An attorney for Dr. David Dao, the passenger at the center of the United Airlines incident, said that there will likely be a lawsuit as a result of the incident.
"I think corporate America needs to understand that we all want to be treated in the same manner with the same respect and the same dignity that they would treat their own family members. If they do that, wouldn't it be great? So, will there be a lawsuit? Yeah, probably," attorney Thomas Demetrio said during a press conference on Thursday.
Dao filed a "bill of discovery" on Wednesday in order to preserve evidence documenting the incident.
However, winning a lawsuit may prove difficult for Dao, said Kenneth Quinn of Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw law firm.
