What can an insurance company do to get their money back from an auto accident?

My 17 year old daughter caused an accident and we did not have liability insurance (by error). The insurance company said my husband and my daughter, now 18, has to pay $25,800. It also said if they do not it will suspend their licenses. I just want to know does this all sound right? My husband is working on an agreement for $166 a month but my daughter can not afford to pay much if anything.
