Volenti non fit injuria, or consent, is a defence in tort law where the injured party has voluntarily assumed the known risks. Since Maria signed a waiver acknowledging the risks, the charity can use this defence to argue that she consented to the potential harm.


Key Point: The defence of consent (volenti non fit injuria) is applicable when the injured party has willingly accepted the risks, thereby absolving the defendant of liability.
