The talk of the Billboard Music Awards on May 19 was Miguel’s leg jump on fans. When Miguel landed from his jump his legs intertwined with a fan’s head and struck it against the stage.

A Billboard Music Awards rep at the time the fans are “absolutely OK,” but one fan’s lawyer is claiming his the injury may have caused her brain damage.

“Some of the difficulties she’s experiencing are cognitive in nature an dlead to suspicion of a neurological head injury,” Vip Bhola, Khyati Shah’s lawyer, told TMZ.

Bhola said this client should have been rushed to the hospital after the incident. Instead she was handed an ice pack to soothe a bruised elbow.

Shah is currently waiting for results to tests she took with a neurologist. Once the results are in, she will decide whether or not to sue.

On the night of the incident, Billobard told Mashable, “Yes they are absolutely OK! He was dancing and hugging them post jump.”

Miguel also addressed the tumble by tweeting, “got caught up in the moment, thank goodness Khyati is okay.”

The tweet has since been deleted and Mashable suspects it could be because it could possibly be used as evidence in a lawsuit Bhola could file.
