    ...Can you elaborate what you mean by "accident" in the first one though? I can't seem to connect...(and really need context for that one as well...-_-")

    Second one..."This seems to be my brother's homework... // but he begged for me to help out" (assuming that his brother is the one asking him...The sentence is actually written in passive voice, but I think "I was begged by him" sounds very awkward..."I was asked to help him" will be OK, as well...)

    Minus context, so don't take my translation for it though. ._."

    I think the passive in this sentence is the "suffering passive", which is a hard nuance to get across in English, so I think that's fine.

    Yeah, would love to help out, but as Ju-da-su said, it's a bit hard without context.

    そうなんスよ.... =その通りだ (= あなたの言う通りだ) 
    Just translate the phrase literally.
