Philips CPAP Lawsuits Information for Louisiana

National Law Firm for Philips BiPAP Recall Lawsuits in Louisiana

If you or a loved one has developed cancer in Louisiana as a result of using a Philips BiPAP breathing machine or ventilator, you may have grounds to file a Louisiana Philips CPAP lawsuit against the Netherlands-based manufacturer, Royal Philips. Philips BiPAP cancer lawsuits give Louisiana individuals and families harmed by CPAP cancer the ability to seek compensation for any medical expenses, pain and suffering that have resulted from using this dangerous medical device in Louisiana.

Louisiana BiPAP and CPAP Recall Lawsuits

The Philips BiPAP and CPAP recall was prompted by reports from patients who have been harmed by using the breathing machines. These particular machines make use of a foam product known as PE-PUR (or polyester-based polyurethane) in order to dampen the machine's noise. This foam product has been found to break down over time and through exposure to heat and humidity. When the foam breaks down, it can release toxic particles and gases which cause respiratory problems and cancer in residents of Louisiana using the machines.

Critics say Philips executives were aware of the risk for cancer from BiPAP machines and ventilators it sells prior to issuing the CPAP cancer recall. No one knows exactly how long the company has been aware of this danger, or how many people in Louisiana may have been harmed as a result of corporate negligence. Approximately 3-4 million Philips breathing machines, including Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP), Bilateral Positive Airway Pressure (BiPAP) machines, and life-supporting mechanical ventilators, are included in this global recall. All users in Louisiana not reliant on the machine for life support were told to halt use of the device immediately. For patients dependent on mechanical ventilators for life support in Louisiana, providers are instructed to find an alternative breathing machine when possible.

Philips is a major global manufacturer of CPAP and BiPAP breathing machines. Based in the Netherlands and helmed by CEO Frans Van Houten, Philips garnered annual revenue of more than $23 billion in 2020. Van Houten himself reaped over $7 million in cash and other compensation that year. Critics say there is no excuse for a company of this magnitude and such substantial resources to make an oversight that results in exposing 3-4 million patients to cancer, and local residents in Louisiana agree.

CPAP Cancer Recall Lawsuits from Louisiana Are Not Class Action Lawsuits

Louisiana Philips BiPAP Recall Lawsuits

Many persons in Louisiana who developed cancer from using a BiPAP or CPAP machine wonder if filing a Philips CPAP recall lawsuit in Louisiana will result in meaningful compensation for their family. Louisiana Philips CPAP lawsuits will not be class action lawsuits in which those who file a claim can expect only a small, symbolic settlement. On the contrary, lawyers handling BiPAP recall lawsuits believe Louisiana persons and family members of Louisiana persons who have suffered from cancer or another serious side effect from using a Philips CPAP machine, bilateral PAP machine, or Philips mechanical ventilator in Louisiana may be entitled to significant compensation.
