It is possible that the the fuel pump has been damaged but more likely if it was hit hard enough to shift the gas tank the wiring could be damaged. The fuel pump wiring is on top of the tank. These are both possible. However, a lot of cars have safety features to shut off fuel pump to prevent fire in case of accident. Look somewhere in the trunk, maybe under the carpet for a reset switch. Check your owners manual or ask a mechanic to be sure. *** It's likely the inertia swich. They are usually located in the trunk. In event of a hard impact switch will disable the fuel pump so fuel isn't spilled if a line is ruptured. The inertia switch acts much like a airbag sensor. They are usually the ball in cup magnet style. When the ball comes out of the cup the circuit is open and the fuel pump is shut off. All the inertia switchs that I've seen can be reset.
