Philips CPAP & BiPAP Recall Lawsuit

We’re representing victims harmed by recalled sleep apnea devices

Our defective product attorneys are actively reviewing cases for people who were harmed after using Philips DreamStation, CPAP, BiPAP, and mechanical ventilator machines that were recalled in 2021 due to serious health risks. If you were diagnosed with cancer, suffered a heart attack, sustained organ damage, or were otherwise harmed after using a defective CPAP device from Philips Respironics, you may be entitled to compensation. Contact us today for a free case review to see if you’re eligible to file a lawsuit.

The Philips CPAP recall was issued on June 30, 2021. The polyester-based polyurethane foam (PE-PUR) that’s used to reduce sound and vibration from the device while it’s in use can deteriorate and enter the air pathway. This causes the user to inhale or swallow certain hazardous chemicals or toxic black particles from the foam, potentially resulting in serious and sometimes life-threatening medical conditions.
