This might be a little differant, I am the Plaintiff in this suit. I own a rental house that was leased to a tennant. This tennant also had someone else living there. This other person invited a friend in and while in the house the dog bit the friend. The person bit is suing me, the landlord. I had no insurance on the house at the time,otherwise I could turn it over to them. I don't see where any blame can be put on me for I am not allowed in house during lease period. Can I handle this without an attorney which I estimate a minimum of $5,000. The person bit says he will settle for $20,000. I don't think I personally owe anything, it should be on the dog owner who skipped town. Please advise
