Be thankful your lawyer is doing his job! Give him the info. In some cases, there may be additional coverage available to you under multiple policies in your household. It sounds like you have a good lawyer.
No one can do a deed in lieu unles someone gets title (and the bank agrees).
By my math, there is an estate with 140K in assets and 100K in debt. This is a case where the next of kin need to meet with a lawyer and determine what to do before doing anything. A possibility and I'd need a lot more information, is an administration and cutting a deal with the bank.
The other driver's insurance will obviously only pay up to the coverage she bought.
But there is good news, assuming you acted prudently. Because many people are underinsured, EVERY driver should carry a HIGH limit uninsured motorists coverage, and, if they lack health insurance, med-pay. Assuming you did this, the good news is your med pay pays your medical bills up to your policy limit, and you can go after your own UM coverage as well. Hopefully you have a lawyer as you should already...
If there is a judgment not covered by insurance. your future wages and assets are at risk. Additionally, they can cause your license to be suspended, even for life, until you pay. In some cases, if there is such a judgment, a bankruptcy can erase the bad effects. Before you get that far, your insurer has some responsibility to attempt to settle for the policy limits (or less).
This is the second time you posted the same question, and the answer does not change by reposting it. Yes, you backed up and you're at fault. And that is why you have insurance. If the other driver was hurt, your insurer defends you and pays claims. So stop worrying. (Note that his speeding and seat belt may weaken his claim in that your insurer may argue BOTH of you were negligent, but they'll deal with that, so stop worrying.)
Ms. Disalvo and Mr. Morgan have given you two great answers.
Let me add that I always caution people not to worry too much about the legal problems that people talk about when all they do is talk. It's not a problem until and unless someone files something in court (and it may or may not be a problem even then).
So don't stress over it. Hopefully you used a lawyer to file your probate papers. Let him or her know about this possible claim to cover your bases, but don't lose sleep.
There is no right to court appointed counsel in civil cases in Georgia, but let me stress that you NEED a lawyer and you need to get one ASAP. A lawyer may well affect the outcome.
If you cannot afford counsel, you may be able to get a pro bono lawyer through:

I am assuming your father died in Georgia (this answer will be inaccurate otherwise). Whether or not the will is probated, the law requires that it be filed with the probate court, and you can get a copy for a nominal charge from the clerk (I believe 50 cents a page).
You posted in the wrong part of AVVO. Your post has nothing to do with personal injury. I am attempting to move it to criminal law, and while your post is unclear it sounds like you were charged with forging a prescription which is a serious charge, and you need to get offline, and into a lawyer's office to hire counsel immediately.
