The Villages CPAP Cancer Attorney

How The Villages CPAP Cancer Attorney Can Help You

In June 2021, Philips Respironics (Philips) issued a voluntary recall of certain continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machines as well as other types of machines used to assist with breathing. The reason for the recall? There is a potential for the machines to cause health problems, including lung injury and cancer. At Babiarz Law Firm, PA, we help people that believe they have been injured by a Phillips CPAP machine or other breathing devices evaluate their claim to see if they may qualify for compensation. As Philips is the largest producer of CPAP machines in the world, it is possible that up to four million machines are affected. If you suspect you have been injured by a breathing machine from Philips, contact our firm to speak with a Florida CPAP cancer attorney.

Possible Injury Causes

So, how exactly are these machines causing these injuries and ailments? The source of the problems seems to be the polyester-based polyurethane (PE-PUR) foam used in the recalled models. PE-PUR has been found to emit toxic chemical gasses as well as disintegrate into small particles that are then ingested or inhaled by the person using the breathing machine.
