Consequential damages are one kind of damages that can be awarded in a case for an agreement where one party feels that the other side of obligations were not entirely fulfilled. Consequential damages (also sometimes referred to as indirect or “special” damages), include loss of product and loss of profit or revenue and may be recovered if it is determined such damages were reasonably foreseeable or "within the contemplation of the parties" at the time of the contract.
