“Uber drivers are employees of this billion dollar company, not independent contractors and deserve the same rights, benefits and compensation as permitted under New York State Law,” said Marc Held, a partner at Held and Hines.

“It is heartbreaking for any parent to be informed that their child was severely hurt during a class because proper safety protocols were not followed. We hope Syracuse University will learn from this incident and ensure that no other students get hurt like Gabriel Sansone,” Held charged.
