Consequential Injuries and Workers Compensation

Injuries or disabilities that are the direct and natural consequence of a previous compensable injury are compensable. Medical causation is a key element here. A consequential injury is one in which the injury is a consequence of the admitted, compensable injury. For instance, a worker might sustain an injury to the right knee. The worker then relies on the left knee more than anticipated and more than the left knee can bear. A left knee problem develops. This is known as a consequential injury.
