CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES

Those damages or those losses which arise not from the immediate act of the party, but in consequence of such act; such as if a man throws a log into the public streets and another falls upon it and become injured by the fall; or if a man should erect a dam over his own ground, and by that means overflow his neighbor's, to his injury.

The form of action to be instituted for consequential damages caused without force is by action on the case.
