National Leaders in Social Security Disability Law
Attorney H. Elizabeth Kelley of the law firm of Horn & Kelley, PC, just won another social security disability case, this one at the hearing level, step three of the Social Security Disability process. She won the claim of a fifty-four year old Kankakee disability applicant who suffered from degenerative disc disease of the lumbar spine, obesity, degenerative joint disease of the knee, and status post total knee replacement.
We Can Handle Kankakee Disability Claims at All Levels.
We can handle your claim from the very beginning. We apply for Kankakee disability claimants 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 Kankakee disability applicants by filing online. Eighty-five percent of 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 Kankakee disability applicants 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, Kankakee 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 all claims, but now it is allowing only forty percent. 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. Kankakee disability applicants file suit against Social Security in the United States District Court in Chicago. If Kankakee disability applicants do not win in the District Court, they appeal to the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit in Chicago.
