Rubin, with offices in the Bronx and White Plains, New York, our attorneys understand that you require swift justice in order to secure the compensation you are entitled to when you are injured through the negligent acts of another party.
Our fee is contingent in personal injury cases. This means that our fee is a percentage of the compensation we obtain for you in regard to your injury. If there is no recovery, there is no fee.

Motor vehicle accidents — Generally, people who operate motor vehicles must exercise reasonable care, and failure to use reasonable care is considered negligence. A person who negligently operates a vehicle may be required to pay for any damages, either to a person or property, caused by his or her negligence. The Law Offices of Mark B. Rubin represents individuals and their families who have been seriously injured or killed as a result of the negligence, carelessness or recklessness of others in motor vehicle accidents such as car or automobile accidents, semitruck or tractor-trailer accidents, motorcycle accidents, bicycle accidents, and pedestrian accidents. Our detailed understanding of automobile, insurance and liability laws means we understand the different sources of recovery available to motor vehicle accident victims and their families as well as the various theories of liability that enable those victims to collect from the parties who caused them harm. We will ensure that you receive fair compensation from the insurance company or at-fault party by aggressively pursuing your interests. Contact us today for a free initial consultation.
Premises liability — Premises liability is a rather vague term that serves as a catchall for many types of events, including those involving structural design flaws, unsafe conditions, environmental hazards, improper traffic patterns and a wide range of other issues unrelated to security per se. Too often, property owners neglect the condition of their property, which creates a dangerous condition.
When you are injured due to a property owner allowing ice and snow to accumulate on walkways, or allowing a liquid or foreign substance to remain on walkways or stairs, or a grocery store neglecting to clean up a slippery spill in an aisle, or a property owner allowing a ceiling to leak and then fall, causing injury, you may be able to recover for your injuries. If you have been injured due to a slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall accident, we have the knowledge and skill to protect your legal rights. Contact the Law Offices of Mark B. Rubin for a free initial consultation.
Medical malpractice and health care negligence law — Though the majority of health care providers do good work, medical mistakes are sometimes made that can adversely affect a person, as well as their friends and family, for the rest of their lives. A medical malpractice case involves injuries arising from the care or treatment rendered by a medical provider. Medical providers include physicians, nurses, hospitals, psychologists and a variety of other medical professionals.
There are many different kinds of medical malpractice, but some examples are: dispensing the wrong medicine or the wrong dose of medicine; improper reading of X-rays; transfusion errors; the misdiagnosis of a life-threatening condition; surgery on the wrong limb; accidents during surgery; infections related to treatment; birth trauma; preventable suicide; restraint-related injuries; burns, falls and pressure ulcers. If you believe you’ve been the victim of a medical mistake, contact the Law Offices of Mark B. Rubin to evaluate and handle your case as quickly as possible. There are complicated and stringent statutes of limitations for medical malpractice cases that limit the amount of time an injured individual has to file a lawsuit.
Train accidents/subway accidents – If you have been injured as a passenger on a train or subway, you may be able to bring a claim against the entity that operates the train or subway. The Law Offices of Mark B. Rubin‘s experience with lawsuits and claims against governmental and municipal entities will help guide you through the process of bringing a claim against the responsible entity.
When dealing with governmental entities, including the transit authority, there are important deadlines and statutes of limitations to keep in mind. If you have been injured on a train or subway, contact the Law Offices of Mark B. Rubin to guarantee that you meet the necessary deadlines, and to help you get fairly compensated for your injuries.
