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.

I don't think anybody is suprprised by this. I wish her all the best and I hope Miguel will do the right thing. Maybe he saw this coming. Good luck to all involved.

Well, this situation should put an end to crowd surfing! If I were an entertainer, I sure wouldn't take the risk.

though a lawsuit is warranted, the damage awards tend to over inflate peoples value in society. americans and their lawyers tend to see these incidences as a gold at the end of a rainbow.

He certainly used bad judgement in jumping over those people and took the risk. By watching the video it is obviously she was hurt, any injury to a brain from concussions to small hits it dangerous and should never be taken lightly. There is a lawsuit and should be a large payout for her injuries and possible medical treatment and therapy she may need.

Bogus! Her brain was damaged before, and if it's damaged 10 or 20% more now, nobody will recognize it..

Look at the way her neck snapped back and hit the stage, and look at the fact that it was from Miguel's full weight flying at her head. I would not doubt that she would have major injuries from that hit. Whoever was in charge of the show should have made certain that she was sent to a hospital.

Unintentional, yes. Careless? DEFINITELY.
This girl needs to be generously compensated for her injuries.

looks like tmz might have a case of possible brain damage. i mean they run stories about anal porn teen sex moms, gay porn stars, show graphic images of severed digits, broken limbs, broken bones, throats being slit, run stories about broken penises, are constantly reporting about crazy antics and behavior of stars who are falling off the deep end, on drug overdoses, suicide, about kim kardashian being a nazi, etc. and leave up comments that scroll endlessly, by one person who just wants to annoy all other readers, and 'i am single want to date rich singles comments, but then incessantly delete my comments, one after the other??? there is seriously something wrong with your brains at tmz, you are friken stupid, like borderline retarded, really. did you grow up in an incest family or something? because that is a very typical sign of having grown up in an especially located in very specific communities in the united states, incest plagued families. maybe you didn't like get laid last night, and are looking to take it out on some random 'defenseless' victim --typical for sexual abuse family members... i'm just saying.. you like to punish people who don't do what you want them to do? -sign of coming from some serious incest family. in other words: FUQ U. GO GET SOME ****IN PSYCHO THERAPY YOU FKN MORONS. DON'T GO TAKING YOUR FKN INCEST CHIT OUT ON MY BTICH. GO SLAP YER FKN DADDY U FKN HOMO. PUT MY FKN COMMENTS BACK UP, HOTO ASZ PHUG BTICH.

That's some ****ed up ****! That poor girl. Hopefully she will be ok.. That idiot that thought he could pull a move like that needs to pay! Im sick and tired of hearing a celebrity can get away with almost anything, but if a regular civilian were to ever try and attempt something as stupid as that ignorant Bastard they would get arrested for sure! Hope all is well for her!

With brain damage her IQ should be just about right to give her a promising career in rap or country music.
