Chalik and Chalik fights for our client against UBERWe were honored to represent our client in a prior case. When tragedy struck and she was killed in an automobile accident, her family reached out to us again. Our client was on the road and was driving for UBER. She did not have a passenger in her car, but the Uber App was on. She was struck by a drunk driver and lost her life. Our client’s Uninsured motorist insurance as well as the UM insurance for UBER, denied coverage. Chalik and Chalik filed suit. We fought UBER and Progressive and the claims have been resolved to the satisfaction of the family of our former client. We feel blessed that families trust us to represent their loved ones who have been lost through the fault of others.
