United doctor suffered concussion while being dragged from flight, lawyer says

The Kentucky doctor who was dragged off a United Airlines flight on Sunday received a significant concussion and broken nose, and also lost two front teeth, his lawyer revealed Thursday.

Thomas Demetrio, a Chicago aviation attorney, said during a news conference that 69-year-old Dr. David Dao was released from a hospital late Wednesday night and will undergo reconstructive surgery in the coming days.

Dao was pulled from the plane Sunday after he refused to give up his seat on the full flight from Chicago to Louisville.

Demetrio said he “probably” will file a lawsuit on Dao’s behalf, but is doing due diligence to make sure “every word, every proposition in the lawsuit needs to be there.”
