Stutman Law Prevails on Contract Dispute Over Bill of Lading

Stutman Law’s client insured an entity that contracted with a cargo carrier to ship new windows across the country for use at a job site. The windows were damaged in transit, and the cargo carrier argued that its bill of lading significantly limited both its liability and damages. Stutman Law engaged in an in-depth analysis of the bill of lading and applicable contract law, and ultimately established that the limitations relied upon by the cargo carrier were not properly incorporated into the bill of lading. The terms did not limit the cargo carrier’s liability or damages, and Stutman Law obtained a $250,000 recovery for its client.
