Remember the trending story of the poor passenger being mistreated on the infamous United Airlines flight? Well, 69-year-old Dr. David Dao has finally spoken up about the assault he suffered.
He just released a statement that said he plans to sue the airline with two teams of lawyers.
Dr. David Dao was the passenger chosen at random by United Airlines to be forcibly ejected by Chicago authorities after their flight was overbooked.
He was dragged on the floor - screaming with blood all over his face - just to make room for United Airlines employees on the flight.
Rewatch the video recorded by netizen Tyler Bridges, who saw firsthand the maltreatment of Dr. Dao.
Here’s another video released by netizen Kaylyn Davis on her Twitter account:
In a report by Chicago Business, Dr. Dao hired two top veteran Chicago attorneys, Thomas A. Demetrio and Stephen Golan, to oversee the case filed against United Airlines.
“Everything is injured and that he is not doing well,” reported by CBS affiliate, WKLY.
Stephen Golan released this statement:
“The family of Dr. Dao wants the world to know that they are very appreciative of the outpouring of prayers, concern and support they have received. Currently, they are focused only on Dr. Dao’s medical care and treatment.”
Dr. Dao’s other lawyer, Thomas A. Demetrio, is an aviation litigation specialist. He has represented clients that have experienced product liability, medical negligence, and aeroplane crash cases. He has negotiated more than $1 billion in settlements for his clients.
It is public knowledge that Dr. Dao has a criminal past. The Vietnamese doctor was previously charged with offering pharmaceutical drugs in exchange for sex. He has also been charged with stalking.
However, his past surely has no bearing on the current controversy surrounding him and United Airlines.
Good luck to you Dr. Dao!
