If you or a loved one developed cancer or another respiratory illness after using a Philips CPAP or BiPAP machine, you could be entitled to financial compensation. To be eligible for collecting damages, you will need to file a lawsuit within the statute of limitations. Depending on your state, the statute of limitations could be anywhere from one to six years from the date Philips announced the CPAP recall, however, there may be exceptions that either extend or shorten the deadline. We recommend speaking with an experienced CPAP lawyer about your situation to verify any deadlines you need to meet when filing a lawsuit for your claim.
