Statue of Limitations

Dear members and viewers

Sadly we have had a couple of cases which fell foul of Maritime legislation, so this is a reminder to all, if you are going to take a shipping company to court , you must have your case lodged within the first 12 months, this then goes under the 3 year Statue of Limitations (which includes first 12 mths) this applies Under US maritime Laws.

The system is also similar in UK and various Maritime Nations and Flag State’s.

We also think this legislation should be changed, we feel this is needed especially if information comes forth after the 12 mths and 3 year limitation……….
