Cancer that affects the lymphatic system can be either Hodgkin lymphoma or non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Every year, over 8,800 Americans receive a Hodgkin lymphoma diagnosis, whereas other 81,500 develop non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Although the causes of this malignant disease are numerous, one of the lesser-known is exposure to polyurethane foam. Because this material contains two dangerous chemicals that are carcinogenic, namely toluene diisocyanate and methylene diphenyldiisocyanate, inhaling them while you use a defective Philips sleep apnea machine or ventilator can result in lymphatic cancer over the years.
According to a study published in the British Journal of Industrial Medicine, the risk of non-Hodgkin lymphoma among workers involved in the manufacturing of polyurethane foam is slightly increased. Nevertheless, you should keep in mind that these employees wear protective equipment when handling toluene diisocyanate and methylene diphenyldiisocyanate, which partially shields them from toxic exposure. When you regularly breathe in the air from a defective Philips sleep apnea device, you are directly exposed to these hazardous substances, which greatly increases your risk of lymphoma.
People who came to struggle with lymphatic cancer, regardless of the type, may qualify for filing a claim with Philips to recover the financial compensation they deserve for their suffering. Nonetheless, they must meet some important eligibility requirements before filing their claim, which are the following:
If you suffer from lymphatic cancer as a result of using a faulty Philips sleep apnea device, we highly advise you to seek assistance for filing your claim as soon as possible, as there is a statute of limitations for product liability. While it ranges between 1 and 6 years, most states have a statute of limitations of 3 years from the moment of diagnosis.
