Attorneys Helping Victims Recover Compensation for Injuries Caused by Defective CPAP and BiPAP Devices

CPAP and BiPAP machines are often prescribed by medical professionals for patients who suffer from sleep apnea, and when used properly, these devices can help prevent serious health issues and improve a person's quality of life. Unfortunately, millions of patients who use CPAP or BiPAP devices may have been exposed to toxic substances. The foam used in some CPAP and BiPAP machines manufactured by Philips Respironics can break down, and when patients inhale or swallow foam particles or chemicals found in the foam, this can lead to a variety of serious health conditions. Patients who have been injured may be able to recover financial compensation from the manufacturer of these devices.

Our attorneys work with injury victims to help them determine their options for receiving compensation. We work with our clients to fully document the injuries they have suffered, the health issues they have experienced, and other ways they and their family members have been affected by their use of a defective device. By fully detailing the damages a victim has suffered, we will be able to ensure that they will receive financial compensation that will address their health issues, allowing them to make a full recovery and move on with their lives.

Compensation for CPAP Injuries

Recalled CPAP and BiPAP devices were manufactured between 2009 and June 2021, and patients may have experienced years of exposure to dangerous substances. In some cases, injuries may have led to ongoing disabilities and chronic health issues that affect a person's quality of life and their overall well-being. Those who have been injured by these devices may be able to recover multiple types of damages, including those related to:

  • Medical expenses - Depending on the ways a person was affected, they may require multiple forms of medical treatment, and the costs of treatment over several years can add up to tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars. For example, a person who suffers from lung disease may be hospitalized, and they may require ongoing oxygen therapy and medications, or a person who contracts cancer may need to undergo chemotherapy, radiation treatment, or surgery.
  • Loss of income - A person's health conditions may have caused them to be unable to work or resulted in limitations on the types of work they can perform. A victim may pursue compensation for the loss of past and future income and benefits.
  • Pain, suffering, and emotional trauma - Victims can experience a great deal of physical pain, discomfort, and difficulty performing daily activities , and this can affect their enjoyment of life and their relationships with loved ones. Victims and their family members may also struggle with emotional difficulties due to their ongoing health issues and other effects of their injuries.
  • Injuries from birth defects - If a mother's use of a recalled CPAP device while pregnant resulted in harm to her child, a family may be able to receive compensation that addresses the child's ongoing medical treatment and other expenses related to a physical or cognitive disability.
  • Wrongful death - If a CPAP injury led to a person's death, their family members may be able to obtain compensation for damages such as loss of companionship, grief and mental anguish, and funeral and burial expenses in addition to the damages suffered by their loved one before they died due to the recalled CPAP device.
