What is CPAP And How Can We Help With Your Case?

Philips CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) is a machine that uses mild air pressure to keep breathing airways open while you sleep. Your healthcare provider may prescribe CPAP to treat sleep-related breathing disorders including sleep apnea. CPAP also may treat preterm infants who have underdeveloped lungs. Unfortunately, this machine has been linked to cancer and other serious health issues.
In June 2021, Philips Respironics announced a recall of certain CPAP, BiPAP and ventilator machines because of potential health risks associated with the breakdown of PE-PUR sound abatement foam.

Your lawyer can help you negotiate a fair and reasonable settlement that covers your medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages.
Negotiate a settlement:The fourth step is to negotiate a settlement with the defendants or their insurance companies. A settlement is an agreement to resolve the case without going to trial. It usually involves the payment of a certain amount of money to the plaintiff in exchange for dropping the lawsuit. Your lawyer can help you negotiate a fair and reasonable settlement that covers your medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages.
Go to trial:The final step is to go to trial if a settlement cannot be reached or if you reject the settlement offer.

Your lawyer can help you prepare for trial and advocate for your rights and interests.

Key Differences Between Mass Tort and Class Action Lawsuits

Structure:
  • Mass Tort: Involves multiple individual lawsuits grouped together due to common elements or defendants.
  • Class Action Lawsuits: A single lawsuit brought on behalf of a larger group, known as the class, with a designated representative plaintiff.
Individual Control:
  • Mass Tort: Each plaintiff maintains control over their case and its resolution.
  • Class Action Lawsuits: Class members have limited control over the lawsuit, with decisions made by the representative plaintiff and their legal team.
Compensation:
  • Mass Tort: Compensation and settlements are determined individually, considering the unique circumstances and harm suffered by each plaintiff.
  • Class Action Lawsuits: Compensation and settlements are typically distributed uniformly among all class members, often on a pro-rata basis.
Applicability:
  • Mass Tort: Ideal when cases involve varying degrees of harm or distinct circumstances for each plaintiff.
  • Class Action Lawsuits: Effective when numerous claimants have similar claims and a uniform resolution is practical.
Efficiency:
  • Mass Tort: May be more time-consuming and complex due to individual case management.
  • Class Action Lawsuits: Generally more efficient in terms of time and resources as it consolidates claims into one proceeding.
Understanding these differences is crucial for both plaintiffs and defendants when determining the most appropriate legal strategy for addressing a collective grievance or harm.
