My half brother was hit and killed by a car in July of 2013 in Griffin, GA. I am now trying to get an estate to collect insurance money from the lady who hit and killed him! I have talked to the lady's insurance company and a claims lawyer they are telling me the insurance company is ready to write a check but they don't know who to send the check to because my brother didn't have an estate is this true do I need to establish an estate?My brother was never married nor did he have children. His mother is deceased but his father is living which is also my father, and my half brother has four siblings myself including, but my brothers aunt which is his deceased moms sister is trying to collect this insurance money can she do that? Is it even legal what she is trying to do seeing how my father is living? Wouldn't my father be the one who is entitled to any type of insurance money?
