It is common for the liability of the carrier to be limited under the international regimes regarding means of transportation other than the carriage by air or sea. Therefore, conventions regarding other means of transportation also employ provisions for breaking the limits. However, mostly depending on the time when the conventions have been adopted, the wording employed by the conventions differs: some adopt the unamended Warsaw Convention version, some the definition adopted by the Hague Protocol of 1955 (sometimes with slight changes), and some refer only to specific terms for the necessary degree of fault for breaking the liability limits. In this chapter, after giving an overview of the conventions, solutions adopted by the conventions in order to deprive the carrier of the liability limits will be briefly addressed.
