Volenti non fit injuria

“Volenti non fit injuria” is a Latin phrase which means “to one who is willing, no harm is done” or “to a willing person, no injury is done.” This legal maxim implies that if someone voluntarily participates in an activity or consents to a situation, they cannot later claim that they were wronged or injured by it. It is often used in cases where individuals knowingly take a risk or engage in an activity with full knowledge of its potential consequences.
