The 2013 Billboard Music Awards were held in Las Vegas last month. Singer Miguel -- whose singles include "Sure Thing" and "Quickie" -- performed at the music awards show and attempted a flying jump over an audience pit to hype the crowd. Unfortunately, Miguel's legs may have been brushed by the hands of multiple fans, slowing his leap until his right thigh slammed against Khyati Shah, cracking her head against the stage.

After Miguel's leg drop incident, the artist participated in an interview with fan Khyati Shah, who held an ice pack. Miguel called Shah his "new friend" during the interview.

In a Twitter post addressing the incident, Miguel tweeted: "Got caught up in moment, thank goodness Khyati is okay."

However, Khyati Shah is not okay. Since the incident, Khyati claims the trauma has left her with symptoms consistent with brain damage, according to TMZ.

"Some of the difficulties she's experiencing are cognitive in nature and lead to suspicion of a neurological head injury," reports fan Khyati Shah's lawyer, Vip Bhola.

What's more, Bhola claims organizers at the Billboard Music Awards should have escorted Khyati Shah to the hospital. Instead, Shah was only offered an ice pack following the incident.

Neurology tests were be performed to officially determine whether or not Khyati Shah suffers from brain damage caused by Miguel's leg drop. If the trauma is authentic, Khyati Shah and lawyer Vip Bhola may initiate a lawsuit.

Stay tuned in the days ahead as medical examiners determine whether fan Khyati Shah suffered brain damage.

Miguel, born and raised in San Pedro, Los Angeles, released his debut album "All I Want Is You" in November 2010. The album features singles including "Sure Thing" and "Quickie."
