On behalf of Joel Rhine of Rhine Law Firm, P.C. posted May 23, 2018

The last Monday in May each year is Memorial Day. The holiday originated in Waterloo, New York; it was initially intended to honor those who perished in the American Civil War, and now commemorates all those who have died in service to their country.

How North Carolina’s Pure Contributory Negligence Can Maim Your Injury Claim

On behalf of Joel Rhine of Rhine Law Firm, P.C. posted April 25, 2018

There is a particular area of North Carolina law that can pose problems for plaintiffs in personal injury cases. North Carolina uses a “pure” contributory negligence rule, which prohibits a plaintiff from recovering any damages from a defendant in an accident if the plaintiff’s negligence is found to have contributed to the accident, even if only 1%. Those who are critical of pure contributory negligence refer to it as an “all or nothing” rule. The rule exists only in a few eastern locations, including Washington, D.C., Alabama, Maryland, and Virginia. Read the rest »

The recent crash in South Carolina is the latest example—and it’s also the third fatal Amtrak collision in under two months. Read the rest »

When a Ceiling Collapses in Public Housing

On behalf of Joel Rhine of Rhine Law Firm, P.C. posted March 31, 2018

A man in Brooklyn who lived on the top floor of the Weeksville Gardens Public Housing Development in Crown Heights was woken up around 2 a.m. by a loud noise. The ceiling in an adjoining bedroom had collapsed on top of Daniel Jeter Sr.’s girlfriend and son. Jeter rushed in and was able to pull the two from the plaster, insulation, and other debris. No one was seriously injured; however, this public housing complex has had similar collapses in the last year.
