In June 2021, Philips Respironics voluntarily recalled several of its CPAP machines, BiPAP machines, and ventilators. These machines have been linked to severe health issues due to the breakdown of a polyester-based polyurethane foam found in the product. The toxic foam makes its way into the breathing tube attached to the face mask when broken down. CPAP users could now be facing health conditions such as cancer, respiratory infections, asthma, lung damage, and more.
Following the voluntary recall by Philips in June 2021, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) classified the Philips CPAP recall as a Class I recall. This indicates that the recalled products are hazardous and could cause severe injury or death. Our Miami Philips CPAP lawsuit lawyers from Chalik & Chalik Injury Lawyers can help you seek compensation and handle every step of your case.

Am I Eligible for Compensation in a CPAP Case?
According to the FDA, use of a defective CPAP machine could leave you at risk of cancer, respiratory conditions, and many other health problems. If the Philips CPAP recall has impacted you or a family member, you may be eligible for compensation. There are four types of compensation that you can receive depending on your circumstances.
- Medical bills: You may receive money to pay for past bills associated with your illness or future medical care.
- Lost income: You may not be able to work due to your injury, so you may be eligible to receive some or all of the lost income you would have earned had you been healthy.
- Pain & suffering: You could be in serious pain, and you deserve compensation for that hardship.
Our team can look at your medical records and speak with your doctors to learn more about how the defective CPAP machine affected you. We can use this as evidence to prove your damages in a CPAP lawsuit.

What does It Cost to Hire a Lawyer in Miami?
We work based on contingency fees, which means that you only pay your attorney an agreed-upon percentage of your final award if you win your case. However, you will not owe your attorney anything if you lose your case.
At Chalik & Chalik Injury Lawyers, we believe that you should focus on your health and not on paying your attorney. You don’t need to pay any upfront fees to get started.
Is There a Deadline to File My Lawsuit?
Florida law requires that you file your lawsuit within four years from your discovery of injuries, according to Florida Statute 95.11(3)(a). It is important to take legal action before the statute of limitations expires. If you do not sue within the statute of limitations, you may lose your right to hold Philips Respironics responsible.
A Miami Philips CPAP lawsuit lawyer with Chalik & Chalik Injury Lawyers will tell you how long you have to file suit and ensure your case is on track.
