Suits by bailees or bailors against wrong-doers (Section 180 – 181)

Section 180 : Suit by bailor or bailee against wrong-doer

If a third person wrongfully deprives the bailee of the use or possession of the goods bailed, or does them any injury, the bailee is entitled to use such remedies as the owner might have used in the like case if no bailment had been made; and either the bailor or the bailee may bring a suit against a third person for such deprivation or injury.

Section 181 : Apportionment of relief or compensation obtained by such suits

Whatever is obtained by way of relief or compensation in any such suit shall, as between the bailor and the bailee, be dealt with according to their respective interests.
