Prostate Cancer Due to Defective Philips CPAP Devices

The Connection Between Exposure to Polyurethane Foam and Prostate Cancer

The polyurethane foam in the defective Philips CPAP, BiPAP, and ASV sleep apnea machines and ventilators contains 2 chemicals that are carcinogenic, namely methylene diphenyldiisocyanate and toluene diisocyanate. People who regularly use these devices inhale these hazardous substances if the polyurethane foam has deteriorated, which quickly enter their bloodstream and can eventually reach any organ and tissue in the body, including the prostate.

Once methylene diphenyldiisocyanate and toluene diisocyanate begin causing damage to your prostate, you can expect to develop prostate cancer within several years. These chemicals have the ability to induce gene mutations and cause chromosomal damage, and they also react with DNA in vivo and in vitro. As a result, they can easily lead to the development of cancer if you frequently inhale them from your faulty Philips sleep apnea device.

The Eligibility Requirements for Filing a Philips CPAP Claim for Prostate Cancer

We advise everyone who came to struggle with prostate cancer as a consequence of using a defective Philips sleep apnea device to reach out to Atraxia Law, as our team will provide the necessary help to navigate the legal process. However, to qualify for filing a claim to recover compensation from the liable company, you must meet the following requirements:

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

The statute of limitations concerns the period of time during which you can file your claim. If it expires, you no longer qualify for compensation. In the majority of states, the statute of limitations is 3 years from the moment of diagnosis. Nevertheless, throughout the country, it ranges between 1 and 6 years, which is why we strongly encourage you to contact us as soon as you receive your diagnosis of prostate cancer, as assessing your eligibility is a complex process.
