I took a turn and for some reason my traction control shut off and still doesn't come on, but my car slid at about 15km'h and banged both sides of the wheels while I was counter steering and now the alignment is messed up along with the tires both very slightly pointing in opposite directions. Do you have an idea on how much it will cost me? And it would be appreciated if you have any advice I could use about the traction control, that if it was my fault or the fault of the car?

As far as the TC, most likely you damaged an ABS sensor on one of the wheels or the wiring is disconnected or damaged. That will cause the TC not to work.

As far as the tires, what you need to do is have the vehicle checked for alignment. At that time, the mechanic will need to check all steering components to make sure none are damaged, such as tie rods, ball joints. If all are good, then have an alignment done.
