Our practice includes not only aviation but many other areas in which
our technical and engineering backgrounds, together with our legal experience,
gained in local, national and international settings, have enabled us to
successfully represent clients in the following areas:
PRODUCTS LIABILITY: From the investigation of the explosion of a Mk 67
hand grenade at a large U.S. Army facility, to the review and investigation of
the installation and analysis of the failure of a computer controlled door
system at a state correctional institution, the lawyers at Mineo & Mineo
continue to represent their clients in the complex area of liability for product
defects. Whether prosecuting an investigation to determine the cause of an
engine failure that resulted in the death of a client's husband to the
investigation into why a complex mechanical device failed to perform in the
manner in which it was designed, the combination of engineering investigation
and legal analysis and representation continues to benefit the firm's clients.
LAW: Along with aviation accidents, the members of Mineo & Mineo have
personally investigated and litigated cases involving automobile and train
collisions, commercial truck and automobile collisions, and boating accidents.
Utilizing an approach that they developed while investigating commercial
aircraft disasters, these ground and water based cases also require a knowledge
of the interaction of state and federal law and the ability to work with many
safety agencies such as state police, highway commissions, railway safety
boards, and the United States Coast Guard.
LAW: The lawyers at Mineo & Mineo continue to be directly involved with the
investigation and litigation of numerous construction accidents and building
material failures. These have included the catastrophic failure of concrete
grain silos to the systematic failure of multiple earthen dams. The ability of
members of Mineo & Mineo to actively participate with state, local and federal
investigators during the actual investigation of these types of disasters has
been and continues to be a value added component that has enhanced our client's
ability to successfully prosecute and/or defend these types of cases.
