General Average Losses

General Average Losses

Definition

Maritime partial losses sustained from voluntary sacrifice, such as jettisoning part of the cargo, to save the ship or crew, or from extraordinary expenses incurred by one of the parties for everyone's benefit, such as the cost to tow a disabled vessel. General average losses are proportioned between the shipowner and cargo owners, usually according to the York Antwerp Rules.
