Cargo Carrier’s Liability in National Maritime Laws – a Comparative Review
KeywordsCarrier’s liability, cargo, maritime law, national law
The aim of the article is to compare selected national maritime laws, in the area of the cargo carrier’s liability. The author has analyzed the liability regime in the several most important parts of this regime. The connection between the national maritime regulations and the international maritime conventions regulating the carrier’s liability is an important issue. The reason is that the national provisions are often constructed following the example of the international conventions. However, national regulations usually have their legal solutions. This is the reason why the liability regimes which apply to maritime cargo carriers have a lot of differences, even if they have been enacted by states which are parties to the same maritime conventions. In this article, the author attempts to analyze which maritime conventions have had the most significant influence in each maritime law and also to compare each regulation in the selected parts of the liability regime.
