John E. Horn of Horn & Kelley, PC, Attorneys at Law, national leaders in social security disability law who concentrate their practice in Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana, won a fully favorable post-remand Administrative Law Judge decision June 24, 2013, because their client equaled listing 13.19 for liver cancer.
Claimant had appeared unrepresented at his first hearing and was denied October 5, 2011. He retained Horn & Kelley, who submitted new and material evidence to the Appeals Council. The medical evidence in claimant’s file indicated that in August, 2010, he had been found to have a hepatic lesion suspicious for hepatocellular carcinoma. The new and material evidence showed that on a follow-up visit on April 13, 2011, claimant was diagnosed with hepatocellular carcinoma demonstrated by CT scan. The Appeals Council reversed and remanded Nov. 27, 2012.
At the hearing on remand, a Medical Expert testified that claimant has hepatocellular carcinoma demonstrated by CT scan and high AFP protein, and that listing 13.19 was equaled July 30, 2010. The Administrative Law Judge granted the claim as of that date.
