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. The family said they didn’t have insurance to cover this type of event and will likely pursue some legal assistance. Read the rest »

Party Causes Apartment Floor Collapse in Texas

On behalf of Joel Rhine of Rhine Law Firm, P.C. posted January 22, 2018

A party in a third-floor unit at Ridge Apartments, a student complex in Denton, Texas, recently ended unexpectedly. The party of mostly students from the University of North Texas was interrupted when the floor collapsed, creating a massive hole into the apartment below. The fire department responded to 911 calls, and fortunately there were no life-threatening injuries. When responders arrived, some individuals were “dangling” between the floors.

NBC News reports that over 4,500 people have visited emergency rooms after deck collapses in the last decade. Across the U.S, an estimated 40 million decks exist, many several decades old. Read the rest »

How Safe Is Your Vacation Home?

On behalf of Joel Rhine of Rhine Law Firm, P.C. posted June 28, 2017

North Carolina’s tourism industry is fueling the economy. In 2015, 54 million travelers spent over $21 billion statewide. Approximately 211,000 jobs are supported; and traveler spending generated $2.9 billion in tax revenue. The coastal regions have an abundance of vacation rental homes. Many are privately owned with local management agencies that facilitate the rentals. The 1999 NC Vacation Rental Act (VRA) was enacted, creating a standard for rights and obligations of landlords, real estate brokers, and tenants. Several accidents recently have heightened concerns regarding the safety of aging rental properties. Read the rest »
