Seat Belt problem #1

My car was in a collision where the driver of car 1 was making a turn into the main street , she turned too wide and could not complete the turn and decided to back up. . She slammed into my car ,damage was left front bumper ,broken parking light, damage left front fender , xenon headlight module,(causes the left head light to turn of sometimes) and the air bag light came on , diagnosis found drivers seat belt tensioner fault ,since there was the impact on the drivers side. The driver of car 1 was cited for he incident and also for driving on a learners permit alone. State farm only covered the body repair and declined the repair of the air bag and the head light. I am concerned about the safety of any one inside this car if there was any reason for the deployment of the air bag and it did not deploy at the time. My car was in perfect condition before this accident. I would like to have my car repaired and feel safe driving.
