Miguel's Leg Drop Victim

Possible Brain Damage

EXCLUSIVE

0603_miguel_leg_drop_Article_ABC_3
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.

Miguel doesn't even stop to check if Khyati Shah is OK, he just keeps on singing. The producers should have never allowed Miguel to attempt that jump...and no people the jump was not spontaneous!

He is obviously a reckless amateur they should pay up if she's having problems.

I never even heard of that Miguel guy until he did the Hogan legdrop on that girl. I think maybe it was a publicity stunt to get some unknown singer's name out there.

Khyati Shah should have put the 'camel clutch' on Miguel after that leg drop!

Miguel is gonna have to take care of this poor lady the rest of her life, or pay her off. Because she surely is going to have medical issues, dumb move Miguel, hopping over the fans in a mosh pit.

Oh hell yeah. He boots the left side of her head and the inertia slams the right side of her head into the corner of the stage. I'm surprised she was even conscious after that blow. I'm usually one of the first people in line to scoff at a frivolous lawsuit but that woman is lucky if all she has is brain damage from a concussion. That was ugly.

Not a fan of lawsuits but the first thing I thought was they need to rush her to the hospital she could have a subdural hematoma. My mom had that after a blow to the head and sadly was never the same. I mean the full weight of his body came down straight on her poor head and slammed her head up against a hard surface. He should have insisted she go to the hospital. That the same kind of situation thing Liam Neelson wife Natasha Richardson died from.

If she's really hurt or not I don't know. However, after watching the clip I can't help but wonder why someone like Roy Orbison never attempted a leg drop. Why he never jumped up and down and all around the stage. Jim Reeves, Perry Como, Pat Boone, Del Shannon, Marty Robbins and many others never attempted anything like that. Hell, even the Beatles stood and sang their songs.
Looking at someone like Bieber, "dancing" and"singing at the same time during a show, I wonder why he never runs out of breath.

Good riddance!    

Yes, she's obviously on death's door and life support now and the only possible cure for it is a fat check to her and her lawyer. Slipknot had it right with their song People = $hit

And who was stopping the client from having herself taken to the hospital? Did she see the neurologist before or after she met with the lawyer?
