Horn & Kelley Win New Social Security Disability Hearing in Federal Court for Client with Neck and Shoulder Problems, as well as Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

John E. Horn of the law firm of Horn & Kelley, P.C., won a remand in Federal District Court for a new Social Security disability hearing in the case of a claimant with a torn rotator cuff in his shoulder, carpal tunnel syndrome in his hands, and degenerative disc disease in his neck. The claimant was denied benefits throughout the entire Social Security administrative process. Now he will get a new hearing where the evidence in favor of the claim has to be considered. Horn said, “The Social Security Administration acted as if it did not have to consider the evidence that favored allowance of the claim. It did not evaluate the severity of my client’s carpal tunnel syndrome. It misread the physical therapy records about his shoulder. I am proud to help people get a fair shake from the Social Security Administration.” Horn is an attorney who represents individuals at every stage of their Social Security disability claims. “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,” says Horn, who has helped thousands of workers get Social Security disability benefits. “No one should apply for Social Security disability without a lawyer.” For additional information, call John E.
