Need Help Quick

A couple of weeks ago I got my brakes changed and the mechanics told me I had a loose bolt but i didn't think anything of it (stupid mistake) So after work one day I was driving home and i heard horrible scraping and clunking noises so when I got home i found this. I know nothing at all about the suspension parts so if anyone could tell me what is broken I would appreciate. I need to get this fixed within the next day or two.
It is just laying to the side instead of what it should.

also known as endlink. or stabilizer link.doesnt look like it did any damage to the bracket on the strut. but id still look at it. and i would replace both sides if it were mine. they are pretty cheap.

endlink, easy fix but let me get this straight the mechanic told you, you had a bolt loose, did they offer or even tighten it back up? If not WTF, I would not go back to them.

thanks so much for the help everybody!! And I went to a Hibdon's for my brakes and the guy who worked on my car said he noticed a bolt was loose on both sides but he already put the tire back on the driver side so he wasn't going to take it off again. Idk why he didnt, im sure it would have taken him like 5 minutes tops.

I would tell them they just lost a customer, this is why mechanics get a bad name, that is nothing but HALF ASSED WORK.
