How Cargo Damage Happens
For shippers and insurance companies, cargo loss and damage is an all-too
common occurrence. It can happen via any means of transportation, including:
- Truck (overland)
You may also suffer cargo damage or loss when the cargo is stored in a
warehouse. Negligent security issues can affect cargo in these situations.
How We Can Help
Our Miami maritime lawyers help shippers,
cargo insurance companies and uninsured shippers recover compensation from cargo damaged,
lost or stolen through the Carriage of Goods by Sea Act (COGSA), the Carmack
Amendment, the Montreal Convention and other national and international
laws, treaties and conventions.
These laws define how ship owners, cargo airlines, railroads and truckers
must compensate cargo owners for problems in transit. With transportation
companies looking to reduce liability by interpreting the law in their
favor, our knowledge and experience in maritime transportation have helped
clients resolve their contentious "package limitation" matters.
