Jackass Crew Have Racked Up Over $24 Million In Medical Bills

After 20+ years of putting their body on the line for lowbrow entertainment – of which we’re all thankful for – Johnny Knoxville & Co are somehow still kicking about; with their fourth feature-length instalment, Jackass Forever, scheduled for release next year. What’s even more surprising, however, is the fact the Jackass crew have somehow managed to remain financially solvent given their collective medical bills.

A brand new study conducted by Noval Legal Funding crunched the numbers behind the crunched bones to calculate a staggering estimate. This may all seem ridiculously inflated by Australian standards, but keep in mind the lads mastermind and execute pretty much all of their shenanigans over in the US where healthcare is – how do I put this delicately? – completely fucked. Anyways, happy reading!

Note: All sums mentioned in the following article + headline are USD.

“To gauge the cost of each individual injury, our specialist personal injury team tracked the average cost for each type of injury endured by the cast,” explains Noval Legal Funding.

“The team looked at 79 injuries in total across six members of the Jackass crew – these injuries span across 28 broken bones, 36 head injuries, and one alligator-related injury. The estimated total cost of injuries across the entire cast is $24,263,000.”

“However, this number only accounts for the reported injuries suffered by the main members of the Jackass crew, and we estimate the actual number could be closer to $38 million.”

“In terms of the most expensive injuries, Johnny Knoxville’s brain hemorrhage in 2020 during filming for Jackass Forever is estimated to have cost around $2.5 million to care for, while Steve-O’s skull fracture cost an estimated $1.75 million, Dave England has surgery after sustaining a neck injury, costing approximately $1.5 million.”

“On top of this, Johnny Knoxville has also sustained a reported 16 concussions in his life, equating to roughly $4 million in settlement costs, while Ehren McGhehey’s three broken necks and nine knee surgeries add up to around $3.8 million. Steve-O has broken his teeth seven times, costing $350,000 to repair.”
