Which is the correct sequence of steps to follow when changing lanes?

Check your mirrors and blind spots to ensure it's safe to change lanes. Signal your intention to change lanes at least 100 feet before making the move. Check again for any vehicles in your intended path, and smoothly steer into the new lane. Cancel your signal once you have completed the lane change and adjust your speed as needed.

Who is at fault if MV1 with trailer in the right lane is forced to merge into the left lane due to construction?

Unfortunately MV1 more than likely, you cannot enter any lane of traffic until safe to do so. So in this case, if were not safe, (other vehicles in the left lane), the thought would likely be you should've stopped and waited until the lane was clear and it was safe. You can't just change lanes (no matter what the reason) and hit a 'innocent' that was safely traveling and had possession of that lane. How could they possibly be at fault? Another argument would be how long ahead of this lane closing was it announced?

When you turn right onto a multi lane road which lane do you turn in to?

When you are in the far right lane, your turn should put you in the far right lane. Then, when safe, you can merge into the left lane to pass. This is for a right turn from a 2 or 4 lane onto a 2-or higher lane road.

If the lane you are driving ends should you accelerate into the next lane?

You should merge into the next lane when it is safe, and do not accelerate in front of another driver. That is a collision waiting to happen.You should merge into the lane by slowly applying the brakes, and when all drivers right next to you have passed, accelerate into the lane, but do not creep into the lane, otherwise the driver in the lane you are merging into will probably collide with you because he was going fast and you were going slow.Accelerating is fine when it is safe, but do not accelerate to get in before another driver can pass by.
