Extensive Overview on Philips CPAP Lawsuit In 2024

You can file a Philips CPAP Lawsuit if you’re suffering from cancer, lung problems, or other injuries after using a recalled Philips machine. Philips recalled a wide range of its CPAP, ventilators, and BiPAP machines because of the potential carcinogen and toxic chemical exposure.

On September 1, 2021, the CPAP device maker announced that he will repair or replace recalled devices, but it will take a year to finish the procedure.

However, on November 12, 2021, an FDA CPAP recalled update found the new foam placed in replacement machines also poses a safety risk. Nevertheless, the agency’s inspection report also revealed that Philips knew as far back as 2015 that PE-PUR foam in its breathing machines could degrade.

The CPAP victims are suing Philips on product liability and negligence-based grounds, such as:

  • Consumer fraud.
  • Deceptive trade practices.
  • Defective designs.
  • Failure to warn/lack of disclaimers.
  • Manufacturing defect.

How serious is the CPAP recall ?

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) classifies the Philips CPAP recall as Class 1 as it can cause various serious injuries, including death. It was built to improve people’s breathing instead of contaminating their airways.
