Miguel's Leg Drop Victim

Possible Brain Damage

6/4/2013 6:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The girl who took Miguel's leg drop to the head at the Billboard Music Awards may have suffered brain damage ... the victim's lawyer tells TMZ.

As you'll recall ... Miguel took a flying, theatrical leap across the stage and landed with thunderous force on Khyati Shah's head.

Vip Bhola, Shah's lawyer, says, "Some of the difficulties she's experiencing are cognitive in nature and lead to suspicion of a neurological head injury."

Bhola says BMA responded to the accident with a pathetic gesture -- an ice pack designed to soothe a bruised elbow.  The attorney insists his client should have been rushed to the hospital.

Bhola tells us his client is waiting for test results from a neurologist. When the results are in -- sometime next week --  Khyati will decide if a lawsuit is in the cards.

Calls to Miguel and the BMA producers were not returned.

what an idiot, he should be held accountable plus some!! He ignored orders and hurt a fan. Endangering and then Hurting your fans is not a way to keep them...look at the people's faces after he lands, many are in shock he did that dangerous and blatantly irresponsible stunt

Her attorney say that "She may be suffering from injuries cognitive in nature", I know what that mean. That fish for a lawsuit. Had she suffered serious brain injuries, she would be in the hospital, and her lawyer wouldn't be using language such as "may have." While inguries cognitive in nature can be faked, it would be hard to keep it up at all times. If I was the attorneys for Miguel, I would hire a private investigator to tail her. Keep an eye on her facebook page. Anyone can fake not knowing anything. It would be harder for her to keep up the charade. I think for her "embarrassment", give her a few thousand dollars, tickets and a backstage pass at his next concert in her town.

why is everybody focusing on the leg drop, (not taking nothing away from it.) i'm sure she's hurt. And not the jump thrust kick straight to the other chick's face? Then he keeps on singing? I would gladly take a leg drop from Hogan, than a kick like that. Miguel and everyone in that pit who let those girls fall to the floor, and kept on singing and dancing, are S***BAGS!!!;-

That looked really painful. I don't know about brain damage but her neck and back have to hurt.

Forget about the woman he leg dropped. What about the one he kicked in the head?
