Legal Question

Asked on: 4/06/13, 2:51 pm

A mover I retained to ship a refrigerator - wine cooler- severely damaged the cooler in shipment. I am in small claims court with them having set up a trial date in May. Their lawyer responding at the earlier motion said they are not responsible chiefly because 'it was already packaged in a cartoon and we had no opportunity to inspect the cooler'. I saw on the bill of laden they provided to me when they picked up the cooler that there was a box,'PICKUP REMARKS, which says, 'must inventory wine cooler in carton. HANDLE WITH CARE'. Does this undermine their lawyers defense of not being able to inspect the cooler?
