Symptoms of Rabies

Published on November 3rd, 2012

If you are bitten by an animal, it is important to seek medical attention right away, as you may have been infected with rabies. The progression of the disease may be halted with early administration of the rabies vaccine, but if treatment is delayed until symptoms appear, survival is unlikely.

As this video explains, rabies begins to manifest with flu-like symptoms, such as fever and achiness. Within days, neurologic abnormalities appear, including hallucinations, insomnia, and excessive salivation. From there, the disease quickly progress to paralysis and coma, with death occurring soon after.

If you had to undergo rabies treatment after being bitten by an unvaccinated pet, you may be eligible for compensation. Call Shea Law Group at (773) 365-0040 for an over-the-phone consultation regarding your situation.
