Lauren Scruggs Rejects $200,000 Insurance Settlement For Airplane Accident

Filed under: Legal MattersModels

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.

Thoughts???

Lauren Scruggs' New Prosthetic Eye Is "Beautiful"

Filed under: InspirationModels

After suffering what was described as her "toughest week yet", Lauren Scruggs was on the up and up this week.

According to her mom Lauren's physical pain has subsided and she got fitted for her prosthetic eye.

Cheryl Scruggs wrote on Thursday morning:

Last Saturday was a big day. Bittersweett.

Jeff, myself, Lo and Britt showed up at 9am at the ocularist. We didn't know what to expect, other than it would be an all day process from 9am -5pm. Another new step….. the time had come for Lo to be fitted for her prosthetic eye.

So we proceeded through the day, one step at a time. All four of us would go into the room, and go through another step. Sometimes we waited in the waiting room for a while, other times we could leave for a while to walk around, or go to lunch.

She was fitted and measured. The ocularist carefully painted and shaped the new eye. By 5pm, it was done, and her new eye was in place. It is beautiful.

It's wonderful to hear Lauren's pain is minimal, but Cheryl added it's "the emotional pain that is the tough one".
