Reuters says that the passenger wants $10 million in damages.

The complaint says the fully-stocked cart rolled down the aisle after takeoff and hit him in the head and caused unconsciousness.

Instead of landing, the flight then continued on its two-hour flight.

The complaint says the passenger now suffers from 'chronic traumatic brain injury and post-concussive syndrome' and that he has been unable to work because of his injury.

A spokesman for American Airlines said the company is currently reviewing the complaint.
