And that's why you invest 30 bucks for a dashcam! Americans are notorious for sueing people for stupid reasons to get some easy cash! Also these scams are highly populair in China and Russia, just go to youtube and see for yourself!
Dash cams are useful! I recommend doing some research before deciding which one to get though. Mines a couple hundred (HD videos where you can see license plates, GPS enhanced that records speed, etc), but I rather pay that amount that a few thousand when someone decides to blame you when you're innocent, and/or pay even more than I already do for insurance.
Yeah, would there not be damage to your car? Where's the bruises on her? Being "mowed down" would have flung her or pushed her off the car onto the pavement. You had seriously better fight this, look for security footage and hire a lawyer. You could lose your licence and possibly get hit with an extreme bodily harm charge. When an accident happens and someone tries to pin it on you, stay calm and collected and try not to freak out, because if there is two people freaking out, they're going to side with the victim. Innocent until proven guilty.
I live in New York too. Even if OP really did hit her, even if she freaking died, if she wasn't at a crosswalk, he's innocent. It happened to someone on my street. Girl got hit by a car jay walking, she had severe injuries, and yet she ended up having to pay the driver for emotional distress because she was the one initially breaking the law.
