The Aliakmon

[1986] 1 AC 785

Case summary last updated at 19/01/2020 15:16 by the Oxbridge Notes in-house law team.

Judgement for the case The Aliakmon

P had some contractual rights (but NOT ownership) over some goods that were damaged due to D’s (carrier’s) negligence. HL denied P’s tortious claim since in order to make a claim in tort regarding damage to possessions, you have to have legal ownership or possessory title, at the time when the goods were damaged.
