USPS postal claim

I sent a DVD drive to the UK, and it got there in pieces. I didn't take insurance out on the package when i posted it. Am i entitled to any compensation from the USPS?

You can get insurance to some countries for international packages through USPS, but if you didn't get insurance, you're SOL. If they compensated you anyway, they wouldn't be offering insurance.

In the UK, you automatically get about $50 worth of insurance - you just need to obtain proof of posting which was why i was asking as this is new to me.

Must get insurance, or else USPS will always say "tough luck".
