You should not have given him anything.
Get the vets to give you something in writing about what they say.
You are correct it is his word against yours and you should make sure that you keep your dog locked up so that if it happens again you have more evidence.
Unless there is evidence there is nothing that can be done by him.
If he sues it is his word against yours and the court will not be happy to deal with this type of matter.
He cannot do anything successfully without evidence.
But do not give him anymore money
I hope this makes sense and is of assistance.
