. People didn't turn into zombies because they were bitten, people turned into zombies after being bitten because they were dead.
In the original Night of the Living Dead, the daughter was dying as a result of a bite she recieved sometime before the Coopers reached the farmhouse.

The 2004 Dawn remake led us to believe Luda (Andre's pregnant wife) was poisoned / slowly dying on her way to full transformation.

In TWD, Sophia's bite did not appear to be such a bleeder that it was the cause of death. It seems the bite turned her into a walker while she was alive (like Jim).

From all three examples, the implication of a bite is that a victim is actually in some mid-state of death, or "zombie-ism," so to speak while technically alive. So, they do not have to die before the disease has altered whatever brain function triggers typical zombie traits.
