I was involved in an accident in which I was rear ended by a vehicle traveling 45 mph which in turn caused me to slam into the vehicle in front of me. As a result of the accident, the drivers seat I was sitting on was bent and moved back. The air bag device under the seat was detached and damaged as a result of the accident. The accident was severe enough it should have deployed when I hit the car in front of me. When I questioned the dealership they stated it is normal for this to happen to the seat and for airbags not to deploy.
