|Around here, if you are in an area that is not designated as a leashless area, than no matter who started it, the owner of the dog that is not on lead is always responsible.
Since both of your dogs were of leash in a non-designated area, you are in a do it at your own risk scenario. If you report it, both of you are negligent for not following leash laws. It doesn't matter if "everyone does it."
Now the right thing to do would be for the person who owns the biter to help the injured party, but that's not always possible, and no court would take the case if you wanted to sue. It was just an unfortunate accident; lesson learned.
