Rattlesnakes tend to avoid developed areas and are normally found in more natural undisturbed habitats. Each year, an estimated 8,000 people are bitten by venomous snakes in the U.S. Out of this incredibly large number, only about five bites will result in death. So, if someone gets bitten, the chances are over 99.99% they will recover; however, even with these odds, you should seek medical attention immediately. The most important factor in surviving a snakebite is the time elapsed from the bite until treatment. Most deaths occur between 6 hours and 48 hours from the time of being bitten.
