Marine Claims Handbook explains the correct procedure to follow and the documentation which must be prepared from the occurrence of a casualty to the settlement of a claim. It is a reliable reference for the principles of marine insurance claims and has been written for the person at the ‘sharp end' of shipping business.
Twelve years have passed since the publication of the 4ed and this edition has been brought completely up to date to cover, inter alia: the latest revision of the Institute Time Clauses - Hull (1995); the York Antwerp Rules 1994; and recent developments in shipowners' liabilities insurance. Once a claim has arisen Marine Claims Handbook will be invaluable in explaining clearly and succinctly what should be happening, what you should be doing and when you should be doing it.
Marine Claims Handbook comprises ten key sections: claims on policies of insurance on ship; steps from casualty to collect claim; general average and salvage; a comparison of English and American Hull Clauses; particular average claims on ship; shopowners' liabilities; claims presentation and evidence; claims on policies of insurance on goods; cargo claims procedure and evidence; and a comprehensive appendix containing all the essential rules and forms.
Essential reading for shipowners, insurance brokers, insurers, claims handlers and legal advisers to the shipping and insurance industries.
