Carlill v The Carbolic Smoke Ball Co.Ltd [1893]

The company advertised a smoke ball, as a patent medicine and alongside this advertisement they promised that any person who was to purchase the smoke ball, whilst using it correctly would be immune from a range of illnesses one of which was influenza. The company stated alongside this that anyone who still got the flu after using it, would receive £100. The company lodged at the bank £1,000 for that exact purpose. Mrs. Carlill did get the flu after using the smoke ball in the fashion stated and sued successfully for the £100.
