A daughter-in-law living with me has no car and no car insurance. I have been transporting her since she has no car. She wants to sue me for a whip-lash injury that occurred because I stopped suddenly to avoid a collision. I contend she has no case, since there was no accident, and since I avoided further serious injury by avoiding a collision.

The post doesn't seem to ask a question. However, generally speaking, to prevail in an auto accident case in Maryland the plaintiff needs to establish negligence (in other words that the defendant drove in some way a reasonably careful person wouldn't have (such as by speeding, not paying attention, following too closely, etc.)
An online post can really only offer general information and not specific legal advice - if you are sued or suit is threatened you may wish to talk with an attorney who can review the specific facts at issue and offer an opinion.
