going slightly back to the beginning of the post, it was written that the second version would be how this would be claimed. Liable for $ 2000 because it goes by the total weight of the shipment. How can the claim be against the total shipment when only 50 units were damaged. Would it not be 50 units x weight of units - equalling total weight x $ 2/ lb ? I can't see how if 50 units were damaged, you would factor in the total weight of the shipment to cover the loss. Also.. another question. If the shipper secured the units, would he not be responsible at this point ? and second off. they brought the freight back and had it swapped out for good product. Is it written anywhere that the damaged product was returned ? if not, in the case with a shipper being a ****, could you not say I picked up 100 units and delivered 100 units.. prove I damaged 50. ? ? ?
