Primary Assumption of the Risk In the recreation and sports context, primary assumption of risk is a defense that relieves a defendant of any duty to the plaintiff when the injury is due to a risk that is inherent in an activity in which the plaintiff chose to participate.

LUCIDO, JAMES, ET AL VS. STATE OF CALIFORNIA, ET AL

The State moves for summary judgment pursuant to the doctrine of primary assumption of risk. Although people generally have a duty to use due care to avoid injuring others, there are exceptions to that general rule, based on statute or public policy. Neighbarger v. Irwin Industries, Inc. (1994) 8 Cal.4th 532, 537. One of those exceptions is the public policy expressed in the doctrine of primary assumption of the risk. Id.

YARON VS. PARK

Being hit by a golf club is not an inherent risk in the sport of golf, and defendant is not entitled to summary judgment on the grounds of the primary assumption of the risk doctrine. In the absence of primary assumption of the risk, a reasonably prudent person standard of care governs Defendant’s potential liability. (See Hemady, 143 Cal.App.4th at 579.) Whether there has been a breach of this duty is a question for the jury, not the court. (See Castaneda v. Olsher (2007) 41 Cal.4th 1205, 1227.)

ESTEBAN MIGUEL SILVA JR VS WATTS LEARNING CENTER INC ET AL

Primary assumption of risk applies to touch football because it is an “active sport . . . .” (Knight v. Jewett (1992) 3 Cal.4th 296, 320.) A school’s general duty to supervise students does not “foreclose application of the primary assumption of the risk doctrine to those risks inherent in school sports.” (Lilley v. Elk Grove Unified School Dist. (1998) 68 Cal.App.4th 939, 945–946.)

Jewett (1992) 3 Cal.4th 296, 308, described primary assumption of the risk as encompassing situations when a defendant owes no duty of care to protect the plaintiff from a particular risk, regardless of whether the plaintiff acted reasonably or unreasonably in encountering the risk.

NIGEL HUDSON VS JOHN ELY BACHSIAN ET AL

Instead, they argue in the alternative that her claim is barred by the doctrine of “primary assumption of risk.” (Motion at p. 19.) The doctrine of primary assumption of risk generally applies to the field of sports, “where, by virtue of the nature of the activity and the parties' relationship to the activity, the defendant owes no legal duty to protect the plaintiff from the particular risk of harm that caused the injury.” (Rostai v. Neste Enterprise (2006) 138 Cal.App.4th 326, 331.)

WOLF VS. WEBER

Gouin (1992) 3 th Cal.4 339, the Supreme Court concluded that the ordinary duty of care to avoid injury to others is modified by the doctrine of “primary assumption of the risk.” Primary assumption of the risk negates duty and constitutes a complete bar to recovery. See Knight, supra, 3 Cal.4th at 309- 310, 314-316. Whether primary assumption of the risk applies depends on the nature of the sport or activity in question and the parties’ relationship to that activity. Id. at 313.

PSC 1501842

While her son was barred by the primary assumption of the risk from suing Young, Lloyd was not. Lloyd was not riding as a passenger in the boat for thrill, nor was there any required skill or challenge as a passenger that contained a potential risk of injury. Accordingly, being a passenger in a boat towing an inner tuber is a recreational rather than sporting activity and therefore the primary assumption of the risk doctrine has no application in this case.
