I am so sorry if you are going through issues. Injury can often do that. You should not do anything rash. Those who love you depend on you. There are many people who can help you through your difficulties, including myself. You may need particularized help that you have not gotten yet that can make the situation much better.
That is a complex question and depends on facts not presented and that need to be discussed with an attorney. I think most attorneys would tell you that without...
Yes, it is possible. The tortfeasor or his insurance company could be playing "hard ball" to try to make it seem like a rear end accident was partly or fully your fault. If he was DUI, my thought is that this i sa dangerous tactic for him that could backfire..
The agreement covers you even if you are listed in it under your maiden name. However, such agreements must be reasonable in time, space, and matter. 5 years and the tri county region seems manifestly broad for someone who appears to be a low level manger paid $9 an hour. In fact, 1-2 years is probably too broad in time and more than 1 hour drive seems too broad in space (area).

I assume your are the Executor. You have a duty to work in the best interests of the estate. One would have to know why a quick sale is necessarily on the best interest of the estate. You should consult an estates attorney before you take this action. My guess is he or she may advise you to do some actions short of 20% off depending on the circumstance or, alternatively, to get letters from real estate professionals indicating why such action is in the estate's best interest.
This would most likely be treated as a civil matter. It violates a civil law, the Wage Payment and Collection Law, for your employer not to pay you on your "regular pay day." You can sue the employer and get attorneys fees and liquidated damages on top of what you are owed.
