Unless you are claiming demonic possession...
...it is unlikely that an inanimate object tried to kill you
Your insurance carrier has the absolute responsibility to repair your car to a safe condition post-accident. They are obligated to return it to approximately the same condition it was prior to the accident. If you have evidence that the wheel bearings were replaced a short time prior to the accident and have now failed, for what you believe to be an accident-related cause, then the insurance company needs to re-open your claim and INVESTIGATE whether they need to make additional accident-related repairs. They can't just decline to participate: if they do you have a potential "bad faith" claim against them. All the insurance companies I have dealt with are very aware of the issue of "bad faith" as it can be very expen$ive to ignore. Most companies (& most repair shops) GUARANTEE accident-related repairs, often for the life of the car.
The information & evidence YOU assemble may greatly help or hinder this.
What work was done to the suspension/steering/wheels when the original work was done? Was the car inspected by a Dealer? Their shop or your shop?
This can go on ad infinitum...
