Your mother certainly has the ability to revoke her Power of Attorney. She needs to sign a replication of Power of Attorney and specifically indicate that your sibling has not power over any of her property including the address of her home.

The title of the case is not important, what is important is how the Judge will rule in regard to a court order and distribution and allocation of the asset or assets. If you really want to re-title the litigation, probably easiest way would be to dismiss the original case without prejudice and refile with the name you desire to use; although, it really would just be a waste of money and would not accomplish anything other than the goal you decided you want to seek out.
Generally, to recover attorneys fees and costs there must be a provision in the contract, outside the facts of other statutory exceptions which you probably do not fall within.

You, your lawyer or investigator may want to talk to the percipient witnesses to the accident and get their statements. We had a case where the number one witness traveling immediately behind our client, witnessed the accident, gave a statement to the police that was not correct. After she was interviewed, she agreed to sign a Statement of facts under penalty of perjury telling the truth.

Yes, you do have legal rights against the insurance carrier. Your faced with major losses regarding your vehicle, liability to the other party and a police report against you. With your present facts I would very seriously consider immediately consulting with an attorney in person so that individual can review the insurance policy, interact with the insurance company and review the police report.
Your previous counsel had advised you that your conveyance of your home into a trust with a successor beneficiary other than yourself after your demise would not trigger a tax reassessment.
