The terms of the settlement were not disclosed.
Christopher Dolan, attorney for the Liu family, said in a statement, “The family will only say that while nothing will ever bring Sofia back, they are grateful to the American judicial system for providing them a way to resolve the legal issues raised by Sofia’s death. They now hope to move forward as a family and rebuild their lives as best they can.”
An Uber spokeswoman told CNET, “The Liu’s suffered a terrible tragedy — and our hearts go out to them. While we cannot ease their pain, we do hope this settlement helps the family move forward.”
