Auto Liability

My car was hit Feb. 2004 while parked in a parking lot. I had the car towed to the dealer where I purchased the car, they had the car for about 1 month. When I got home I checked it out and noticed work was not complete and the replacement bumper was the wrong style. I have been in contact with various people associated with the dealership and they agree that the wrong bumper was used but they haven't done anything in regards to correcting the problem. This past Jan. 2005 I slid on a patch of ice and hit a concrete medium on the PA Turnpike. The mechanic that did the repairs told me that the alignment was way out of whack and was most likely a contributing factor in the accident, when I informed him about the previous accident involving my car he asked if the alignment was checked and I told him no, he implied that it should have been. I had to replace a tierod on the side that was originally hit. Is the dealership where I had the work done liable for the recent accident I was involved and should I contact the insurance company and let them know that they paid for work that was not completed. Fortunately no one was injured but I most likely am facing an increase in my insurance and I have to contest a citation I received.
