What Is 'Voluntary Assumption Of The Risk' In A Civil Claim?
Assumption of Risk is a defense in tort law. It is the principle that the Plaintiff assumed the risk based on showing that he know the danger, understood the risk involved and chose to encounter it voluntarily. Accordingly, if the court finds that this is so, they may reduce the Plaintiff’s damages or simply dismiss the claim.
