Patients are filing lawsuits after Philips Respironics recalled its CPAP, BiPAP, and mechanical ventilators in June 2021. Studies and patient injuries link the medical devices to potential health risks due to the machines’ foam component. Injured patients may suffer from prolonged coughing and wheezing, damage to the lungs and other organs, and cancer. If you or anyone you know experienced injuries such as Cancer, Pulmonary Issues, or Kidney failure, after using Philips Cpap, BiPAP or Ventilator devices, contact our CPAP/BiPAP/Ventilator lawyers today to determine if you’re eligible to receive compensation for your medical bills, lost income, cancer treatments, pain and suffering, and other out-of-pocket expenses to aid in your recovery.
Although still in the early stages, injured patients have started a class action lawsuit against Philips seeking compensation for the injuries that they have incurred due to the breakdown of the sound abatement foam in the machines which creates a gas which leads to exposure to toxic chemicals directly in the patients’ airways. Courts expect thousands of filings of Philips CPAP lawsuits with complaints alleging that Philips knew about the problem for years and failed to inform device owners or recall its defective or dangerous products, voluntarily putting patients at risk of injury.
