Ride-service company Uber is facing a wrongful death lawsuit over a collision that killed a 6-year-old girl in San Francisco on New Year's Eve. Sofia Liu was hit by a car driven by one of Uber's contractors. But Uber maintains the driver was not on duty for the company at the time of the accident. What does the suit mean for riders, drivers and for the rapidly expanding ride-service industry?
