Chapter Summary


This chapter, Inland Marine Insurance, from Goods in Transit provides detailed coverage of the function of inland marine insurance. The chapter begins with a discussion of the background of inland marine insurance. It then discusses the nation-wide definition and interpretation of marine and inland marine insurance. The chapter next covers the notion that inland marine insurance concerns goods "in transit." In addition, it considers the meaning of "in transit," "in the course of transportation," and similar terms. The chapter also addresses the time, period, and place of coverage. It further discusses the extension of time and place of coverage in marine and inland marine policies. The chapter additionally addresses property floater policies and concludes with discussion of coverage clauses in inland marine policies.

Goods in Transit (Matthew Bender) analyzes how to recover or avoid liability for lost, damaged or delayed goods shipped by air, sea, rail or truck anywhere in the world.

Further, it discusses termination of common carrier liability; carrier litigation; insurance contracts; marine insurance; inland marine insurance; and liability insurance financial responsibility laws. It also provides information on written notice of claims; liability of brokers and third-party intermediaries; negotiation of settlement; limitation and damages for delay; and limitation of damages and liability. Additionally, Goods in Transit discusses indemnity actions; freight; rates; demurrage; lien of carriers upon cargo; C.O.D. shipments; and actions and proceedings involving charges and overcharges.
