Switch off the supply to that cable at the breaker box. Then, using a different power source, cut a hole in the wall to reveal the damaged cable and inspect what you have done. The damage to the house caused by making the hole is far less of a concern than a damaged electrical wire buried in that wall which could start a fire.
