Miguel's Leg Drop Victim

Possible Brain Damage

EXCLUSIVE

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.

I agree with the lawyer and I am astonished that BMA did not immediately make this woman go to the hospital. I realized people sue for everything in this day and age, but that was a NASTY looking hit that she took and I can't imagine her not having some physical damage...almost impossible.

By the looks of the video, I'm surprised she didn't break her neck or got a serious spine injury.

She should have had him arrested, for Assaulting her. He and the Billboard Music Award should Pay Criminally and in civil court and this woman should be a Millionaire after all is said because the Billboard Music Awards Allowed a Stunt where someone could be harmed.

Wow ...    

I understand why many posters are angry about no merit lawsuits. BUT this one young woman was injured, hopefully not seriously with something as long term and life long as brain damage. He was foolish - brain injury, spine & nerve damage could easily result from his stunt. May she get whatever help is necessary to heal, whether it is a week of p.t. or worse - years of a medical team and treatment.
