A distinctive feature of non-contractual liability as a legal concept is the existence of noncontractual liability for parties that are not in a contractual relationship with each other. The damage caused in this case will be recognized as a consequence of actions not related to the violation of contractual obligations. In this situation, the tortfeasor violates the general absolute obligation not to encroach on other people’s subjective rights. It should be noted that non-contractual liability is often equated with delictual liability arising from harm. Delictual liability is the most common among non-contractual liability. However, the concept of non-contractual liability is much deeper and subject to expanded interpretation, that is, it includes various cases of liability in the absence of contracts besides delictual liability. Problematic issues related to non-contractual liability in maritime transport are an urgent problem in contemporary legislation. Resolving the given issues will be useful for law enforcement. The author investigates problematic issues of the application of non-contractual liability in maritime transport, and proposes to clarify and supplement the legislation in the field under consideration.
