Complaint - Air Bags

I WAS REAR ENDED WHILE STOPPED, BY A VEHICLE REPORTED TO BE DOING 40 MPH. MY VEHICLE SUSTAINED REAR BUMPER DAMAGE FROM THE CAR HITTING MINE AND FRONT BUMPER / ENGINE COMPARTMENT DAMAGE FROM THE CAR I SUBSEQUENTLY HIT. TOTAL DAMAGE IN EXCESS OF $11,000. THE AIR BAG DID NOT DEPLOY, BUT I DIDN'T KNOW IF THE IMPACT WAS SEVERE ENOUGH TO ACTIVATE IT. HOWEVER, WHEN REVIEWING THE REPAIR INVOICE, I NOTICED THE AIR BAG SENSOR WAS REPLACED. APPARENTLY IT SHOULD HAVE ACTIVATED THE SYSTEM BUT DIDN'T.
