Can you sue Philips for CPAP damages?

You could be eligible for compensation if you file a Philips CPAP lawsuit. Those who developed cancer after using a Philips Bi-Level Positive Airway Pressure (Bi-Level PAP), Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP), or mechanical ventilator may be eligible for compensation. You can look up their device serial number and file a claim if your equipment is affected by the recall according to Philips Respironics’ online registration process. Any impacted device should be registered online at their website.

It is recommended that you speak with your health care practitioner to determine the best treatment option for your situation. Also, make an appointment with your doctor as soon as feasible. Your medical professional can assist you in deciding whether to continue or stop therapy. You may be prescribed a new PAP gadget by your doctor.

Current status of the Philips CPAP lawsuits

The Philips CPAP claims are still in the early stages, and no settlements or jury verdicts have yet been reached. Lawyers anticipate a huge number of lawsuits as a result of the recall of millions of CPAP, BiPAP, and ventilator devices. If an MDL is created, the court will eventually allow a few cases to go to a jury trial, which are known as bellwether trials. The outcome of these cases will set the tone for negotiations on the remaining cases in the MDL. In general, the larger the jury verdict, the larger the compensation.

The United States Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation (JPML) will hear arguments on Sept. 30, 2021, in the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, to consolidate 32 Philips CPAP claims into a multidistrict litigation (MDL).
