Kankakee Disability Claimant Wins New Hearing

National Leaders in Social Security Disability Law

Attorney John E. Horn of the law firm of Horn & Kelley, PC, just won another social security disability case, this one at the district court level, step five of the Social Security Disability process.  He won a new hearing for a Kankakee disability applicant denied benefits by Social Security.  The case was Ruth v. Colvin, 14 C 191, N.D..Ill., March 9, 2015.  Social Security failed to articulate whether or to what extent it credited Plaintiff’s testimony of disabling medication side effects.  Social Security’s reasons for rejecting the opinion of the treating physician were not all compelling.  Social Security failed to explain adequately how claimant’s fibromyalgia factored into the residual functional capacity determination or the rejection of the treating physician’s opinion.  We have represented many other Kankakee disability claimants successfully.

We Can Handle Kankakee Disability Claims at All Levels

We can handle your claim from the very beginning.  We apply for Kankakee disability claimants by filing online.  Applications for social security disability benefits have a seventy percent chance of being denied.  Then it is necessary to file an appeal called reconsideration.  We request reconsideration for Kankakee disability applicants by filing their appeals online.  Most claims are denied at reconsideration.  Then it is necessary to file another appeal requesting a hearing by an administrative law judge.  We request hearings for Kankakee disability applicants by filing online.  Kankakee disability claims are heard in the Orland Park hearing office.  Many claims are won at the hearing level, but if you do not win, an appeal must be filed with the Appeals Council.  Like everyone else who appeals to the Appeals Council, Kankakee disability applicants file their appeals in Falls Church, Virginia, by fax or mail.  The Appeals Council denies eight out of ten appeals.  Social Security used to allow sixty-five percent of claims overall, but now it is allowing only forty percent of claims.  We aim to win every claim without a hearing, but Social Security is just a big insurance company, and like any other insurance company, it only wants to take in premiums and not pay benefits.  That means you need a Social Security Disability Lawyer who will if necessary take your case to the United States District Court, the United States Court of Appeals, or even the United States Supreme Court.  Kankakee disability applicants file suit against Social Security in the United States District Court in Chicago.  If Kankakee disability applicants do not win in the District Court, they appeal to the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit in Chicago.

Free Consultation, No Fee Unless We Win

When you apply for social security disability, make sure you hire a fighter, a lawyer who can take your case to the United States District Court or United States Court of Appeals if necessary.  You have at least a fifty percent better chance of winning with a fighting lawyer who can take your case to the United States District Court, the United States Court of Appeals or even the United States Supreme Court.  Visit our website at johnehornattorney.com.  We are national leaders in social security disability law with more cases published in the Forum of the National Organization of Social Security Claimants’ Representatives than anyone else in the country for the last two years.  We show other lawyers how to win.  Horn & Kelley won nine of ten decisions in 2014 in the United States District Court two out of two decisions in the United States Court of Appeals in 2014.  We have represented many Kankakee disability applicants successfully.  Follow Horn & Kelley on Twitter @HornKelleyLaw.
