Blew trannie line

Just installed a trans cooler yesterday and stupid me didn't put a hose clamp on one of the lines. It ran all day until today when it popped the line going down the highway. I noticed the O/D light flashing so I pulled over and shut it down. I ran it maybe 10 to 15 seconds after noticing the O/D light flashing.

I put the hose back on and clamped it then put 6 qts. of fresh fluid in. It shifted a lot smoother after putting the new fluid in (no wide open runs yet) and then I went by a quick change place and had them flush the fluid (no filter change) and they added almost 2 more qts to it after the flush to bring the level up.

Think there might have been any damage? Trans pressure was reading about 48 PSI.
