Policy Purpose

This policy applies to a separate injury which is not a recurrence of the original compensable injury, but where there may be a causal relationship between the further injury and the original compensable injury. For example, such an injury could arise out of medical surgery related to the original compensable injury.

This policy establishes the principles where a further injury is compensable.
