Rain sensor - how to check it..

In the dark with your side lights or main lights on..

Move wiper stalk to first position..

Get out and view car from the front and look to the windscreen ( you should see the sensor light in the top middle of the screen - think it's orange or yellow glow ) put your hand over the light and the wipers should work ( be careful not to get your hand clobbered though..

If not working check inside the rear view mirror assembly for damage..

Was the windscreen replaced ?

For the radio aerial ( as said above )

The aerial grid is located:
 at the top of the rear screen on saloon models,
 on the rear right quarter panel window on estate
This system needs an amplifier fed via the radio, which
is located:
 under the tailgate lining on saloon models,
 under the rear right lining on estate models.

Both could be judged as common parts which do fail BUT I feel that the accident in this case would have caused the failure do to poor rebuild / refitting work or possible shock loading..
