So a really big dog ran out in front me on the highway. I had two vehicles behind me and couldn't brake in time to stop. Needless to say the dog did alot of damage. Before the incident I already had a leak at the "tee" mold coming from the thermostat. Now I have a lot more to replace and was wondering if some could point me in the correct order I should tackle these repairs. I'll leave out bumper, and bumper guard being that's cosmetic and not my priorities right now. I need to replace my a/c condenser radiator, actual radiator, upper coolant hose assembly, lower radiator hose, and curious to if I should change the water pump while I'm at it. I just replaced a thermostat about 3months prior to the incident so I believe that should be fine. Where should I begin? What order makes the most sense to tackle? All help greatly appreciated!

did you check with your insurance?
they may handle collisions with animals different than collisions with vehicles.

in Ohio there is/was a "dumb animal" clause. it covered animals that didn't know about dangers vs other drivers/whatever who should know how to stay safe.
