1. be liable to:
likely to be affected by a particular kind of problem, illness etc [= be prone to]
e.g. You're more liable to injury when you don't get regular exercise.
當所指意思是「易受...之患」時，就用"be liable to"，意義等同於"be prone to"。
2. liable to/for:
likely to be legally punished or forced to do something by law
He declaired that he was not liable for his wife's debts.
Anyone found trespassing is liable to a maximum fine of $100.
當所指為「在法律上有...責任」時，可用"be liable to/for"。若要細分，for用在義務方面，to則是懲罰方面。
