Ardmore Attorney

Ardmore is a unique city located in two states. The city straddles the borders of Tennessee and Alabama. It is located in Giles and Lincoln counties in Tennessee and Limestone and Madison counties in Alabama. It has a population of 1,213 (as of the 2010 consensus). It consists of an estimated land area of 4.54 square miles.

Ardmore came into being in 1910 when the Louisville and Nashville railroad announced plans for a railroad line to connect Nashville to Decatur, Alabama. The construction began in 1911 and the village of Austin (Ardmore’s original name) was just a one store-house community. But by 1914, when construction was completed, Ardmore was a thriving community. The original railroad depot was constructed on the Alabama side and was simply a boxcar located where Mr. Alex Austin envisioned the town to be. The railroad named the depot Ardmore, and the name stuck for the town.

Progress continued on both the Tennessee and Alabama sides of town. Schools, banks, hardware stores and groceries soon opened in both states. In 1949, the Ardmore Cheese Company opened on the Tennessee side. The Cheese Factory is still in operation today, although it no longer manufactures cheese. It is used as a gift shop and specialty cheese store.

In addition to personal injury claims, my office also handles injuries related to work related accidents, on the job injuries and/or claims for worker compensation benefits pursuant to the Tennessee Worker Compensation Act. In recent years, Tennessee law has changed and evolved in regards to the rights of workers under the Tennessee Workers’ Compensation Act. Currently, Tennessee law requires that administrative claims and requests for assistance be filed prior to instituting a court action. Furthermore, an administrative claim must be filed with the Tennessee Department of Labor within a certain time period or the claim could be forever barred. Many of the new laws were enacted in order to protect insurance companies, large corporations and manufacturing interests within the State of Tennessee all at the peril of the injured worker. Due to the complexity of the Workers’ Compensation Laws that require the filing of an administrative claim with the Tennessee Department of Labor for either a benefit review conference or a request for assistance pursuant to the facts of each case is why you should contact an attorney who routinely handles Tennessee Workers’ Compensation claims. Therefore, please do not hesitate to contact my office if you are in need of assistance for your work related injuries.
