unusual case

unusual case
A case which is noteworthy because of either fact or principle involved. A case without precedent. As the expression is used in a workmen’s compensation act requiring the insurer to pay medical bills after the first two weeks in “unusual cases,” the statute has been held to refer to injuries which develop unexpected or unusual complications, requiring the services of experts or unusual treatment. Moore's Case, 255 Mass 533, 535, 152 NE 66,67.
