Our law firm is handling CPAP sleep apnea class action lawsuits for injuries 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. There is now 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. So all CPAP lawsuits in federal court are consolidated in federal court in Pennsylvania.
