  • All the details you can give about the incident, including time and location
  • Details about your injury, including the type of injury you sustained in the incident
  • Costs, physicians, and other medical treatment information
  • Any photo evidence you can obtain for evidence
  • Details and description about the animal in the incident
  • All the information you can give about the pet owner
