Bell Buckle Personal Injury Lawyer
With right around 500 residents (as of the 2010 consensus) living in just under one-half square mile, Bell Buckle, Tennessee is a modern day destination for antiques, quilts, handmade crafts, country music and home cooking. Bell Buckle is located in Bedford County in Middle Tennessee.
The area was named for Bell Buckle Creek which acquired its name according to the story that the first white man to come to the area discovered drawings in the shape of a cowbell and buckle on a tree near a creek and so named the creek, Bell Buckle Creek.
Bell Buckle thrived in the 1800s centered around the Nashville and Chattanooga Railroad and by 1870, the population grew to more than 1,000 residents. By 1877, Bell Buckle was incorporated into Tennessee.
During the late 1880s, William R. “Sawney” Webb, a Civil War veteran and educator from North Carolina, came to the area to build a preparatory school. The first school was located in Culleoka, Tennessee. The students were later moved to Bell Buckle. The Webb School has helped with the growth and development of the area and today is a prestigious boarding and day school with an international student body.
The great depression and the advent of the automobile hurt the town and many stores and buildings were boarded up. But in 1976, the downtown area of Bell Buckle, including the Webb School, was listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

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 regard 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.

As with most claims for benefits, there is a time limit from which you must file an appeal or lose certain rights and remedies under the law.
