Default Had an accident a year ago, now problems with vehicle

My truck left the road last winter due to the icy conditions and I ended up moving the entire passenger wheel back 3" when I hit a large rock.

The insurance company fixed it, which included all new parts on the passenger side, right down to the rim. The frame was also "tweaked" so they straightened that out.

Now, just about 1 year to the day later, the carrier bearings in my front differential axle are shot on the passenger side, which took the hit a year ago.

How do I go about getting the insurance company to fix this? My mechanic warned me at the time that any type of damage to the front axle wouldnt show for awhile.

The truck is a 2000 GMC Sierra 4x4.

Thanks for any input here.
