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.
Chicago Social Security Disability Lawyer 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 an attorney who represents people on disability claims at every level in Chicagoland, Northwest Indiana, and nationwide.
