Material Injury Law and Legal Definition
Material injury is an injury resulting in damages of a substantial nature as distinguished from merely nominal damages.
The test of removability of goods sold under a conditional sales contract and affixed to the realty is material injury to the freehold, not whether the goods are essential to the functioning of a plant or building. [People's Sav. & Trust Co. v. Munsert, 212 Wis. 449 (Wis. 1933)].
