Some even call for its replacement with a no-fault based system which would require a rewriting of of the law of torts, most especially negligence. Fault principle is a fact that is hard to establish and depends on the factors that influence a case at the time. As the workings of the law evolve to one that cites a no-liability system as the best one for trying tort cases especially when strict liability became necessary when as increasingly high risks were handled. Here fault based liability failed to serve its balancing function where due care is not aimed at avoiding risk but handling risk in suitable manner.
Arguably, Benedict had a free choice whether to accept the risk or not. However, the defence of ‘volenti’ would be hard to prove because debatably Benedict was unaware of the risk and so, could not have consented to it as Jenifer’s statement created a ‘false sense of safety’. There is also the defence of contributory negligence which will reduce compensation payable. This arises where the claimant causes or contributes to their own harm by failing to take reasonable care for their own safety.
Rescuse cases (Volenti non fit injuria) • The defence of Volenti non fit injuria is inapplicable in the rescue cases • If the plaintiff voluntarily takes a risk to rescue somebody from the danger created by the wrongful act of the defendant • He will have tight to bring an action for damages against the defendant • The Doctrine of assumption of risk does not apply where the plaintiff has under an emergency caused by the defendant’s wrongful misconduct, Consciously and deliberatively, Consciously and deliberatively faced a risk, even death to rescue another from imminent danger of personal injury.

The claimant’s claim was therefore unsuccessful. 2.5 The Reasonable Man A reasonable person would not fall below the standards of any ordinary reasonable person in any situation. If falled below standards of reasonableness, the defendant will be known as negligent.
Arden LJ argued (at 68) that the Claimant did not plan to stop performing the contract. Underhill LJ (at 34) agreed that the Claimant intended to fulfill his obligations but inconsistently and that substantially inconsistent fulfillment of the contract constitutes a repudiation. Floyd LJ (at 52 and 53) agreed that substantially inconsistent performance “…may amount to a renunciation…”. At the same time, Lord Justice argued that not all such breaches entitled the other party to terminate the contract; the nature of the contract and the consequences of the breach should be evaluated.

The general rule is that silence cannot amount to acceptance , and Ben’s failure to reply to the email is consistent with silence. However, an exception to this rule was discussed in Empirnall, where it was held that where the offeree acts exactly in accordance with the conditions of the offer, then this can constitute an acceptance by conduct. This requirement is extinguished in the case of unilateral contracts, which require the offeree to perform his/her obligations under the bargain as acceptance of the offer. A binding agreement is formed upon completion of the performance.
