Whiplash Injury in Shipley


Shipley is a town in west Yorkshire, in the Metropolitan Borough of Bradford. The name Shipley comes from the Old English word scīp, meaning ‘sheep’ and the suffix lēah which means lea, meadow or pasture, so clearly sheep were kept in the area in the past. There is some archaeological evidence to show that people inhabited the area in the Bronze Age and it is mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086 as Scipelei and Scipeleia. It was the growth of the textile industry during the Industrial Revolution that most contributed to Shipley’s growth as wool, of course was easy to come by as sheep-farming was the mainstay of the economy prior to the growth of industries. There had been a cottage industry, with people having looms in the homes and making cloth for many years, but the advent of machines made it easier to make cloth quickly and so the cottage industry declined, giving way to the mills. In the days of the Industrial Revolution working conditions were grim and if a worker suffered a whiplash injury in Shipley while working, there would have been no personal injury compensation claims to make.
