      Everyone there was very professional, knowledgeable, and friendly. My car was totaled, and I was a little intimidated talking with a couple of other lawyers in Greenville. But with Christian and Christian, not only did they answer my questions, but they did so in a way that made what could have been a hectic situation, easy. Overall, an excellent experience with high quality lawyers who truly go above and beyond and really try to get you the results or answers you need.

      I met Josh like 4 years ago when my Son was injured at Daycare. He was very concerned about the well being of my Child and Me. Very Understanding Professional and Just a great Staff. If You need a Lawyer that’s all about YOU this is the Place. I just closed a Case on 6/23/2021 from a injury on a Property. They handled everything because no one else would help Me. I’m forever grateful for Your hard Work and Time. Once again Thank You Josh and Sally.

      My husband was referred to this law firm from another lawyer after his mother passed away while residing in a nursing home. Matt took on his case and we are pleased with how everything turned out. It took a long, long time to finally settle, but it was worth the wait. The staff here is friendly and I’d be happy to recommend them to anyone needing legal assistance.

      I was referred to Harold by a family friend, and I couldn’t be happier. He took the time to listen to my case, answered all my questions and truly treated me like a friend not a client. His knowledge of medical malpractice is priceless he actually successfully won, one of the first medical malpractice cases in Greenville County.

      Philips CPAP Lawsuits

      Philips CPAP lawsuits are currently underway regarding the side effects and health damages caused by recalled sleep apnea machines.

      When it comes to health devices, we as consumers are left at the mercy of those who design and manufacture these products. Unfortunately, issues are not always spotted and reported, causing harm to those whom the companies claim to help. Whether this is due to a simple mistake, sheer neglect, or in the worst case, greed, the results are the same. People are hurt and lives are damaged or lost. This appears to be the case regarding Philips recalled CPAP, BiPAP and ventilator machines.

      About the Recall

      Many investigations and lawsuits are currently underway regarding the side effects and health damages caused by Philips’ recalled CPAP sleep apnea machines. Recalled in June 2021, these machines have been found to emit defective sound-abatement foam which contains toxic chemicals and gases and has been breathed in directly by users. This hazardous foam can potentially lead to severe health injuries, including death, and was estimated by Philips to have been used in 3 to 4 million devices.

      The specific issue is in regards to the polyester-based polyurethane (PE-PUR) foam which is a sound-abatement component of several Philips CPAP devices. This foam is broken down by the machine and inhaled directly by the CPAP user. The degraded foam used in the recalled devices may release toxic and carcinogenic chemicals. There have even been several instances of consumers reporting black debris in the breathing tubes of these recalled machines.

      Results of the defective product range from minor side effects, such as headaches, chest pressure and coughs, to much more serious diseases and respiratory problems. Here is a very limited list of some of the potential injuries.

      • Lung Damage/Cancer
      • Asthma
      • Pneumonia
      • Airway Irritation & Inflammation
      • Stroke
      • Heart Attack/Failure
      • Liver Cancer/Disease
      • Kidney Cancer/Disease
      • Colon Cancer/Disease
      • Organ Damage

      Which Philips CPAPs are Recalled?

      The Philips CPAP recall, which was initiated in June 2021, has extended to millions of consumers and machines as the defective foam was used in several of Philips’ devices. Some of the devices that have been included in the recall include, but are not limited to:

      • Philips CPAP Machines
      • DreamStation CPAP
      • Dorma CPAP
      • C-Series CPAP
      • OmniLab Advanced Plus CPAP
      • REMStar SE Auto CPAP
      • System One CPAP

      Philips announced on September 1, 2021 that it would repair or replace recalled devices. However, it could take up to one year to complete this process. Until that time, consumers may need to seek alternative devices. This recall is related to products sold between 2009 and 2021.

      Am I Eligible for a Case?

      As a maker of health products, it is Philips’ direct responsibility to routinely check for defects that could cause harm to consumers. Because they did not do their due diligence, it’s important that they be held responsible, and that those who have been wrongly affected are compensated for the damage caused.

      If you or a loved one were using a recalled Philips device and later experienced any health issues, including but not limited to those listed above, you may be eligible to file a lawsuit. If you’re uncertain, Christian & Christian can help to determine if you qualify for a case.

      Christian & Christian Will Help

      No matter the level of pain or injury, please reach out to Christian and Christian and we can help you to determine your eligibility to file a lawsuit. We will do everything possible to ensure that you are compensated for the pain, setbacks or losses that you have had to face.

      As time is limited to file, we advise that you seek counsel as soon as possible. While Philips CPAP lawsuits are currently in their early phases, with millions of recalled devices, we expect large numbers of lawsuits and potentially large settlements and want to ensure that you receive the compensation that you are entitled to.

      If you or a loved one have been affected, it’s important that you keep the recalled machine as evidence until we know whether or not you have a case. If Philips is demanding that it be returned to them, we can mediate and make sure that you are not harassed. Have questions? We try our best to answer them here!

      In the meantime, if you are experiencing any health concerns, please see your doctor and follow the appropriate medical help and guidance. We at Christian & Christian wish you well, and are here to help.
