If you’ve recently been bitten by a dog that may have rabies, drop what you’re doing and seek medical attention.

Rabies is a serious viral condition that attacks the tissues of the central nervous system. It is a potentially deadly disease, so it needs to be treated quickly and efficiently. Even if you’re unsure of whether the dog that bit you has rabies, seek medical attention. Once you’re in a position to meet with a Houston, TX rabies injury lawyer from John K. Zaid & Associates, you can bring your medical records with you to your consultation, as they may prove to be a valuable source of evidence if you choose to file a legal claim against the rabid dog’s owner.
If You’ve Been Bitten by a Rabid Dog
If there is any chance that the dog who has bitten you is rabid, you cannot wait to seek medical attention. Rabies literally has the highest mortality rate of all diseases on the planet. It is partially for this reason that it’s important to speak with a Houston, TX rabies injury lawyer after you’ve sought medical treatment. Animal owners who don’t properly address the presence of rabies in their animals’ systems should almost certainly be held accountable for that recklessness. Yes, it’s possible for an owner to not know that their animal has contracted rabies very recently. But if the animal was showing signs of unusually aggressive behavior and the owner didn’t take steps to address that change, that could result in legal liability.
