Marine Liability

Marine Liability

Offering specialist legal expertise, our experienced Marine Liability Team will arrange cover to meet your legal liabilities arising from the negligence of your staff or subcontractors under marine related contracts with your customers or carriers, or simply under the common law. A typical policy covers liability for loss and damage to cargo, damage to vessel, damage to third party property and persons, as well as statutory liability, such as pollution or customs fines. Insurance may more broadly cover liability attaching to you as an agent for negligent performance, or more narrowly cover specific risks, such as container liability.

We offer a contractual risk assessment service to better negotiate terms with your insurer which will ensure best possible coverage.

Balanced with this, our legally qualified claims staff intercedes with insurers on your behalf for admission of claims and for a faster outcome, whether that requires defending or settling claims, utilising the cover provided under the Legal Expenses section of your policy.

Compendium offers a broad spectrum of covers including but not limited to –

  • Freight Forwarders or Logistics Liability
  • Warehouse and Terminal Liability
  • Carrier’s Liability
  • Stevedores Liability
  • Ships Agency Liability
  • Charterers Liability
