UK criteria , in my opinion thy looking for something to don't pay compensation . Can I file case against them i US in US court
Accident or damage occurred there, suit is there. I don't see a way to file legitimately here. Talk to your lawyer in UK for assistance.

Yes, you can, but the defendant will object and the judge may not allow it. Generally, jurisdiction/venue is an issue for the defendant, not the plaintiff, so if you are willing to come over to prosecute your case, that might be acceptable.
Another issue is that you have a pending UK case. You cannot recover twice.
None of us are qualified to opine about UK law, so talk to your UK attorney about whether this is viable.
