nothing too serious really. Just ride it and make sure it shifts and brakes like normal and everything should be fine. I would imagine the easiest semi-serious thing that could happen would be to bend the derailler hanger, so just check the rear derailler and make sure the peice it attaches to is still straight. Other than that I wouldn't sweat it too much

Usually a pedal and the handlebars soak it up.

It's a mountain bike, it's designed to crash and fall and do similar things.
