FILE A DAMAGE CLAIM
NOTICE TO CLAIMANTS
Before presenting a claim on account of the loss and damage, the following important information respecting claims should be given careful consideration:
1. The terms under which property is accepted and transported by a carrier are stated on the bill of lading issued by the carrier; also in schedules, tariffs and commodities as described by the carrier. Persons intending to file claims should, before doing so, examine the terms and conditions under which the property was accepted and transported.
2. Carriers are bound by the provisions of law, and any deviation there from by the payment and claims before the facts and measure of legal liability are established will render them as well as the claimant, liable to fines and penalties by law.
3. In order that the carrier may have an opportunity to inspect goods and thereby properly verify claims, any loss or damage discovered after delivery should be reported to the carrier, as far as possible, immediately upon delivery, or within a reasonable amount of time after receipt of goods by consignee.
