You can find just about anything online, including help paying your bills after a car accident. The crowdfunding site GoFundMe has turned into a way for accident victims and others in need to help pay their bills through the kindness of strangers.
How It Works
GoFundMe is a website where anyone can start a fundraiser, and anyone can donate. From small needs to multimillion-dollar projects, people have raised billions of dollars through the crowdfunding site. That’s why more and more car crash victims and their families have turned to this website for help paying their bills.
Many crash victims do not realize how expensive the aftermath is. From repair costs to medical bills to lost wages due to injuries, countless people find themselves in over their heads in bills and expenses. GoFundMe helps some of these people out from under these bills via donations from strangers around the country. But is this the only way?
Getting Real Compensation
People often turn to GoFundMe because they realize their insurance settlement won’t cover all costs. Oftentimes insurance companies offer a much lower settlement that does not account for all the additional expenses people encounter after an accident. There are many surprise costs that can come up if you need long-term rehab or medical care or are out of work for a longer period of time than you expected.
But there’s no guarantee that you can pay your bills through GoFundMe. Not everyone’s fundraisers make their goal. It’s an unreliable source of payment. However, you can get the compensation you need and deserve to pay your bills another way.
Working with an attorney can help you get the right insurance settlement and compensation for your injuries. An experienced attorney will know how to handle the insurance companies and can help you with your car accident claim. Working with an attorney may sound intimidating or unnecessary but it is a much more secure way to get the money you need to pay your bills.
