We Can Handle Oak Forest Disability Claims at All Levels.

 

We can handle your claim from the very beginning. We apply for Oak Forest disability claimants 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 Oak Forest disability applicants by filing online. Eighty-five percent of 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 Oak Forest disability applicants online. 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, Oak Forest 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 all claims, but now it is allowing only forty percent. 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. Oak Forest disability applicants file suit against Social Security in the United States District Court in Chicago. If Oak Forest disability applicants do not win in the District Court, they appeal to the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit in Chicago.

Horn & Kelley, P.C., Attorneys at Law, national leaders in social security disability and benefits law, won a district court remand Oct. 10, 2013, for a claimant with depression, foot problems, diabetes, fatigue, and insomnia, in Echols v. Colvin, 12 C 9797.  The Administrative Law Judge (“ALJ”) ignored the opinion of the treating physician that claimant was disabled, submitted by fax after the hearing but before the decision.  The District Court rejected as meaningless the Commissioner’s argument that the ALJ did not have to consider the opinion because he omitted it from the list of exhibits, and the District Court rejected as impossible the Commissioner’s argument that claimant mistakenly submitted the opinion by fax to a number that was in fact not a fax number.  The matter was remanded because of the ALJ’s failure to consider relevant evidence in the record.  Call Horn & Kelley at 888-921-5297 for a free evaluation of your claim.  Horn & Kelley represent individuals at all levels of their social security disability claims.

Horn & Kelley win another Social Security Disability Appeals Council remand!

Written by John Horn. Posted in Blogs

Horn & Kelley, Attorneys at Law, national leaders in Social Security Disability law, won another Appeals Council remand September 9, 2013.  The Administrative Law Judge who denied the claim made a mistake about claimant’s height which had significant implications in the assessment of the effects of claimant’s obesity.  The Administrative Law Judge also failed to evaluate the opinion of the consultative examining physician that claimant has some difficulty in prolonged sitting as well as standing, walking, lifting, and carrying due to chronic back pain and obesity.   The claim was remanded for a new hearing.

Horn & Kelley win another Appeals Council remand for an Illinois client.

Written by John Horn. Posted in Blogs

Horn & Kelley, national leaders in Social Security Disability law, won another remand for an Illinois client Aug. 29, 2013, because the Administrative Law Judge improperly denied their client’s request for a supplemental hearing.  Post-hearing medical interrogatories from a medical expert were proffered to claimant; Horn & Kelley objected to the medical expert’s opinions and requested a supplemental hearing; the unfavorable hearing decision by the ALJ implicitly denied Horn & Kelley’s request for a supplemental hearing; HALLEX I-2-7-30 (H) provides that in these circumstances if a claimant requests a supplemental hearing, the ALJ must grant the request; therefore the denial of Horn & Kelley’s request for a supplemental hearing was an error or law.

Another US District Court win for Horn & Kelley, Koppers v. Colvin, 12 C 3993

Written by John Horn. Posted in Blogs

Horn & Kelley, national leaders in Social Security Disability law, won another United States District Court case Aug. 28, 2013, in Koppers v. Colvin, 12 C 3993.  The case was reversed and remanded to the Social Security Administration for another hearing.  The Administrative Law Judge’s improper rejection of several pieces of evidence favorable to Plaintiff based on the Administrative Law Judge’s illogical or erroneous statements, and the failure to address other favorable evidence, fatally undermined the Administrative Law Judge’s credibility analysis in her decision against Plaintiff.  The Administrative Law Judge erroneously failed to explain adequately her reasoning for nor giving controlling or great weight to the opinion of Plaintiff’s treating physician.  In determining Plaintiff’s residual functional capacity, the Administrative Law Judge improperly played doctor by using her own lay opinions to fill evidentiary gaps in the record.

Horn & Kelley win another Appeals Council remand

Written by John Horn. Posted in Blogs

Horn & Kelley, national leaders in social security disability law, won an Appeals Council remand Aug. 13, 2013.  Claimant’s alleged past relevant work was done as part of a composite job.  A claimant can be found capable of performing a composite job as actually performed only when she can perform all parts of the job.  The vocational expert testified the claimant’s residual functional capacity would allow for performance of one part of the job, but not the other.  Because the composite job does not have a counterpart in the dictionary of Occupational Titles, it is not to be evaluated when considering the claimant’s ability to do the job as generally performed in the national economy.  Claimant may not have past relevant work as defined by SSR 82-62.  Call Horn & Kelley at 877-614-8861 or 888-921-5297.
