National Leaders in Social Security Disability Law

Social Security Disability Lawyer John E. Horn of the law firm of Horn & Kelley, P.C., just won another Social Security Disability case, this one at hearing level, step three of the Social Security Disability process. The Client was approved “on the record” which is a favorable ruling that is made by an administrative law judge prior to an actual disability hearing. Our client was a fifty-eight year old Chicago disability applicant who had a history of four back surgeries involving two fusions. He has pinched nerves in both hips. A rod in left arm and left leg, coronary heart disease, and chronic pain in both knees and legs. We have represented many other Chicago disability claimants successfully.

We Can Handle Chicago 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. We apply for Chicago 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 Chicago 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 Chicago 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, Chicago disability applicants file their appeals in Falls Church, Virginia. 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. Chicago disability applicants file suit against Social Security in the United States District Court in Chicago. If Chicago disability applicants do not win in the District Court, they appeal to the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit in Chicago, maybe even to the United States Supreme Court in Washington, D.C.
