Giok is quite correct in saying, "... if they accept it for shipment it is their responsibility to take proper care of it."
I don't want to start a big row about disclaimers and such, but, the point of law is that as soon as they take your money, there is a contract which includes the expectation that you baggage will be cared for. If damage occurs, the party that caused the damage or allowed the damage to be caused is liable for that damage... PERIOD!
They can say all they want. They can even put it in writing. But, they cannot change contract law.
Unless you sign something. I don't. They still take my money.
