Top things to know about Philips CPAP lawsuits

CPAP therapy, for the unversed, is used for the treatment of sleep apnea. Philips had the biggest share of 60% in the market, with millions of devices sold. The Philips CPAP lawsuits allege that these devices can cause respiratory conditions, lung diseases, and even cancer.  In June 2020, Philips recalled three devices – CPAP, Bi-Level PAP, and mechanical ventilator devices. The lawsuits state that these devices cause the user to inhale/ingest toxic foam, which can pose serious health risks. If you believe that you have a valid Philips CPAP lawsuit, below are some facts worth knowing. 

The fault/issue with Philips CPAP devices

Philips CPAP devices contain PE-PUR foam, which can degrade into smaller particles. These particles eventually can end up in the air pathway of the device, forcing the user to ingest/inhale these particles. PE-PUR foam may also produce other chemicals. Breathing these chemicals and carcinogens can increase the risk of cancer, lung issues, and respiratory diseases. There are also other reported issues after using Philips CPAP devices. 

Do you have a valid lawsuit?

If you used one of the Philips CPAP devices (now recalled) and have been diagnosed with cancer, lung diseases, or respiratory ailments, you may have a valid lawsuit. There are law firms that are handling such lawsuits, and their personal injury attorneys can offer a free initial evaluation for your case. 

What do Philips CPAP lawsuits allege?

Philips CPAP lawsuits allege that the company failed to warn the public about the possible risks and side effects of using these devices, besides defective design. These lawsuits also claim consumer fraud and gross negligence. Lawyers are seeking huge compensation from Philips CPAP lawsuits, which will cover for medical bills, pain, suffering, lost wages, lost future income, and punitive damages. 

Current status 

There has been no settlement in Philips CPAP lawsuits yet. The cases are in an early stage, and the COVID-19 pandemic has only delayed things further. All law firms are accepting separate Philips CPAP lawsuits, which means that these are not a part of class action. These cases, however, will most likely join a multidistrict litigation, or MDL, which will expedite the process. The judge, in such cases, will hear a few bellwether cases. 

Meet an attorney

If you believe that you have a Philips CPAP lawsuit, consider talking to an attorney. There is limited time, as per applicable statutes, to file such lawsuits, after being diagnosed with cancer and other conditions.
