We were at a red light and I very slowly bumped another car in the back. There was no damage and she said she wouldn't come after me so we left the scene. A few days later, she wants $200 now because she said her bumper got "pushed in" and the next time someone rear ends her, it's gonna fall off or something like that, complete bs but whatever.
Anyways, I'm at fault here and she has the upper hand. She can literally say anything about the rear of the car and blame it on me couldn't she? I noticed she had some marks on the back of her car (not related to our incident) and she could pin it on me if she wanted to, right?
Do I even try to go determine whether our crash caused any damage by taking it to a repair shop? Or just pay $200? How do I protect myself so she can't keep coming after me or my insurance for whatever reason, a release of claims?

if she were to make claims then the proper authorities will have to investigate said claims to prove they are correct. they won't just blindly listen to her and come after you.
if you really just slowly bumped her rear bumper, there is no way its on the verge of falling out, most likely.
I'd get some legit legal advice for free if you can, just internet search some firms that specialize in traffic collisions, and get as much information as you can out of them, they can be very resourceful free of cost.0
