Wrongful death lawsuit filed against Uber in death of 6-year-old girl in San Francisco

SAN FRANCISCO - The family of a girl killed while in a San Francisco crosswalk on New Year's Eve is suing the Internet ride-service company Uber.

Attorney Christopher Dolan is filing a wrongful death lawsuit on behalf of the family of Sofia Liu in San Francisco Superior Court on Monday.

The suit claims Uber is responsible for the girl's death as she was struck while crossing the street along with her mother and brother in the city's Tenderloin neighbourhood.

Police arrested then-Uber driver, 57-year-old Syed Muzaffar of Union City. He is facing charges of vehicular manslaughter with gross negligence and failure to yield to pedestrians in a crosswalk.

Uber says in a statement that Muzaffar was not on the job at the time of the accident. His account was deactivated after the crash.
