Bladder Cancer Due to Defective Philips CPAP Devices

How Does Using the Defective Philips Sleep Apnea Devices Cause Bladder Cancer?

According to the International Agency for Research on Cancer, the methylene diphenyldiisocyanate that is present in polyurethane foam is a possible carcinogen and has a significant connection to bladder cancer, among other malignant diseases. If you use a defective Philips CPAP, BiPAP, or ASV sleep apnea device whose polyurethane foam has deteriorated, you will inevitably inhale methylene diphenyldiisocyanate, which will immediately enter your body and reach your bloodstream. Subsequently, it can travel to any organ and tissue, such as the bladder, gradually causing DNA damage and mutations, which may eventually lead to cancer.

A 2012 study published in the health journal Environmental Health found that workers who had regularly been exposed to methylene diphenyldiisocyanate on the job have a considerable risk of developing bladder cancer. The researchers state that there is a proven bladder carcinoma risk in people who are involved in the manufacturing of this hazardous chemical. In the regrettable event that you developed bladder cancer after using a faulty Philips sleep apnea device, we are here to provide you with quality assistance that will ease the legal process of recovering financial compensation for you.

What Are the Requirements for Filing a Philips CPAP Claim for Bladder Cancer?

We advise everyone who came to struggle with bladder cancer due to using defective Philips sleep apnea machines and ventilators to seek financial compensation for their physical and emotional suffering. Nonetheless, people who intend to take legal action must meet the following eligibility criteria before actually filing their claim:

  • they must have a clear diagnosis of bladder cancer
  • they must have used their faulty Philips sleep apnea device for 6 months or longer
  • their claim must be filed within the statute of limitations

A crucial aspect you need to pay attention to if you want to obtain compensation from Philips refers to the statute of limitations. It represents the timeframe within which you can file your claim and, if it expires, you will no longer be eligible for compensation. In most states, the statute of limitations is 3 years from the moment of diagnosis, but it ranges between 1 and 6 years across the country. Since only a lawyer knows the statute of limitations for your state, we highly advise you to contact Atraxia Law as soon as you find out about your bladder cancer diagnosis.
