I can see how this would be confusing since the info comes from three different sources (the video game, the comics and the TV show). Let's just stick with the video game since the in game info provided is probably what we should be going by anyways.
1) If a person dies, for whatever reason, they reanimate as a walker. Unless, they died of massive head trauma like the Macon girl.
2) Reanimation happens pretty fast. How fast? Don't know....just fast.
3) If you get bit, you will get sick and die at a fast rate. Since you died...see item 1 above.
Hope this helps.
