Lauren Scruggs

Nothing Makes Me Smile

Like a Settlement Check

3/31/2012 3:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lauren Scruggs scored BIG
Lauren Scruggs scored BIG in her mystery settlement over her airplane propeller accident ... at least judging by the look on her face hours after the deal was announced.

Scruggs was photographed out near her home in Texas yesterday ... sporting a big ol' smile on her face ... the kind of smile that says I just got a MASSIVE check.

As we previously reported, Scruggs finally reached a settlement with the airplane insurance company for the gruesome injuries she sustained when she was struck by a propeller back on December 3.

The terms of the settlement have not been revealed ... but there are reports that the numbers got into the millions.

Wow this country is super ****ed up. You can be a complete ding dong and walk right into a plane propeller and get millions. Amazing! Sitting back waiting for the financial collapse. The people on Doomsday Preppers are looking smarter everyday.

Why is she getting a settlement? It was her dumb negligence that got her injured.

Read the comments on pilot message boards. They all are supporting her. There is no excuse for not turning off the prop before a passenger gets out of a small plane. A spinning propeller is nearly invisible during the day and totally invisible at night. The noise is so loud you cannot tell where it is coming from. It would have taken 5 seconds to turn off the engine and the propeller would have stopped immediately.

You people are idiots. Whatever amount she did receive I am sure she would give back to be normal again. NO AMOUNT is worth what happened to her or what it cost her. And the $200,000 grand they offered was an insult, typical insurance not wanting to pay. Leave her alone.

I think she deserves the money. The pilot, as a safety precaution, should have shut the propeller down before passengers were allowed to exit. Ms. Scruggs is now handicapped and her earning power is much reduced because of that. It is nice to see her smiling.

Pretty sad that someone can become an overnight millionaire for being a complete mucking foron! If some warned me to look both ways before crossing the street and I didn't heed that advice and just walked right into oncoming traffic,would I get millions for my injuries. No.

Frankly, I don't believe Ms. Scruggs should have received anything from the pilot's insurance company. The plane was not moving. She, walked into the propeller. It was an accident, and a horrible one to boot. I feel very badly for her and hope she continues to do well, I really do...but I believe HER insurance company should be taking care of this.
