HUNTINGTON – A woman is suing Triad Tech, Inc., after she claims it failed to submit her certification exam and caused her damages.
Greg Falvo, who is doing business as Triad Tech, was also named as a defendant in the suit.
Lindsey Jeffrey paid tuition to the defendants to receive training in phlebotomy, according to a complaint filed Dec. 21 in Cabell Circuit Court.
Jeffrey claims the defendants negligently failed to submit her completed ASPT examination, which caused her to not be certified or employed as a phlebotomist.
The defendants caused Jeffrey to suffer damages, including loss of tuition, loss of wages, diminished earning capacity, loss of benefits, loss of time, humiliation, embarrassment, mental anguish, stress, damage to her reputation and diminished capacity to enjoy life, according to the suit.
Jeffrey claims the defendants deliberately, willfully and wantonly withheld her exam and did not submit it to the ASPT and maliciously deprived her of certification and subsequent employment as a certified phlebotomist.
The defendants also engaged in repeated, intentional and deliberate misrepresentations in order to conceal the fraudulent scheme, according to the suit.
Jeffrey is seeking compensatory and punitive damages with pre-judgment interest. She is being represented by Joseph M. Farrell Jr.
The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge F. Jane Hustead.
