An inevitable accident; one which could not have been prevented by exercise of due care by both parties under circumstances prevailing. Woodiwiss v. Rise, 3 Wash.App. 5, 471 P.2d 124, 126.
Not necessarily an accident which was physically impossible, in the nature of things for the person to have prevented, but one not occasioned in any degree, either remotely or directly, by the want of such care or skill as the law holds every person bound to exercise. Such type accident is present when an event occurs which was not proximately caused by the negligence of any party to the event. Molina v. Payless Foods, Inc., Tex.Civ.App., 615 S.W.2d 944, 946.

@ unavoidable casualty
An event or accident which human prudence, foresight, and sagacity cannot prevent, happening against will and without negligence. Sabin v. Sunset Garden Co., 184 Okl. 106, 85 P.2d 294, 295.
Within the meaning of statutes in several states relating to the vacation of judgments, means some casualty or misfortune growing out of conditions or circumstances that prevented the party or his attorney from doing something that, except therefor, would have been done, and does not include mistakes or errors of judgment growing out of misconstruction or understanding of the law, or the failure of parties or counsel through mistake to avail themselves of remedies, which if resorted to would have prevented the casualty or misfortune. If by any care, prudence, or foresight a thing could have been guarded against, it is not unavoidable. The term is not ordinarily limited to an act of God.
