Cops found the other driver at fault and even gave her a ticket. Too bad. Other driver's insur. told my fiance they weren't gonna pay because her being on the road at all constituted 1% of responsibility. And since she didn't have collision, her car was totalled and she didn't get a dime out of it.
her own insurance company fuched her on this deal, her correct response would have been to sue the individual who hit her, and his insurance company. If these facts were correct and she could not, there would be no reason for anyone to ever carry insurance in that state.

I would see to it that everyone in the family knows exactly what these people have done and are doing

The only thing you did wrong was to associate with idiots, relatives or not.
They are future darwin award winners and eventually will get what more of they deserve but you don't want to be there.
Stay away from people like that in the future.

But sometimes you don't know that until they ask you to hold their beer and "watch this"
