2001 Jetta 1.8L Turbo oil leak

I hit something hard in the road (rock, metal) all the oil has leaked out. I see a "Case" below the engine while looking under the front of the car. The "case" has a dent and small crack. Do I have a repair option, if not, does anyone know the actual name of this part/part#? Thank You!

    That is an Audi engine with ALUMINUM oil-pan. Aluminum tends to crack instead of dent/bend.

    As long as you shut-down the engine IMMEDIATELY after the oil-lite came back on, then the oil-pan can be replaced and your engine should be just fine.
