Manufacturers of defective products are responsible for the harm they cause their consumers. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently recalled several Philips products, including its CPAP, due to health risks.
If you are suffering injuries or medical complications after using Philips CPAP, we can fight for fair compensation. Our Sarasota Philips CPAP lawsuit lawyers can investigate your case and calculate your damages. We may secure a settlement or verdict that can help with your recovery.
Potential Forms of Compensation
You may be able to recover the following damages if you suffered injuries due to a Philips CPAP.
Depending on your injuries, you may require surgery, rehabilitation, and medication. If you suffered organ damage, you may even need a transplant. Medical expenses can easily overwhelm a family, but you can seek recovery for them.
You can also go after awards for your future medical care if you suffer an ongoing condition or permanent impairment.
Lost Wages and Reduced Earning Capacity
Your injuries can keep you out of work for a while. You can seek your lost wages, including bonuses, benefits, paid vacation time, and sick leave.
If you cannot return to work or must find new employment that pays less than your pre-injury income, you can also seek reduced earning capacity. This can cover the difference between what you were earning before your injury and what you can earn now.
Pain and Suffering
Your physical pain and emotional turmoil from your injuries warrant compensation, as well. We can apply a couple of different methods to assign a dollar value to your pain and suffering.
Loss of Quality of Life
If your injuries cause permanent impairment, you may not be able to enjoy the same activities you once did. You could also struggle with daily tasks.
You can seek awards for your lost quality of life.
Wrongful Death Damages
If you lost a loved one to their injuries, a settlement or verdict for wrongful death may cover:
- Their medical bills
- Their pain and suffering
- Funeral and burial costs
- The income they would have continued to contribute to the household
- The companionship they offered
- Lost wages if you took time off work to help them recover
We can handle your wrongful death lawsuit while you grieve in peace with your family.
