got rear ended, how bad is it

https://imgur.com/a/uu7un97

Basically i'm driving down a small street to run an errand and a car stops in front of me suddenly so I come to a COMPLETE stop just as the car in front. next thing I know I look into my rear view mirror and see someone just coming at me looking the complete other way and as you guessed, I get rear ended and pushed into the car in front of me. long story short visually I looks like my car took the most. the seatbelts locked up and can't be used at all. the back right sensor popped out but I put it back in. the car seems to drive fine but says front left collision service required, rear left and right collision service required. the back right sensor popped out but I put it back in. an someone tell me how bad this looks.

Sounds like a repair shop estimate is in order. They are usually free.

Shouldn’t the guy that rear ended you cover all of it.

apparently that was an initial check and that the rest would be given if the repair show found any more damages.. this is what state farm (we have the same insurance as the person who hit me) told my mother as its her car but honestly this doesn't make sense to me at all

UPDATE the insurance company now thinks that I ran into the back of the car in front of me and that the lady ran into the back of me. which didn't not happen at all I honestly feel like they are both trying some scam. plus my car is a 2017 and has collision prevention assist plus. which in my option would never allow something like to do of had happen in the first place especially going only 20-30 mph. does anyone know of anyway I can fight this or if im allowed to use the cars safety features to argue this

I would definitely put that case forward as these cars basically drive and stop themselves. You might find they don’t even realise this, so it makes a good point.
