Sleep apnea is more than just a sleep disorder; it affects the quality of life and overall well-being of millions. For many, CPAP machines by Philips Respironics were the beacon of hope for peaceful nights. It’s our duty to share recent developments concerning CPAP Machines and the lawsuits at hand.
Personal Injury and Medical Claims are Ongoing
Philips Respironics has recently committed to paying a $479 million to settle claims concerning their devices. The crux? The lawsuit settlement only covers reimbursement costs. Claims for personal injury and medical expenses remain ongoing.
Reimbursements vs. True Compensation
While Philips is reimbursing those who purchased, leased, or rented the recalled machines—amounting to between $55 and $1,552 per device based on the model—it’s crucial to recognize what’s missing here. The settlement is notably silent on the costs of personal injuries and medical expenses, which many victims claim have stemmed from these faulty devices.
Your Health Matters
In 2021, Philips openly acknowledged an alarming fault: the foam in its sleep apnea devices could degrade into particles. The risks? Ingestion, inhalation, and a plethora of health concerns from headaches to toxic carcinogenic effects. Financial reimbursement for a faulty machine is one thing, but compensation for peace of mind, health, and potential long-term medical concerns remains a top priority.
As a client of OnderLaw, we urge you to submit your receipts for machine reimbursement. But remember, this is only the beginning. We remain steadfastly committed to ensuring that Philips is held accountable for any and all health impacts stemming from their devices.
