What to Do If You’ve Suffered Hearing Loss Due to Military-Issued 3M Earplugs

On behalf of Joel Rhine of Rhine Law Firm, P.C. posted February 11, 2019

Workers’ Comp Options for Asbestos Exposure Victims

On behalf of Joel Rhine of Rhine Law Firm, P.C. posted December 3, 2018

Sometimes, workers who are simply doing their job get placed in harm’s way. In some cases, even the employers were unaware that their workers were at risk. This is especially true when certain products and materials used in standard construction are later found to be harmful.

Unfortunately, asbestos was used as a widespread insulation and heat-retarding product for many years until it was linked to multiple diseases, such as asbestosis, asbestos-related cancer, and mesothelioma. Read the rest »
