The Global Alliance for Rabies Control has recently reported astonishing facts about the ongoing issue of rabies in the U.S. While many do not think about the seriousness of the disease that can be contracted from any contact with a rabid animal, but mostly is caused by dog bites in the U.S., five humans die from rabies every year.
The GARC stated that the reason for death caused by rabies is that many people are not aware of the risks of rabies and are not vaccinated. Vaccinations for humans can serve as a preventative measure in the event that a person gets bitten by a rabid animal. Also, it is important for dogs to be vaccinated. While there are laws that require dogs to be vaccinated in the U.S., stray dogs may not be vaccinated and could cause serious harm.
The contraction of rabies is extremely serious and can cause death and serious injury. If you or someone you love has been bitten by a dog, please contact the Kenosha dog bite lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier, S.C., at 800-242-2874.
