If someone drove into a curb because they say that I pulled out in front and now they want me to pay for their damages, am I liable?

Question Details: I was driving my uncle's vehicle. I was not on his policy at the time and I pull out of a gas station. I stopped the car, because I heard a bang and thought that she hit me. She didn't hit me, though. She said that I pulled out in front of her, causing her to hit the curb. Why she just didn't slow down, I'm not sure but come to find out we share insurance companies. I tell them what happened and a few weeks later the woman asks me for payment, saying that she wasn't covered at the time. Then, 7 months later, my uncle got something in the mail saying that we owe the insurance company $800. Any course of action, considering that our vehicles didn't even collide?
