Social Security: Federal District Court Victory for Client injured in automobile collision

Etheridge v. Astrue, 4:11-cv-93 The firm appealed the denial of benefits by the Social Security Administration to Federal District Court. The Plaintiff suffered severe physical injuries and psychological trauma after a motorcycle accident. Social Security found that the Plaintiff could do light work and denied disability benefits. Federal District court found that substantial evidence supported that the Plaintiff continued to suffer severe physical and psychological problems as a result of the accident. The court recognized that the Plaintiff continued to suffer chronic pain that required powerful prescription medication to control the pain. Plaintiff also continues to experience anxiety and depression. The Plaintiff's treating doctor also found that the Plaintiff could not return to work as a result of physical and psychological problems stemming form the motorcycle accident. Based on the records as a whole, the court found that substantial evidence supported the Plaintiff's claim for disability. The denial of benefits was overturned. The court ordered Social Security to award benefits. To learn more about our firm please visit our web page O'Malley Tunstall
