JD 1992 :


Hello, and thank you for contacting Just Answer. I am an expert here and I look forward to assisting you today.


JD 1992 :

Are you permanently disabled?

Customer: Don't know. I had hip fracture and total hip replacement in March 2010. Since then I have been dealing with severe pain. I asked my doctor if he
Customer: Would release me to get back to school. She hesitated. So I don't know.
JD 1992 :

The only way for you to be able to discharge student loans completely is if you are permanently disabled. You can't even discharge them in bankruptcy.

JD 1992 :

The lender will have an application than you can complete and will usually require medical certification.

Customer: Yes I know that, I am not able to work now because of so much pain. How does that apply y
Customer: to me?
JD 1992 :

You asked how can you get a discharge, that is how you can get student loans discharged. It is the only way. If your doctor will state that it is a permanent disability then it is possible to get them discharged. Otherwise all you can do is get a forbearance until you either recover or you know that it is permanently disabling.

Customer: K, can I dispute with school for wrongfully verifying my eligibility even though they knew about my injury?
JD 1992 :

Can you explain how that happened?

Customer: They were advising me to apply for disability ang
Customer: And go home to enjoy my children.
JD 1992 :

How did they wrongfully certify your eligibility? Did they do it when you were not in school?

Customer: No they did it while I was at school.
JD 1992 :

I don't understand how it was a wrongful certification, can you explain?

JD 1992 :

How were you not eligible?

Customer: They knew about the prognosis of my injury. This was a doctorate of physical therapy program. They kept saying I should apply for disability. I did not think my injury would make me so disabled.
JD 1992 :

How did them certifying you as eligible harm you? Did they get paid despite the fact that they knew you couldn't complete school?

Customer: Yes.
JD 1992 :

You should be able to sue them for that then. It is a form of fraud and you could seek to recover whatever damages they cost you. It could also be a breach of contract although that's not quite as clear.

Customer: What is your speculation and what is the statute of limitation. I had my writ of mandate on April 3 rd 2013.
JD 1992 :

What state?

Customer: California
JD 1992 :

In Ca the statute of limitations on breach of contract is 4 years on fraud it is 3 years.

Customer: So I was dismissed on Aug 2011. When would b the date ?
JD 1992 :

either 2014 or 2015 and the month and date they committed the act. I don't think you'd look at when you were dismissed for it though, if you are looking at them falsely certifying you then it would be either 3 or 4 years from the date they did that.

JD 1992 :

Anything else I can assist with before I exit and help others?

Customer: K, thank you so much
JD 1992 :

Best wishes to you and I hope everything works out well.

JD 1992 :

Please ask any follow up questions in this thread. When all of your questions have been answered, then I would ask that you give a Positive Rating (of course I'd suggest Excellent) since that is the only way I get credit for my work and also please consider clicking "BONUS" as a nice way of saying "thanks" for a job well done, although this is neither required nor expected. When looking at the answer I ask you to bear in mind I can’t control what the law is and whether it helps you, I can only tell you what it says, and I assume you want truthful information.


 


However, please do not issue a rating of any kind until all of your questions have been answered and please use the Reply button to ask additional questions or to provide answers to my questions.

Customer: Should I consult a lawyer in California? I live in Texas.
JD 1992 :

You would want to use a lawyer wherever you were going to school. That's where you would have to sue them.

Customer: K thank you.
