Philips Respironics has issued a recall for their CPAP, BiPAP, and ventilators manufactured between 2009 to April 26, 2021. Efforts from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to reach out to the owners of the CPAP machines began in June 2021 due to multiple health risks linked to their use.
The attorneys at Chalik & Chalik Personal Injury Lawyers can help you file a CPAP lawsuit. Navigating the legal system may seem daunting, but with a team like Chalik & Chalik on your side, you can file your lawsuit in no time.
Parties Eligible for Filing CPAP Lawsuits for Their Losses
To qualify for filing a lawsuit the user must have developed health-related illnesses due to the faulty Philips CPAP machine. The Philips CPAP machines use foam made from polyester-based polyurethane (PE-PUR). The foam reduces the machine’s vibration and sound.
As the PE-PUR breaks down, the foam can get into the device’s air pathway, potentially causing users to inhale or swallow the damaging material. In many cases, the breakdown and ingestion of the PE-PUR can cause illnesses.
Users Could Have Faced Negative Effects from Using Philips CPAPs and Ventilators
If you or someone you know has been using a Philips Respironics CPAP machine to sleep, you could receive compensation. Polyester-based polyurethane (PE-PUR) foam can cause many side effects to the user. Side effects include:
- Nausea and vomiting
- Irritation to skin, eyes, and respiratory system
- Toxic effects to organs
If you or your loved one developed symptoms or diseases while using a Philips CPAP machine, you might be entitled to compensation. The compensation amount depends on how solid your case is and the level of pain and suffering. Clients with cases against Philips for their defective CPAP machines have already succeeded.

How Much Would Working with Chalik & Chalik Injury Lawyers Cost?
In general, lawyers are expensive to hire, paid by the hour, and the price varies according to the law firm you hire. At Chalik & Chalik Injury Lawyers, we work on a contingency-fee basis. On this basis, your lawyer only receives payment if they win your case. If they lose, you don’t need to pay for the services.
You and your lawyer will agree beforehand on how much you pay them after winning your case. The fee is typically a percentage of the total compensation the client wins. Working on a contingency-fee basis ensures our clients that we work hard on their behalf.
We want to see you receive the compensation you deserve so you can get on your path to recovery. You have enough to worry about; paying your attorney should not be one of them.
