Standing up for the Rights of Construction Workers
When a legal matter threatens the success of your construction project, it is critical that you consult an attorney who not only understands your situation but also can vigorously protect your interests. Rhine Law Firm, P.C., skillfully represents individuals, contractors, and subcontractors in all construction litigation matters.
Construction can be a dangerous business. Sometimes, workers are put into positions that they should never be in. Construction companies are responsible for properly inspecting building sites and providing safety programs, yet thousands of workers are killed or injured during construction every year – many of them because of someone else’s negligence or carelessness.
Offering Highly Experienced Legal Representation in Your Construction Matters
Based in Wilmington, managing partner Joel Rhine leads our civil litigation practice. He is nationally recognized for his in-depth understanding of construction law and has shared his knowledge with other attorneys at continuing legal education seminars around the country.
Joel, along with the rest of our construction litigation lawyers, offers our clients extensive experience handling a wide range of construction litigation issues, ranging from matters involving:
- Disputes between contractor and subcontractor

Standing up for Injured Workers in Construction Accidents
While workers’ compensation will provide some relief regardless of who’s at fault in a construction accident, third parties involved in the project can also be held liable. We regularly collaborate with leading experts in the construction industry regarding specific construction and manufacturing matters when evaluating our clients’ cases, ensuring injured workers are treated fairly. You can expect our attorneys to thoroughly explain your legal rights and options to you.
If you or a loved one was hurt in a construction accident, we can get to the bottom of the issue. Starting with a free consultation, our attorneys can carefully analyze the circumstances of the accident and determine if a subcontractor, a property owner, or the manufacturer of defective equipment, machinery, or materials can be held financially responsible for the work injury, even while you or your loved one is collecting workers’ compensation benefits in the meantime.
Because of North Carolina statutes of limitations, a lawsuit must be filed before a certain expiration date. If you think you may have a case, whether the incident took place in Brunswick County, Pender County, or anywhere else in the state, call us promptly to ensure that you do not waive your right to possible compensation.
Our goal is to help you resolve your construction matters as quickly and efficiently as possible. We urge you to call Rhine Law Firm, P.C., to learn more about what our lawyers can do for you.
