Millions of sleep apnea patients worldwide, especially in the United States are scrambling for an alternative to maintaining a restful night. This development comes after Philips, a major manufacturer of CPAP, BiPAP, and ventilator machines ordered the safety recall of millions of its products in June 2021.
The safety recall has created a serious problem in many areas; consumers are stranded and require trusted machines to protect their nightly slumber; affected users are researching their legal options as they file product liability lawsuits in droves; and Philips who has been ordered to commence the repair of its affected machines.
The Origin of Philips CPAP Recall Lawsuits
In June 2021, Philips ordered a recall of millions of units of its CPAP, BiPAP, and ventilator machines. The recall was due to potential health risks caused by the PE-PUR sound abatement foam contained in the devices. According to available information, the PE-PUR foams could disintegrate into particles that can be inhaled by product users. The foam particles entering into the lungs exposed users to the risk of health injuries like lung cancer, respiratory tract inflammation, kidney damage, liver damage, etc.
Philips has been accused of being aware of the health risks of the devices but failed to order a recall until the newer versions of its CPAP, BiPAP, and ventilators were released into the market. Hundreds of victims have now begun filing lawsuits against the company for health damages resulting from the use of the devices.
Am I Eligible for the Philips CPAP Recall Lawsuit?
To determine eligibility for the Philips CPAP Recall lawsuit, you should have been using the device between July 2019 and April 2021. You would also have suffered health complications and injuries like cancer, organ damage, inflammation of the respiratory tract, etc. Kindly note that the health concerns will need to be directly traced to the Philips devices.
