    Hazard is the incurring the possibility of loss or harm for the possibility of benefit; danger may have no compensating alternative.

Accidents are incalculable; casualties may be to a certain extent anticipated; death and wounds are casualties of battle, certain to happen to some, but uncertain as to whom or how many. A contingency is simply an indeterminable future event, which may or may not be attended with danger or risk. See ACCIDENT; DANGER.
