Liability for delay of the Rail Carrier



Supreme Court, 14 Jan. 2016, n°14-28227: The obligation of timely delivery undertaken by the rail carrier amounts to a strict obligation, for which the carrier may only exclude his liability by proving that the delay was a consequence of an external circumstance that is not attributable to him. In case of breach, the carrier must indemnify only the damage foreseeable when concluding the contract and resulting immediately and directly from the breach.
