“The person who consents cannot complain.”
It is a Latin maxim, which means that the person who voluntarily gives consent for any harm to suffer would not be liable to claim any damages for the same. This consent could be used as a good defence against the plaintiff. Hence, the person who himself waived or abandoned his right voluntarily, cannot have any claim over it.
If a person, who went in a cricket stadium to watch a match, gets accidentally hurt by the ball. He cannot claim any damages from the authorities as buying the ticket gives his consent for any harm if suffered.
“It is the duty of a good judge to enlarge his jurisdiction.”
A good judge is one who enlarges his remedial authority. It is the duty of a judge to extend his jurisdiction.
No injury is done to a willing person.
The legal maxim is of latin origin meaning those who voluntarily agree to danger cannot ask remedy for the same. In literal meaning the maxim means that when a person agrees to danger then he cannot file a complaint for any damages suffered by him during the process. Here, it is necessary the consent was taken freely and voluntarily by the person and was not obtained by illegal means, and that the person was aware of what he might be subjecting himself to.
