Unexpected, unforeseen event not under the control of the insured and resulting in a loss. The insured cannot purposefully cause the loss to happen; the loss must be due to pure chance according to the odds of the laws of probability. For example, under a personal automobile policy (pap) if an accident occurs, the insured is covered for loss due to his/her negligent act or omissions resulting in bodily injury or property damage to another party.
