Legal Question in Civil Rights Law in New York

my boyfriends dog was leashed in his yard when a couple walked by, the dog ran at them and his leash broke... he nipped the woman in the butt which broke the skin and she had a small amount of blood at the sight... the police came and took a stmt.. the fire department came to the scene and checked her out... we received a phone call tonight from the boyfriend telling us that she missed 3 days of work, has been to the hospital twice and has $3000 worth of medical bills... they told us that we could pay them $530.00 to get the womans car fixed and they would rip up the police report and that would be it... what do you suggest we do?..
