consequential loss:
(1829)

1. A loss-arising from the results of damage rather than from the damage itself.  *  A consequential loss is proximate when the natural and probable effect of the wrongful conduct, under the circumstances, is to set in operation the intervening cause from which the loss directly results.  When the loss is not the natural and probable effect of the wrongful conduct, the loss is remote. — aka indirect loss; consequential injury.
