Report this claim to your insurance company to resolve. Do not take action with respect to this claim without first reporting the claim to your insurer. There are certain provisions in a homeowners/renter's policy about your duty to cooperate with your insurer and part of this duty involves timely reporting claims and not taking any actions that would prejudice your insurance company.
So, report to your insurance company to resolve the claim. I hope this helps.
In an attempt to resolve the matter without reporting to your insurer, make sure you have him execute a full release of all claims. You can pay half the co-pay, but avoid being on the hook for all future costs, etc. If its more serious, and requires more treatment, I would suggest contacting your insurer. You can also ask them for some guidance on how to resolve this claim, without actually reporting the claim.
Hand this over to your homeowner's insurance company. There is not enough here to draw any conclusions on liability. Even if there is no liability on you, your insurance may have a medpay provision that would pay some expenses without regard to liability. Let them decide how to handle it based on the facts of the case and the coverage you chose..
