The Professional Salvor's Liability in the Law of Negligence and the Doctrine of Affirmative Damages

By Miso Mudric

The research in this book examines the issue of professional salvor's liability for damage caused due to negligent performance of salvage services. Analysis is focused on the relevant international law (1989 Salvage Convention, 1976 LLMC Convention, and the 1992 CLC Convention), the (professional) liability provisions of the chosen number of jurisdictions (England/Wales, Germany, France, and the US), the standard salvage contract forms, the standard of care, the relevant salvage case law, the sanctions for poor or non-performance, and the methods of calculating the limitation of liability.
