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.

Didn't I read right after the incident that she as happy as a pig in s**t over what happened because Miguel's leg hit her, or something? Now a couple weeks later when no one remembers, she all of a sudden has brain damage, allegedly...yeah okay. $$$$

Of course its about Money . Then again she was at the Billboard awards so I guess they have to determine if the brain damage was already there .

I'm certain she had a concussion, the way her head was forced back, and she also hits her neck and the back of her head on the stage...not to mention his body slams the front of her. I'm not surprised she is having issues. Head injuries arr not to be fooled around with, or joked about. Anyone with eyes can see this girl was hurt.

She's definitely brain damaged: she didn't press charges the day the video went viral.
