Brain Cancer Due to Defective Philips CPAP Devices

The Link Between Exposure to Polyurethane Foam and Brain Cancer

Brain cancer is another serious disease that you can develop if you regularly use a defective Philips CPAP, BiPAP, or ASV sleep apnea machine or ventilator. A 2016 study published in the American Journal of Industrial Medicine examined the mortality rate of workers who were exposed to toluene diisocyanate in the polyurethane foam industry. Toluene diisocyanate is a carcinogenic chemical that is found in polyurethane foam. The researchers found 8 cases of brain cancer among the 4,545 participants. Furthermore, they discovered that brain cancer mortality occurred as a consequence of exposure duration and not as a result of cumulative toluene diisocyanate exposure.

The urethane in polyurethane foam also has a negative impact on the brain of a developing fetus, as it can greatly hinder normal brain development. Lastly, glioma, which is the most common form of brain cancer, accounting for 80% of all cases, was also found to have a relevant connection to exposure to toluene diisocyanate. If you have a diagnosis of brain cancer and have used a defective Philips sleep apnea device, we strongly advise you to reach out to our team of professionals, as we can help you recover the compensation you deserve from the responsible company.

The Eligibility Criteria for Filing a Philips CPAP Claim for Brain Cancer

Everyone who came to struggle with brain cancer after using a faulty Philips sleep apnea machine or ventilator should seek financial compensation for their suffering and losses, as not only will this help them afford better treatment, but it will also hold the company liable for negligence. Nevertheless, you must meet the following criteria in order to become eligible for compensation:

  • you must have a definitive brain cancer diagnosis
  • you must have used your defective Philips sleep apnea device for at least 6 months
  • the statute of limitations must not be exceeded

It is very important to keep in mind the statute of limitations, which concerns the period of time within which you can file your claim for brain cancer. If it expires, you will no longer be entitled to compensation from Philips. In the majority of states, the statute of limitations is 3 years from the moment of diagnosis, but it ranges between 1 and 6 years across the country. For this reason, you should contact us as soon as you are assigned your brain cancer diagnosis.
