  • Uber contract drivers helped bring in more than three-quarters of the company's revenue in this year's first six months.
  • "They are not Uber drivers," Valentino, Uber executive said. "They're independent, third-party transportation providers."
  • Uber faces many lawsuits, over issues ranging from fender benders to wage disputes to more-serious incidents. 
  • If Uber drivers are reclassified as employees, Uber is susceptible to a new range of liabilities and will be held more responsible for their actions. 

Victims who were injured by an Uber driver or during an Uber ride deserve just compensation.
