Implied consent

Implied consent would exist if you take part in a contact sport where the rules of the sport allow contact.

Consent can be either expressed or implied.

Implied consent would exist if you take part in a contact sport.  The rules of the sport permit contact and by agreeing to play you have implied consent to contact by other people taking part in the activity.

Express consent exists when verbal or written contractual agreement occurs.

If a person signs a document stating that he or she is aware of the hazards of an activity, and that person is then injured during that activity, the express consent, given in advance, may excuse another person who caused an injury to that individual.
