Volenti Non Fit Injuria

From lawbrain.com

[Latin, To the consenting, no injury is done.] In the law of negligence, the precept that denotes that a person who knows and comprehends the peril and voluntarily exposes himself or herself to it, although not negligent in doing so, is regarded as engaging in an assumption of the risk and is precluded from a recovery for an injury ensuing therefrom.
