PRINCIPLE: Under an established tort law, a person has no legal remedy for an injury caused to him, by an act to which he has himself consented, expressly or impliedly.
FACTS: Every evening, Rania Mirza went to the Tennis Institute near her home to practice tennis. On one such evening, as she walked into the academy, she was looking at the ground, lost in her thoughts. Suddenly, a tennis ball came flying from the court and hit her on the head. The head injury was not severe, but as a result of the sudden hit, her steps faltered and she fell, and got scratches on her legs and arms. She decided to go to the nearby hospital and get her wounds dressed. On the way, she got hit by a speeding vehicle that was travelling well above the permissible speed limit. Does Rania have a remedy against the driver of the vehicle?
  • a)
    Yes, since she had not consented to being hit by a vehicle
  • b)
    Yes, because rash and negligent driving is an offence
  • c)
    No, because Rania should have asked someone for help and not gone alone
  • d)
    No, because she was lost in her boyfriend’s thought as she was crossing the road
