Our law firm is handling CPAP sleep apnea class action lawsuits for injuries from the recalled Philips CPAP machine.

The Philips recall covered an estimated 3.5 million sleep apnea devices. There is now a CPAP class action lawsuit with eventually thousands of plaintiffs consolidated into a Multi-District-Litigation (MDL) after a September 30, 2021, MDL panel hearing.  So every CPAP lawsuit in federal court is consolidated in federal court in Pennsylvania.

In this post, we will take a closer look at the recall, the MDL class action, the side effects of these CPAP machines, and what CPAP lawsuit settlement amounts might look like.

The CPAP recall lawsuits against Philips have spawned a new group of related satellite lawsuits against SoClean, Inc. SoClean is a company that makes a product that is specifically used to sanitize the recalled CPAP devices.

So far around a dozen lawsuits have been filed against SoClean alleging that that company falsely marketed that their product was “safe” and “healthy” to use for sanitizing CPAP machines and other breathing devices.

According to the lawsuits, SoClean’s product was not safe because it omits harmful levels of ozone gas which exceeded the maximum safe limits set by the FDA.

In June of last year, millions of Philips CPAP and BiPAP sleeping machines were recalled after the company acknowledged that sound abatement foam in the devices was breaking down and causing users to inhale toxic chemicals.

The sweeping recall immediately prompted a wave of CPAP lawsuits. The early plaintiffs in these cases claimed that the recalled devices caused a variety of different health problems including asthma, throat tumors, and general respiratory irritation.

Earlier this year, millions of Philips CPAP and BiPAP devices were recalled after it was discovered that foam used in the devices was degrading and causing users to inhale harmful chemicals. This has prompted a wave of CPAP recall lawsuits against Philips, but most of earlier complaints have only alleged consumer fraud claims.

Earlier this month in New York, one of the first CPAP recall lawsuits was filed in which the plaintiff is alleging that inhaling the foam caused physical injuries.

In this post will we carefully review and deconstruct the specific allegations in this complaint.
