Partner Jason C. Palmer recently presented a webinar on the basics of cargo claims under the Carmack Amendment to the Iowa Motor Truck Association (IMTA). His presentation discussed the basics of Carmack claims and what constitutes “delivery” of cargo under Carmack. It also covered defenses to the Carmack Amendment including the “Savage” rule and limiting the liability of the carrier through the bill of lading and tariffs.
