Long story short, i had a small accident today and managed to scrape the back of the other persons car i took a photo of the damage and shes just phoned saying her dashboard is ruined. Is tht even possible? Considering i bumped into the back of the car. She wants to go through insurance although iv suggested doing it privately

Without knowing the full context and set of circumstances of the collision, I do not think that would even be possible. One possible theory from the evidence you described is that they are trying to land a greater insurance settlement, based on the fact that you somehow damaged the front and the back. I'm not an insurance expert but I'm pretty sure they would need a form of evidence to justify it.

Well you could reply saying "Do you want to settle the damage for the back, as that's all I caused as far as I'm concerned", and if she refuses then just do nothing. Wait until SHE gets the insurance company involved, and then respond to them. But I wouldn't get them involved BEFORE her, because she is the one that would need to provide evidence. It's possible she could be trying to scam you but don't take my word for it.

also you are supposed to report the accident to the police within 24 hours.
