  1. It's quite possible you broke it.
    They aren't designed to survive falls.
    if it's new you might be able to return it.
  2. Best answer
    If it's out of warranty you could try removing the drive from the case and installing it as an internal drive and see if it will work. If you are using a laptop then you could try removing the drive from the case and connect it to the laptop via a USB to SATA cable and see if it will work.
