Model Lauren Scruggs is in the midst of a legal battle with an insurance company over the amount of settlement money she'll receive following her tragic airplane accident last year.
The plane's insurance company "verbally offered" to pay her $200,000 for her injuries — the most they can pay for a "passenger". However, Scruggs is fighting back saying she wasn't a passenger at the time of the accident since she was neither in the aircraft or making an exit.
She adds in the legal docs filed in Texas:
"[She] completed her exit from the aircraft prior to the time of the incident and was physically located on the tarmac when the incident happened. Until struck by the propeller, she was not in physical contact with the aircraft after her exit."
The rest of the deets of Lauren's lawsuit are minimal, but we do know she's asking for unspecified damages or at least more than $200K.
