Complaint - Air Bags, Seat Belts

I EXPERIENCED A FRONT END COLLISION IN MY NEW 2012 PRIUS WITH 2,500 MILEAGE. THE COLLISION VEHICLE SPEED WAS NEARLY 30 MPH. THE SEAT BELT DID NOT RESTRAIN ME AND THE AIRBAG DID NOT DEPLOY. I WAS TAKEN TO THE HOSPITAL AND SUSTAINED A FRACTURED STERNUM DUE TO HITTING THE STEERING WHEEL AND WHIPLASH. THERE WAS SIGNIFICANT DAMAGE TO THE FRONT END OF THE VEHICLE. TOYOTA'S RESPONSE AFTER THEIR OWN INSPECTION WAS "OUR INSPECTION FOUND NO EVIDENCE OF A MANUFACTURING OR DESIGN DEFECT WITH THE AIRBAG OR SEAT BELTS."
