Cargo claims

The English law materials deal with three issues: the extent of a carrier’s obligations, the right to sue the carrier under a bill of lading (or certain other documents) for breach of those obligations, and the evidential value of a bill of lading. Certain legislation of the United States is also set out in this Part, for reasons noted below.
