The physician who was dragged down the aisle of a United Airlines flight at O'Hare International Airport earlier this month, has reached a confidential settlement with the Airline.
David Dao, 69 from Kentucky physician suffered a broken nose and a concussion and lost two front teeth during the April 9 incident, which was recorded on video that went viral worldwide.
The Video shows airport police violently dragging a Dao off the plane after he refused to give up his seat to make room for airline employees on the Kentucky-bound flight.
Attorneys for Dao announced the settlement Thursday afternoon, but terms were not disclosed.
Dao's lawyer Thomas Demetrio praised United CEO Oscar Munoz for his handling of the dispute. "Mr. Munoz said he was going to do the right thing and he has," Demetrio said.
In a statement, United said the "amicable resolution of the unfortunate incident that occurred aboard Flight 3411."
“We look forward to implementing the improvements we have announced, which will put our customers at the center of everything we do,” the airline said.
Dao's lawyer indicated that in the settlement that the incident that involved four Chicago Department of Aviation Security officers, and the city of Chicago are likely off the hook as to future lawsuits.
"No one else in the entire world is going to be sued by Dr. Dao," Demetrio said in a statement.
"United Airlines has accepted full responsibility for what occurred on Flight 3411. There is no need to proceed with a separate lawsuit against the city. United has stepped up to the plate and hit a home run," Demetrio said.
