Can I Sue a Manufacturer Representative?

Jeffrey BreitJanuary 21, 2022

Can I sue a Manufacturer Representative? Yes, you can. Unfortunately, Manufacturer’s typically have the resources and insurance coverage to fight product liability lawsuits. In addition, a lawsuit against a Representative can quickly eat up a significant portion of the defendant’s available funds. In this case, you may be able to file a product liability lawsuit against the rep directly.

First of all, the manufacturer’s sales representative is not personally liable for the medical device’s malfunction. But if the representative is negligent or fails to supervise the patient properly, a plaintiff can still sue the manufacturer. If the case can be proven, the representative could be liable for the injury. However, the court is unlikely to grant summary judgment in favor of the manufacturer in this case, and the plaintiff must prove that he was injured in the course of his work.

A manufacturing representative can be sued for negligence, particularly if the sales representative doesn’t follow the correct protocols. In this case, you’ll need to prove that the representative  failed to deliver what was promised and the patient suffered injury as a result. If you have a claim against a representative, you deserve your day in court.
