If injured to due a faulty car repair is the repair shop responsible?

Question Details: The rubber brake pad cover came off after being repaired a few months previously. This caused bare metal brake and my foot slipped on gas and I hit a tree. The air bags didn't deploy either. I had to have 2 surgeries and spent 6 weeks in the hospital/rehab. I still have possibly 3 more weeks. Who is responsible for my injuries? The doctor said that if the air bags had deployed, my neck surgery would have been unnecessary.
