Lung Cancer Due to Defective Philips CPAP Devices

How Does the Polyurethane Foam in the Defective Philips Sleep Apnea Devices Cause Lung Cancer?

In 2004, a study published in the medical journal Occupational and Environmental Medicine was conducted on Swedish workers from the polyurethane foam industry. The researchers found that lung cancer incidence was higher in female workers who came in contact with the chemicals used to manufacture polyurethane foam, namely toluene diisocyanate and methylene diphenyldiisocyanate. Because the most dangerous route of exposure to the chemicals released by the polyurethane foam in the defective Philips CPAP, BiPAP, and ASV sleep apnea devices is inhalation, numerous consumers have recently been diagnosed with lung cancer.

Shortly after inhalation, the carcinogenic substances in polyurethane foam enter the lungs, where they gradually cause severe damage, eventually leading to the onset of cancer. In the regrettable event that you came to struggle with lung cancer following the regular use of a faulty Philips sleep apnea device, we highly advise you to contact Atraxia Law, whose expert team will ease the legal process of recovering compensation to a great extent.

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

If your health was affected by a defective Philips sleep apnea machine or ventilator, you might consider seeking financial compensation for your lung cancer diagnosis. However, in order to become eligible for filing a claim, you must meet the following criteria:

  • you must have a definitive lung cancer diagnosis
  • you must have used your faulty Philips sleep apnea device for 6 months or longer
  • your claim must be filed within the statute of limitations

A very important aspect you should pay attention to if you intend to obtain financial compensation for lung cancer caused by a defective Philips sleep apnea device is the statute of limitations of product liability claims. It concerns the timeframe within which you can file your claim and ranges between 1 and 6 years. Nevertheless, most states have a statute of limitations of 3 years from the moment of diagnosis. To avoid losing your right to compensation, we encourage you to contact us as soon as you find out about your lung cancer since the process of assessing your case will be quite complex.
