Hodges Trial Lawyers had another successful disability decision handed down this week. Attorney Tim McFalls helped a child get benefits for her significant Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. The Administrative Law Judge found that the child’s condition was equal to Social Security Children Listing 112.11. This listing requires that a child have ADHA manifested by developmentally inappropriate degrees of inattention, impulsiveness, and hyperactivity. The required level of severity for ADHD is met when there is medically documents findings of (1) Marked inattention; (2) Marked impulsiveness; and (3) Marked Hyperactivity. Social Security also requires that the child demonstrate impairments in two of the following four areas (1) Marked impairments in age-appropriate cognitive/communicative function, (2) Marked impairment in age-appropriate social functioning, (3) Marked impairment in age-appropriate personal functioning, (4) Marked difficulties in maintaining concentration, persistence, or pace. Through a hearing before an Administrative Law Judge and an accompanying brief outlining the symptoms displayed by his client, Tim was able to convince the Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) that his client met these requirements and was deserving of Social Security benefits. Through Tim’s efforts the client was awarded full disability benefits for her condition and will be able to use these benefits to get additional help for her condition. This was another successful victory for Hodges Trial Lawyers, P.C. and its clients.
