Philips CPAP Lawsuit Gets Off the Ground
The Philips CPAP machine lawsuit has been in the works for many years, but only recently has the process of filing a case gotten off the ground. Philips is on notice that there was a problem with sound abatement foam in their CPAP machines, but it took them until now to correct their mistake. A new case management order is helping to speed up the process, but it is not yet final. A preliminary discovery plan has been set by Judge Conti to begin the litigation.
Took Them Until Now To Correct Their Mistake
The CPAP device itself is not faulty; however, the manufacturer did not recall the CPAP machines until June 2021. The lawsuit alleged actual physical injuries and tort claims related to the defective device. In addition to the CPAP lawsuit, a new class-action lawsuit is being filed against Philips. If you were one of the thousands of victims, you could be entitled to compensation. If you’ve been suffering from sleep apnea due to this defective device, you may be able to file a lawsuit against Philips.
The lawsuits filed in this case are centralized in the federal court system. The Western District of Pennsylvania is the jurisdiction of most cases involving the Philips CPAP. However, if you have a lawsuit pending in another state, you may have an easier time filing it. Most lawsuits have been consolidated into one court in Pennsylvania, where Philips’ headquarters are. A large part of the Philips CPAP lawsuit involves multiple plaintiffs claiming that the device caused respiratory problems.
