Limitation of liability clauses

  • Posted

Whilst thankfully the events that unfolded at Old Trafford on Sunday ultimately proved to be a false alarm, with no injury or harm to the public, the cause of the event provides a stark example of why private contractors should carefully review the liability clause in their contracts.

In the absence of a liability cap, an act of negligence by a representative of the contractor causing financial loss to their contracting party, could result in a claim against the contractor for indirect or consequential losses; a claim usually in excess of the original contract value.
