About fifty cases of LOF are reported each year by Lloyd`s, of which only 25% on average are dealt with in arbitration. Most are processed for commercial purposes. UIS members are expected to be realistic in their safety requirements and price/settlement expectations in cases where these are modest and simple rescue services. In the United States, there is no contract between the owner of the goods and the salvor for pure rescue (also called “Merit Salvage”). The relationship is a relationship that is implicit in the law. Salvaged property, which is pure and saved, must assert its right to recovery before a competent court, and the latter will grant the rescue on the basis of the “merit” of the service and the value of the recovered property. .
