A: I am not sure why your Mother-in-Law's insurer is refusing to pay. If the car has "full" coverage there should be coverage for this accident. Also, even if the other driver was uninsured - if there is full coverage, there would be uninsured motorist coverage as well.

You may need to ask for clarification as to why there is no coverage or uninsured motorist coverage.
