    carlill v carbolic smoke ball company 1893


    Certainly! In the landmark case of Carlill v Carbolic Smoke Ball Company (1893), the court ruled in favor of Mrs. Carlill. The company had advertised a reward for anyone who used their product and still contracted influenza, backed by a deposit. Mrs. Carlill, having used the product and fallen ill, sued for the reward. The court held that the advertisement constituted a legally binding unilateral contract, as it included specific terms and was communicated to the public. This case established the principle that unilateral contracts can be formed through advertisements and upheld the importance of clear offer and acceptance in contract law.
