 Maritime Trade Law

Maritime trade law regulates the legal issues regarding ships and their navigation. There are eight subcategories in Turkish maritime trade law, each specializing in one major issue in maritime trade law. In order for a ship to be liable for maritime trade law in Turkey, it needs to be fitting to the definition of “ship” in Turkish maritime trade law. If a ship does not fit the definition, it is not liable by maritime trade law.

It is essential to know that it is quite vital that whether the ship is a commercial ship or not can completely change the legal process. Moreover, the owner of the ship must be fitting to the definition of “an individual who has a ship for the sake of making profit out of maritime trade.”

The scope of services given in terms of maritime trade law includes any inconveniences that occurred during sea transportation, legal disagreements, claim for compensation due to crashes, individual injuries, sea pollution ship foreclosure, and sea insurance. If the shipowner did not take the necessary precautions in the maritime trade law, they are liable for the accuses might be charged for them.
