As regards the situation where the policy contains a qualification clause but not an exception clause, Concord Insurance Co Ltd v Oelofsen NO (1992 4 SA 669 (A)) is not only instructive but almost conclusive. The executrix in a deceased estate instituted action for payment under a personal accident policy issued by Concord. The policy provided cover if during the period of insurance the insured sustained "bodily injury which independently of any other cause results in the death" of the insured (669G).
