The Essential Law Dictionary. — Sphinx Publishing, An imprint of Sourcebooks, Inc. . 2008.


salvage
a sum payable to a person who saves a ship or its cargo from certain loss. It is not due by contract and, indeed, agreement excludes salvage. It resembles restitution in that the recipient of the salved goods is enriched by the effort of the salvor. It does not precisely fit the scheme of restitution, seen as redressing unjust enrichment, because salvage awards are usually much higher than the expense involved in the rescue.

salvage
n. In general, it is the value of a piece of equipment or other property after it has been functionally rendered useless for the purpose for which it was intended. In the case of a totally wrecked automobile, for example, it is the depreciated value of whatever usable parts that can be resold in used condition, plus the value per pound of the remaining scrap metal; in maritime law it's compensation for a service voluntarily given to a vessel in peril that removes it from danger by the sea; in insurance law, the first definition applies, with the proviso that the amount of salvage is deducted from what is paid to the insured.
