Sounds like OP has an SUV. Those don't open straight up like a car trunk, but open out backward. In grocery store parking lots, people generally walk near the parked cars while walking to/from the entrance, so as not to be in the way of the other cars going by looking for parking spaces. Sounds to me like this was a perfect storm of events that unfortunately combined at the most inopportune time. F the lady's life and F your life, OP.
28, I've seen how fast certain old people move. It wouldn't surprise me if one of them couldn't escape a slow moving car door. That being said, I'm not sure if the doors have enough force behind them to knock someone down. OP if she's is serious look and see if there are records of her suing other people over "accidents", some people actually make a career of this.
Why didn't you check if somebody was around? Though she doesn't really have any grounds to sue you, you should have apologised. Hope you did OP.
