Watch Out, United — Beaten Passenger David Dao Hires Two Prominent Chicago Lawyers! Read Their First Statement!
Buckle up, United Airlines, because you're about to hit stormy skies.
The airline has enraged the public this week for violently yanking an uncooperative passenger off an overbooked flight.
Now, the company is gearing up for a legal battle that can't be fixed with a half-assed apology tweet.
While United was playing the aviation blame game, the victim of Sunday's incident, Dr. David Dao, enlisted the aid of two prominent Chicago attorneys, hinting that he plans on giving the airline quite the ass kicking in court.
The 69-year-old medical professional has hired corporate law specialist Stephen Golan and personal injury specialist Thomas Demetrio. This suggests Dao will not only sue for United's mistreatment of him, but for their procedures which allowed them to kick him off to make room for their own crew.
