Truck Driving School Facing Lawsuit
A Michigan truck driving school is facing a lawsuit by several students, charging that fraud was committed pertaining to the CDL training.
Former students claim that Nu-Way Truck Driver Training Centers in Livonia, Michigan is “preying on the unemployed desperate for work and leaving them in deeper debt with sub-par skills.”
Former student, Greg Adkins states that the school convinced him to enroll claiming that there would be no cost to him, by letting the trucking company pick up all the expenses. Total cost was $6,000 and Adkins landed a job after completion of the CDL course, which paid less than $10.00 per hour. He later lost this job due to the driving skills being inadequate.
Ambrose Law Group is representing several former students in the upcoming lawsuit, claiming: “These are vulnerable people. These are people who are on the verge of losing their homes. These are people who have been laid off from work and there’s a lot of laid off workers here in Michigan.”
According to the Law Group, Nu-Way is in violation of the Michigan Consumer Protection Act and that they engage in false advertising and fraud.
Nu-Way has not yet been served with the suit and has stated that if they are, they are certain they will show that no violations have been committed.
