United Airlines Settles Passenger Beating Case

The "re-accommodation" of Dr. David Dao from a United Airlines Passenger jet was caught on cell phone video by several horrified onlookers and was settled just 20 days after the incident. The settlement is confidential and we know how badly United wanted to get this off the front page of the newspaper and out of the minds of the travelling public. More on this in a moment.

The Corporate Board of United understood who was representing Dr. Dao. Attorney Tom Demetrio is well known in Chicago which happens to be where United Airline's Corporate Headquarters are located. Mr. Demetrio is well known for his willingness to take a case to trial and uses discovery and depositions as tools to get a positive result for his client. He will only settle a case without these tools when the terms support his client.

Our outlook at GB Legal is identical. We are unafraid at the prospect of trial. At any given time we are preparing for multiple trials... Some our own and some we have taken in from other attorneys based on our trial experience. We have the experience, resources and track record to handle complex trials and insurance companies know when we say we will take a case to trial we are serious. We are in a serious business affecting the lives of our clients. Many of the cases we take to trial are referred to our office from lawyers leveraging our reputation as actual courtroom litigators and our experience inside a courtroom.

The settlement between United and the Dao family is confidential and since the world was watching this works well for both parties. This confidentiality also makes it more difficult to gage the value of subsequent cases as there are no expectations set in regards to this sort of corporate misbehavior. Keep in mind that Dr. Dao lost 2 teeth, had a broken nose, a concussion, suffered extreme embarrassment and his personal and family history put on display. We will never know if Dr. Dao's settlement would have been larger after depositions and the prospect of a trial. Having experienced and trusted advocates like Glenn Guenard, Ross Bozarth and Tom Demetrio on your side are incredibly helpful in this regard. The average person wouldn't know where to begin with a situation like this and having experienced and trusted advocates on your side is invaluable.

We represent people who are injured because of the careless and reckless acts of others. At the end of the day your case can only be settled one time and you need to know all of the facts beforehand. The reason that insurance companies have paid our clients in excess of $130,000,000.00 is that we get the facts and are not intimidated at the prospect of going to trial when they refuse to follow the law. We help with serious issues that require serious representation. We are the Law Offices of Guenard & Bozarth. We have over 80 years of experience in our plaintiff's only law firm.
