    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

    e.g.

    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。
