In brief: Growing up in the
Blue ridge mountain, i knew a man who had been bit on the leg by a rattlesnake.
This occurred in the 1950's when people handled snake bites very differently. His brother cut his leg & sucked out venom (please don't do that - now a days we handle it differently). There was no doctor or medical care in our county. He lived but did say it was very painful.

In brief: Yes
Such a bite is a double puncture by a large hollow fang containing a toxic brew which seriously hurts and can be dangerous, even lethal.
Get help immediately.
