41 year old with brain damage from car accident wins 5 year fight for SSDI!

The administrative law judge initially found this poor claimant disabled after a car accident and granted her past due benefits for two years. She then decided the claimant had recovered from her head injuries and denied the claim. This is called a closed period of benefits. The claimant was rendered homeless and she was eventually referred to my office by legal aide. We took on the fight and appealed her decision. The Appeals Counsel agreed with our arguments and remanded the case back to the same judge. We had a neuropsychological evaluation performed to see if her head injuries had improved. The results proved her cognitive dysfunction still prevented her from working. We then subpoenaed the psychiatrist to appear live at the hearing --something that is very rarely done, but this judge would have ruled against the claimant again had we not done so. The judge attacked the psychiatrist but ultimately was left with no alternative but to grant the benefits. The judge had no idea we were bringing a live expert to testify and she wasn't prepared for it. The claimant will no longer be homeless and she will now get the medical care she needs. We are extremely proud of this result.
