      Assumption of Risk

       

      In tort or injury lawsuits, assumption of risk is a legal defense or doctrine. The assumption of risk holds that a plaintiff relieves another party of a duty of care in a negligence claim because the plaintiff knowingly and willingly accepted the risk of injury, thus relieving a defendant of liability.
