    In most cases a person cannot sue another for a cash gift. If there were stipulations attached to the gift, especially in writing, this can cause complications. The amount of the transfer will also be important in the eyes of the court. You should contact a lawyer to further explain the issues regrading your mother inlaw's potential case.

    As with most types of cases, there are time limitations for you to file any type of claim. Limitations exist on claims involving both property damage and personal injury. Furthermore, the strength of your claim depends on the evidence available including whether the driver received a citation for driving without a license and insurance, and what is on record in the police report.

    More information would be needed to determine whether or not legal action should be taken. Reviewing the lease, would be the first step.
