Tinley Park Social Security Disability Attorney Wins

Written by John Horn. Posted in Cases Won, Claims Won, Law Office News, Social Security Disability

Tinley Park Social Security Disability Attorney John E. Horn of the law firm of Horn & Kelley, P.C., won a Fully Favorable decision from the Appeals Council on remand from the United States District Court.   The claimant had been denied social security disability benefits throughout the entire administrative process.

 Social Security Disability

The claimant suffered from the aftermath of a cervical fusion, the aftermath of a lumbar laminectomy, obesity, and hypertension.  The District Court remanded September 24, 2013.  The Appeals Council on July 29, 2014, found claimant disabled December 1, 2010, the alleged onset date.  The Appeals Council adopted the administrative law judge’s findings of fact but assessed claimant’s residual functional capacity as sedentary rather than light and applied Medical-Vocational Guideline Rule 201.14 to allow the claim.  Usually the Appeals Council just sends the case back to the administrative law judge for another hearing.

Chicago Social Security Disability Lawyer Wins In US District Court

Written by John Horn. Posted in Cases Won, Claims Won, Law Office News, Social Security Disability

Chicago Social Security Disability Lawyer John E. Horn of the law firm of Horn & Kelley, P.C., won in the United States District Court a new hearing for a client whose claim for social security disability benefits was denied.   The case was Kennedy v. Colvin, 13 C 5180.  The claimant was denied social security disability benefits throughout the entire administrative process.

Social Security Disability

The claimant suffered from pelvic outlet obstruction, irritable bowel syndrome, headaches, degenerative disc disease and anxiety.  The district court held that Social Security did not adequately explain the credibility determination and it was not supported by substantial evidence in the record.  The district court also said Social Security erred in giving no weight to the disabling opinion of the treating physician, a gastroenterologist, and great weight to the opinions of the State agency doctors, who had no relevant specialties.

Highland Social Security Disability Lawyer wins in US Court of Appeals

Written by John Horn. Posted in Cases Won, Claims Won, Law Office News, Social Security Disability

Highland Social Security Disability Lawyer John E. Horn of the law firm of Horn & Kelley, P.C., won in the United States Court of Appeals a new hearing for a client who claim for social security disability benefits was denied.   The case was Murphy v. Colvin, 13-3154, Seventh Cir., July 22, 2014.  The claimant was denied social security disability benefits throughout the entire administrative process and also by the United States District Court.  The district court ruled for the Commissioner in 12 C 3879.  Plaintiff appealed.  The Seventh Circuit reversed July 22, 2014.

The Seventh Circuit held that Social Security did not adequately explain her credibility determination and it was not supported by substantial evidence in the record.  Social Security drew adverse inferences from facts without having the claimant explain them (claimant’s cessation of physical therapy and a vacation she took).  Murphy v. Colvin, Slip opinion at 7-9.

The Seventh Circuit held that Social Security’s RFC determination was not supported by substantial evidence.  No medical evidence in the record contradicted the claimant’s testimony that she could not perform light work.  Murphy, Slip Opinion at 10-14.

The Seventh Circuit finally held that Social Security improperly relied on the grids to deny the claim because there were non-exertional impairments and Social Security did not include in its hypotheticals to the Vocational Expert the limitations it found in denying the claim.  Murphy, slip opinion at 14-17.

Tinley Park Social Security Disability Lawyer Wins In U.S. District Court

H. Elizabeth Kelley and John E. Horn, Tinley Park Social Security Disability Lawyers

John E. Horn of Horn & Kelley, PC, Attorneys at Law, a Tinley Park social security disability lawyer, on June 23, 2014, won in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois a new hearing for a client who suffered from diabetes, neuropathy, depression, anxiety, shortness of breath, pain, and obesity.   The case was Smith v. Colvin, 12 C 5116, N.D. Ill., June 23, 2014.  Social Security failed to consider two pieces of evidence that did not support its assessment of the claimant’s residual physical functional capacity: the opinion of the consultative mental examiner (a Global Assessment of Functioning of 45) and the results of a pulmonary function test.  Social Security’s failure to address the apparent conflict of its conclusion that claimant was not disabled with claimant’s GAF of 45 (which indicates disability) left the Court unsure Social Security had considered all the evidence.  Social Security also erred in not explaining the weight given the opinion of the consultative mental examiner.  These errors were not harmless.  Social Security unquestionably failed to consider the pulmonary function test, which was submitted after the hearing but before the decision, and still had to be considered.

The claimant was denied social security disability benefits throughout the entire administrative process.  Horn said, “It’s unfortunate that decision makers at lower levels did not understand how serious my client’s impairments are.  I’m relieved I was able to win a new hearing for my client.”  Horn is a Tinley Park social security disability lawyer who represents people on social security disability claims at every level in Chicagoland, Northwest Indiana, and nationwide.  Horn & Kelley has offices in Chicago, Tinley Park, and Lagrange, Illinois, as well as Highland, Indiana.  They have represented clients in Alabama, Arizona, California, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Tennessee, Texas, and Wisconsin.  Horn & Kelley represent claimants at all levels, from the initial application to the United States Supreme Court.
