Abstract

A tort can take place in forms of trespass, battery, assault, malicious prosecution, defamation or any other form. However, a person can evade tortious liability even after himself committing the wrong by resorting to several defenses like ‘act of god’ , ‘plaintiff is the wrongdoer’, ‘inevitable accident’ and several others.One such defense against any tortious act is ‘voleni-non-fit-injuria’. This paper talks about the concept, history, exception and nuances of 'Volenti-Non-Fit-Injuria'.

Keywords: Volenti Non Fit Injuria, Torts, Ulpian, Scienti Non Fit Injuria
