In the event of an animal bite, doctors usually recommend that the individual be tested for rabies. If a person is bitten by a rabid animal and does not receive treatment in time, he or she may suffer serious illness or even death. Because one major sign of rabies in animals is increased aggression, rabies is usually a concern for dog bite victims.

Regardless of whether or not a rabies test comes back positive, a dog bite victim should fight to hold the dog’s owner accountable. If you or someone you love suffered a dog bite and contracted rabies, contact the Michigan dog bite lawyers of Ravid & Associates, P.C., today at 1-877-PETBITE to discuss your legal options.

Signs and Symptoms of Rabies

It is important to note that a rabid dog may not always exhibit the commonly recognized symptoms (increased aggression, foaming at the mouth, manic behavior), especially if it was recently infected.
Dog bite victims may not know whether they may have contracted rabies in these cases. An individual should always get tested after a dog bite. Those who do not get tested may suffer:

  • Anxiety and paranoia
  • Hallucinations
  • Partial paralysis
  • Insomnia
  • Hydrophobia

Sadly, most people who experience symptoms of rabies die within several days of the first symptom. When caught before symptoms begin, though, individuals have a high chance of surviving the infection.
