Are you eligible for compensation with an injury claim in Halifax?
Halifax is a minster town in West Yorkshire. It is notorious for the Halifax Gibbet which was an early form of decapitating machine, a type of guillotine, which was used in the town of Halifax. It was probably first used in the 16th Century as an alternative form of execution to beheading by either axe or sword. Halifax was once part of the Manor of Wakefield. This meant that it fell under the law which gave the Lord of the Manor the authority to execute by decapitation any thief caught with stolen goods to the value of 13 ½ d or more of if they simply confessed to stealing goods worth that amount. At the time, decapitation was a common means of execution in England but Halifax was the only place which employed a special machine to do it. Also, Halifax continued to execute criminals in that manner well into the 17th Century.
How an accident victim feels
Thank goodness times have changed and Halifax no longer has the Halifax Gibbet for petty theft. It is not hard to imagine that innocent people got decapitated when they were forced to make false confessions in those days. The poor victims must have wondered what they had done to deserve such treatment. This is similar to how accident victims feel when they end up being unable to work because of someone else’s negligence.
