A law firm in Los Angeles wanted Americans to understand the high cost of not having health insurance. So they turned to Homer Simpson's decades of pranks: 50 memorable incidents from the program's 706 episodes over 31 seasons to reach $ 143 million in medical bills, which is 443 times more than the average American.
From rodeoclown to human cannonball, which caused everything from concussions and brain damage to paralysis and broken bones, the Downtown LA Law Group calculated the staggering sum as if Homer did not have health insurance, reported on news site LADbible.com  Brain damage is the main item on Homer's account and costs a whopping $ 1.5 million. Paralysis ensued, costing Homer an estimated $ 508,904, followed by $ 1
The study found that the most common injury Homer sustained was falls; whether it was down the stairs, off the roof or just through general clumsiness. On 10 occasions, Homer broke several legs, which would cost him an estimated $ 48,000 each time. Homer's cases also often come with suspected concussions, leading to $ 800 each for eight separate incidents. Other traced accidents included animal attacks and food poisoning.
Farid Yaghoubtil, senior litigation attorney at Downtown L.A., said he hopes the study is seen as a warning. "We hope this medical record sheet encourages anyone who is considering getting health insurance and avoiding paying the price," he told LADbible.com.
