Singer Miguel's 'Leg Drop' Victim May Sue for Brain Damage

Miguel took a flying leap across the stage during the Billboard Music Awards and landed on unsuspecting audience member Khyati Shah, who is undergoing tests for possible neurological head injury. Will she have a case?

Singer Miguel shocked us all last month when he took a flying leap across the stage at the Billboard Music Awards, only to land squarely on the head and neck of Khyati Shah. After the performance Miguel met with Khyati backstage and tweeted “Got caught up in the moment, thank goodness Khyati is okay.”

 It is easy to see the possibility of injury after watching the video, and this week her attorney has confirmed she will undergo a round of medical testing for possible brain damage.  “Some of the difficulties she’s experiencing are cognitive in nature and lead to suspicion of a neurological head injury” Shah’s lawyer Vip Bhola said in a message to TMZ.

Bhola also points out that the Billboard Music Awards’ staff’s response was almost insulting; they simply handed her an ice pack designed for elbows.  The attorney believes Shah should have been rushed to the hospital in an ambulance immediately.

Bhola also explains that he and Khyati are waiting to hear the results of the neurological testing before deciding if a lawsuit against Miguel is the right move.
