La Grange Social Security Disability Attorney John E. Horn of the law firm of Horn & Kelley, P.C., won a new hearing for a client from the Social Security Appeals Council. The claimant had been denied social security disability benefits throughout the entire administrative process.

The claimant suffered from back pain, shoulder pain, morbid obesity, bipolar disorder, and a sleep impairment. Social Security’s assessment of the claimant’s residual functional capacity did not address the findings of the treating psychiatrist despite giving them substantial weight, and the residual functional capacity did not include the limitation to occasional climbing and stooping found by Social Security’s own medical consultant, who was given some weight. Social Security’s decision did not express the residual functional capacity in specific terms, failing to define the term “use.” The absence of limitations associated with obesity was inconsistent with obesity being found severe by Social Security.
