Recoverability of Pure Economic Loss Arising from Ship-Source Oil Pollution

By Yuna Huang

This book focuses on liability and compensation for negligently caused pure economic loss as a general question in tort law and specifically as a question in maritime tort law, especially in cases of oil pollution damage. A substantial part of this study is dedicated to the examination of the legal status of pure economic loss caused by ship-source oil pollution incidents, the outer margins of recoverable losses as well as compensation practice, from both an international and a national perspective. The compensation practices of the IOPC Funds have been analysed carefully for this purpose.
