What is a consequential injury or condition?

Consequential Injury: Any injury or illness occurring as a result of/due to treatment of accepted occupational illness or covered condition .Consequential condition, injury or illness must occur AFTER primary condition accepted.
For establishing a consequential condition, the FECA act and the DFEC procedure manual clearly outline that if the second injury or medical condition is a result of an accepted OWCP injury then the second injury is a consequence of the original injury and the second injury would be accepted by OWCP. After the original acceptance of a claim, an injury occurring outside the performance of duty may affect the compensability of an existing accepted injury. Consequential Injury. This kind of injury occurs because of weakness or impairment caused by a work-related injury, and it may affect the same part of the body as the original injury or a different area altogether.
