I backed into this woman's mailbox about eight months ago and now she wants me to pay for it. What am I legally/socially obligated to do?

I understand these things can take time (it was an old stone/brick mailbox, not fancy or anything), but eight months is a bit long to wait. I did say when this happened, as obviously it was my fault, that I'd pay for the repairs. But she handled the situation inappropriately and too timely, in my opinion. I'm generally very honest and nice, but there are exceptions.
Anyway, being the curious and neurotic person that I am, I'm wondering what sort of legal grounds she or I have.
