The answer really is the thing you said you don't want to do - hire an attorney. When someone doesn't have an attorney in this situation, insurance adjusters/potential defendants/etc often do not take it seriously. If you don't want to hire an attorney I suggest filing a lawsuit, though again if you do that on your own you won't get far.See question

A bank is suing me for nonpayment of a loan which matured over 5 years ago. The suit was filed more then 5 years after the loan matured. If I use an attorney to defend can I expect to get my legal fees paid and any other costs assuming I win?
Possibly legal fees. Probably not punitive damages. If it is beyond the statute of limitations you can file a motion to dismiss in lieu of an answer and it really would not require a lot of time and legal fees.See question

You will need to probate her estate. As her spouse you will be entitled to her assets, and you can be the personal representative. Only after you are appointed personal representative can you take control of her assets (such as her account) and disperse them from the estate.See question
