National Leaders in Social Security Disability Law
Attorney John E. Horn of the law firm of Horn & Kelley, PC, just won another Social Security Disability case, this one at hearing level (without actually going to a hearing), step three of the Social Security Disability process. His client was a sixty year old Griffith disability applicant with seizures, daily tremors in hands (bilateral), depression & anxiety, sciatica, hip & knee pain, asthma, history of tendinitis in elbows. We have represented many other Griffith disability claimants successfully.
The claim of our homeless claimant was pulled for informal DDS review. The state agency doctor opined that claimant met listings 8.04 (skin cancer of the foot) as of February 14, 2017, after the alleged onset date and before the date last insured. Because DDS could not make a fully favorable decision, just a partially favorable one, the claim was sent back to OHO, which chose to sit on the claim instead of phoning to settle with an amended onset date. Our office contacted OHO (and everyone else in the chain up to the President) about settlement and prevailed, saving all concerned an unnecessary hearing.
We Can Handle Griffith Disability Claims at All Levels
Do not make the same mistake so many others have, call us before you file. We can handle your claim from the very beginning. A Griffith disability applicant would ordinarily make an appointment at our Highland, Indiana office. We apply for Griffith disability claimants by filing 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 Griffith disability applicants by filing their appeals online. Most 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 Griffith disability applicants by filing 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 who appeals to the Appeals Council, Griffith 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 claims overall, but now it is allowing only forty percent of claims. 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. Griffith disability applicants file suit against Social Security in the United States District Court in Hammond. If Griffith disability applicants do not win in the District Court, they appeal to the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit in Chicago.
Free Consultation, No Fee Unless We Win
When you apply for Social Security Disability, make sure you hire a local fighter, a lawyer who can take your case to the United States District Court or United States Court of Appeals if necessary.
