Jason Clause


(Negligence General Average Clause) A clause in ocean bills of lading providing that any general average will be borne proportionately by vessel, cargo, and freight even if the general average arises out of the vessel owner's negligence, errors of the master or crew, or unseaworthiness of the vessel. Without this clause, cargo has no obligation to contribute to any general average arising from these causes.
