Terms in this set (20)
Carbolic Smoke Ball advertised that any person taking their smoke ball as directed and catching flu could claim £100 from them. Mrs Carlill took the ball as directed and still caught flu. She claimed her £100 and Carbolic Smoke refused.
Held: She could sue and claimed £100. It was an offer to the whole world that she had accepted. Her compliance with the terms had turned it from an offer to the whole world to contract with her personally.
A captain of a ship decided to step down during a trip and went back to working as a normal member of the crew. Upon returning, he tried to claim wages from the owner of the ship, but the ship owner was unaware of Taylor's decision to quit his job as captain and he had not received an offer from Taylor to work in alternative capacity. Held: His claim failed because Laird did not have an offer from the commander to do a different job, so there was not a binding contract.
