When dogs bite people, the majority rule (ie the rule in most jurisdictions) is that the dog owner is strictly liable and required to pay full compensation to the victim. However, the act of trespassing or provoking a dog may negate an individual's right to full compensation and one may be deemed comparatively negligent.

Depending on the severity of the bite, a victim is entitled to compensation for physical pain, mental suffering, medical expenses to treat the injury, permanent scarring, and temporary or permanent disability. Permanent scarring usually changes the value of cases to a higher amount though this is contingent on the size of the scar, the age of the victim, where the scar is and the gender of the victim.
