally dropped from the top of my CPU. it wasn't very high right but now I can't even access my drive.
windows said it needs to be initialized but it failed to do it. I tried to repair it but no luck at all. it doesn't have a drive letter at the disk management. the drive isn't showing at my computer but the usb notification is showing at the notification bar. now, how if I try to claim its warranty since its just a month old from me. is it possible?
