Hello, my name is***** am a qualified lawyer and I will be assisting you with your question today.
Just to clarify - has any of her car been damaged? Did she suffer any injuries?
Was the child seat damaged?
Ok well I do not see what exactly she is claiming for here. Just because she does not have a proper seat in the car and is exposed at extra risk due to potential accidents is not your problem. She can only pursue you for any damage which you have caused, such as damage to the car or anything in it, or injury to the driver. It does not appear any damage was caused or that any injury was suffered so it looks like they are just trying to take advantage of this incident and make some money out of you, especially as they are requesting this to be done on the side. I certainly would not pay them anything and tell them that if they want to claim for an damage they must supply proof and even take you to court to prove that is the case. I don’t see them going that far to be honest.

No you do not, the legal requirement is that you stopped at the site of an accident - if she wanted your details then she should have asked them at the time, but now you do not have to give her your car reg. It does not stop her gong further to find that though, even going to the police but hopefully she won't. Hope this clarifies?
If she child seat was not damaged she cannot claim, so until she provides you with evidence of the damage and how it was caused by you, do not give her any details
