If you have been charged by the police with assault, you can defend this on the basis that that you were being stopped from leaving and just pushed her out of the way. If you didn't see the alleged injuries you can certainly question these and ask for medical evidence. After all, she could have fallen later that evening, after you left. So you can defend any charges. If the police interview you, you would need to say what happened but deny any injury
