Dr. David Dao, who was dragged off a United Express airliner in Chcago Sunday, suffered a broken nose, damaged sinuses, and lost two teeth, his daughter said Thurday.

"What happened to my dad should never have happened to any human being, regardless of the circumstances," Crystal Dao said at a news conference in Chicago.

Thomas Demetrio, a lawyer for Dao said airlines have "bullied" passengers "for a long time."

Airlines have treated us as "less than maybe we deserve," said Demetrio, adding that he "probably" will file a lawsuit on Dao's behalf.

Dao was dragged from the airliner after he refused to give up his seat on the full flight.

United Airlines CEO Oscar Munoz has said he was "ashamed" when he saw the video and that the airline is reviewing its policies. Munoz says law enforcement won't be involved in removing passengers in the future.

Dao, 69, remains hospitalized.
