Our law firm is handling CPAP sleep apnea class action lawsuit for injures from the recalled Philips CPAP machine.
In June, medical device company Philips issued a sweeping safety recall of its popular CPAP and BiPAP sleep apnea devices that millions of Americans use to sleep every night. The recalled devices contain a polyurethane sound abatement foam that can degrade and cause users to inhale foam particles that can cause respiratory damage and possibly cancer.
The Philips recall covered an estimated 3.5 million sleep apnea devices. Plaintiffs’ lawyers anticipate this will be a new product liability mass tort with eventually thousands of plaintiffs consolidated into a Multi-District-Litigation (MDL) after a September 30, 2021 MDL panel hearing.
