Accidents happen. If you can feel the scratch with your finger nail then its a deep scratch, will require filling and then polishing.
You can achieve some pretty impressive results with a cutting compound such as Menzera 203S which is a light to medium cut. Once polished out, protect with Collinite wax or similar. Speak to a detailing shop first, they will advise.
