Lauren Scruggs -- the model who suffered gruesome injuries in a plane propeller accident last year -- celebrated her 24th birthday and showed off her new prosthetic arm in Texas on Wednesday.

Last December, Scruggs lost her left hand and left eye after accidentally walking into an airplane propeller. She has been undergoing extensive rehab and a few months ago settled with the airplane insurance company for an undisclosed amount.

Despite the terrible circumstances of the accident, Lauren appears to be moving forward with her life. Happy Birthday, indeed.

Oh PALEEEZZZZ! SHE walked in to the propeller and then had the NERVE to sue the insurance company to pay for her medical expenses!?!? Why is it their responsibly to pay for HER neglegance? WE all end up paying higher insurance premiums because of this very reason!! Pay for your OWN mistakes please!!!!

Her parents said during her hospital stay that Lauren had brain damage they said this several times. What kind of brain damage does she have other than what she had before that made her foolish enough to walk into a plane propeller?

Hunh, i guess when a pilot tells me to wait till the plane stops on the tarmac, i wait.......and not go down the ramp, or if i do i go, i step back or stop.....or i hear a big whhhhhiiiirrrrring sound that tells me 'hey don't go there'
