No, you're only option is to get it repaired (replaced) by apple and that will be pricey no doubt.Does anyone know if it's possible to fix the screen!?
Maybe your homeowner insurance will cover your loss or if you bought it with a credit card that might cover your damage.
Check out this typical 90 day purchase protection from Am Ex (many card have it) https://www.americanexpress.com/us/content/card-benefits/purchase-protection.htmli'm going to guess that homeowners would be a no go since i don't have contents covered.. and it did get turned on, and works fine actually. would just love to get the screen fixed, it's fairly new to me and i haven't even gotten to use it much yet....
If you have insurance, call the agent and ask. Nobody here can do anything more than guess what's in your policy.i didn't use a credit card.. i used my debit card..
and i'm sorry i don't guess i'm understanding about homeowners insurance. if i have replacement value how will they cover it considering it was just an accident and not damaged through any kind of disaster? although i still don't see how that would work anyway without contents being covered :/

Unfortunately starting with the 2012 iMac the glass and the lcd are now bonded together and have to be replaced together. I cracked my 2012 iMac screen and Apple told me it would cost $750 or so to repair it. I decided just to learn to ignore the crack. Yours looks more serious so you may decide just to eat the cost.
It's most likely that the repair will require replacement of the screen, glass, and housing. It will be an extremely expensive repair. The LCD is likely the single most expensive component in the computer.i'm not asking anyone to guess what my policy is. i was stating to one of the kind people that suggested using that what my dilemma is, and why i don't understand. to him specifically. and as far as being here, my question originally was if anyone knows if the screen could be fixed, which is what somebody here could answer, if they know.

Sorry -- looks like a "total loss" to me. The cost of replacement parts and labor probably approach or exceed the cost of a new computer...
$750 != New iMac
This is why the thin/light desktop craze is ridiculous. If the table gave out that's one thing, but if it was pulled/pushed off the table - that's a lot easier to do when it is built like a cracker. Let's make Jony Ive pay for it - he can afford it.
