Sad to see the state of the car. I would like to know how the accident occurred i.e was it a head-on hit or a side hit? Secondly which year did you buy the car? Have you checked if your car is under the official airbag issue recall from Honda? I am saying so because even my own Honda CITY was having defective airbag inflator for both driver and passenger side which were changed in ASC.

It is unfortunate that you met with an accident. I hope you and other passengers didn't had major injuries.

Did you wear seat belt when you met with an accident? Because airbag won't deploy otherwise.

Looks like the car was hit from side and less from the front. The airbag sensors are located inside the front corner members and it doesn't look like there has been a major hit on that spot. Can you check the condition of sensor and take a near picture if possible.

thanks for the reply akash ji
by looking at the condition cant we say that the airbags would have worked and the impact was quiet enough for thw sensors to work , well while driving the car was much less speed as the traffic signal was near , then a speeding truck came from behind but it crashed in a way that the car was whole in the air just only on one wheel that is the wheel opposite the driving side and rest of the car up in the air and tilted from front side damaging the front portion as well , my car is 2014 model , will be pleased for your reply...

Yeah damage has occurred on both side but still front corner members aka chassis wheel arch doesn't look like it has taken hit for sensor to trigger. I'm not sure thats why I asked to check sensor condition. Only by physical inspection we'll know why air bag didn't deploy.

Sabse pehle Mata Rani ka lakh lakh shukar ki aap sab theek ho. (Firstly thanks a million to Mata Rani that you’re fine.)
Please take this matter with the dealership also.
Which company's insurance do you have? Are they helpful? How much estimate did the garage make? Did the insurance company pay you any advance?
