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

BiPAP Cancer Recall Lawsuits Are Not Class Action Lawsuits
Many persons who developed cancer from using a CPAP machine wonder if filing a Philips BiPAP recall lawsuit will result in meaningful compensation for their family. 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 CPAP recall lawsuits believe persons and family members of persons who have suffered from cancer or another serious side effect from using a Philips CPAP machine, BiPAP machine, or Philips mechanical ventilator may be entitled to significant compensation. CPAP cancer lawsuits are likely to be consolidated as Multi-District Litigation (MDL), in which each claim will be handled on its own merit and compensation will be determined based on the degree of suffering of each plaintiff.
