Blue Island Disability Client Wins New Hearing

National Leaders in Social Security Disability Law

Attorney John E. Horn of the law firm of Horn & Kelley, PC, just won in the U.S. District Court another hearing for a Blue Island disability claimant. The case was Schneider v. Colvin, 12 C 9084, Northern District of Illinois, February 20, 2015. Social Security’s decision was not supported by substantial evidence because Social Security erred by not considering whether the Medical Expert’s testimony (at claimant’s second hearing) could support a finding that our client’s overall concentration was limited by an amount that would lead to an allowance of the claim. Although the Medical Expert initially testified about the effect of causalgia on our client’s arms, the Medical Expert also specifically referred to a lack of concentration from the severity of Plaintiff’s pain. The matter is remanded for a determination of the effect of our client’s pain on her concentration, persistence and pace, rather than only on the functional limitations it may cause. .

We Can Handle Blue Island Disability Claims at All Levels

We can handle your claim from the very beginning. We apply for Blue Island 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 Blue Island 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 Blue Island disability applicants by filing online. Blue Island 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, Blue Island disability applicants file their appeals in Falls Church, Virginia. 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. Blue Island disability applicants file suit against Social Security in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois in Chicago. If Blue Island disability applicants do not win in the District Court, they appeal to the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit in Chicago.
