Types of Personal Injury Cases Attorney Mark S. Rubenstein Handles
On behalf of our clients, we pursue compensation in a range of personal injury matters.
Car accidents are one of the most common causes of preventable accidents in Breckenridge and throughout Colorado. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), in 2018, 32,719 people died, and 2,313,000 were injured in traffic accidents. The majority of these accidents were entirely preventable, had motorists taken the necessary precautions.
Motorcyclists lack the protection of an enclosed vehicle. As a result, Breckenridge motorcycle accident injuries are often incredibly serious, frequently causing life-long injuries or permanent disability. In fact, according to the NHTSA, more than 80% of all motorcycle crashes result in injury or death for the rider. Adding to the risk motorcyclists face is the fact that most other motorists are unfamiliar with driving around motorcyclists, increasing the chance of a serious accident.
As reported by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), bicyclists make up approximately 2% of all traffic fatalities in the nation every year. Like motorcycle crashes, the consequences of a Breckenridge bicycle accident are often deadly.
According to NHTSA, on average, 13 pedestrians are killed, and 181 injured in traffic accidents every day in the U.S. Many of these accidents are due to negligent motorists failing to follow traffic laws. However, under Colorado personal injury law, injured pedestrians can still bring a case against a driver even if they were partially responsible for the accident. It is only if a pedestrian is 50% or more at fault that they cannot recover for their injuries.
Slip and Fall Claims
All property owners, including homeowners, businesses, and government entities, have a duty to ensure a safe location for their guests. The extent of a property owner’s duty to a guest depends on the reason for the guest’s visit, with the highest duty owed to customers and others who are present on the property for the landowner’s financial gain.
Product Liability Cases
Every business is responsible for products that they manufacture, distribute, or sell. When a product suffers from a design or manufacturing defect or does not provide the consumer with an adequate warning, any business in the supply chain may be liable through a Breckenridge product liability claim. Unlike other types of personal injury claims, product liability claims do not typically require an injured consumer to establish a business was negligent; it is often enough to prove that the defective or dangerous product caused their injuries.
Wrongful Death Claims
When an individual or business causes another’s death, the surviving family members of the deceased accident victim can pursue a Breckenridge wrongful death claim. Grieving families can file a wrongful death claim after any fatal accident, including motor vehicle accidents, slip and falls, and accidents caused by defective or dangerous products.
Regardless of the type of accident that caused your injuries, Attorney Mark S. Rubinstein can help. He has more than 25 years of experience helping accident victims and their families recover the compensation they need and deserve after a serious accident. With his help, you may be able to recover for your medical expenses, lost wages, and any pain and suffering you endured as a result of the accident.

Our Summit County Office in Dillon/Breckenridge, Colorado
Breckenridge was founded in 1859 by a small group of prospectors, after which the Gold Rush brought in droves of settlers. The town became known as “Colorado’s Kingdom” when it was inadvertently left off the U.S. map in the mid-1800s.
Dredge mining with the use of gold dredging boats began in 1898. The boats worked the creeks and riverbeds in the area for more than 20 years, permanently altering the landscape in the process.
Today Breckenridge is a Rocky Mountain ski resort town, where tourists go for the breathtaking scenery, skiing, sledding, and snowshoeing in the winter, and hiking, fishing and watersports in the summer.
