Car Accident Relief

Hi. This is Charles A. Smith. On Saturday, November 11, 2017, I was involved in a major 3 car accident in Dallas, TX. A GMC Yukon drove into the back of my car in stand still traffic, which caused me to rear end the Nissan Altima in front of me. On Monday, November 13, 2017, my insurance company declared my car a total loss. Although I was responsible for this vehicle, I was not the title holder or the insurance policy holder. As a result, I am not entitled to any funds associated with this vehicle. The insurance company was gracious enough to give me a rental for a week in hopes I would purchase a new one. However, my alloted time with the vehicle has expired. I have exhausted my financial resources to continue paying out- of-pocket for the rental car. My commute to and from work is at least 40 minutes each way. I also suffered injuries as a result of this accident. I need medical attention from  Orthepedic Specialists and Physical Therapists.  I am in desperate need of transportation so that I can not only get back and forth to work, but make  and all important medical appointments.
I am totally independent and my only resource for making provisions for myself in any given situation.  With that being said, I am humbly asking all of my friends, and anyone who is lead to do so, to assist me in my endeavor to obtain another vehicle.   Any amount you feel compelled to give would be greatly appreciated.  I never thought that I would find myself in a situation such as this, but as all of you know, I am sure, life is unpredictable. 
Thank you in advance for your support.
