While Lauren is making significant progress, a source tells us her parents are starting to focus their attention on who should be held accountable for her injuries.
Lauren Scruggs is walking and talking although she’s still in Parkland Hospital’s ICU in Dallas. Texas. HollywoodLife.com has spoken to a source close to the Scruggs family and they tell us that the family is faced with a very difficult decision.
“Lauren’s family is one of the nicest you’ll ever meet,” our source says. “The last thing they want is revenge. But they feel like someone should be held accountable for the lack of safety and good judgement on the runway. It wasn’t entirely Lauren’s fault and they want justice and answers.”
The source goes on to tell us that several high-powered Dallas attorneys have reached out to the family and offered to represent them and help them with their case.
“They aren’t looking to make any money off of this,” our source says. “They just want to find out what happened and make sure what happened to Lauren never happens to anyone else’s son or daughter.”
According to a spokesperson for the family, Lauren sustained severe head and shoulder injuries on Dec. 3, when she turned to thank the pilot after he took them to see Christmas lights with a friend. She was caught in the spinning blade and her left hand was severed, she suffered a skull fracture, brain injury and could lose her left eye.
On Dec. 7 her family announced that Lauren was walking and she blurted out the words “30 steps” in reference to how many steps she had taken. We are so glad to hear she’s making a strong recovery.
