Rabies is a very preventable disease that affects mammals. According to the Center for Disease Control the most common type of transmission is through the bite of an animal who has contracted the disease. Prevention is key in keeping dog, cats and humans safe from the potentially deadly illness. Please read on to learn more about how rabies affects both animals and humans.
If you have been bitten or attacked by an animal we cannot stress enough the importance of reporting it to a physician. Even if you do not believe the animal was ill it is better to ensure that you are protected from this serious disease.
After reporting the bite please contact your experienced Connecticut (CT) personal injury lawyer at Glass, Lebovitz, Kasheta & Bren for your free consultation.
