Unhappy rear brake light

Pulled my bike back in the garage after a short ride.Put it up on the rear stand and for some reason the bike tipped over on the right side. I WAS PISSED! Picked the bike up and saw that the mirror was broken and a scratch in the rear cowel sticker. Not to bad, I had an extra set of mirrors and I'll get the sticker fixed. Now my rear brake light won't work when I press the pedal. It's not bent and the light works when the front is pulled. What happened and how can I fix it?

Try pulling on the spring or plunger to the switch and see if it comes on.
It might have gotten knocked out of adjustment.
The switch has threaded knob to adjust engagement point.
