JUST IN: Dr. Dao has reached an "amicable settlement with United Airlines for the injuries he received in his April 9th ordeal," lawyers say pic.twitter.com/UgEoLkLdi9— ABC News (@ABC) April 27, 2017
Dao's attorney said that the amount remains confidential as one of the provisions of the settlement.
He also praised United CEO Oscar Munoz.
"Mr. Munoz said he was going to do the right thing, and he has. In addition, United has taken full responsibility for what happened on Flight 3411, without attempting to blame others, including the City of Chicago. For this acceptance of corporate accountability, United is to be applauded," said attorney Thomas Demetrio.
