Philips CPAP cases
The Shouse Injury Law Group is taking on many Philips CPAP cases, most of which settled out of court. Most cases resolved were for financial compensation or medical benefits or reimbursement for lost time at work and pain and suffering. In the last three years, the number of Philips CPAP lawyers has skyrocketed. So what are their main areas of expertise, and how do they help you?
Get a preview of your case
For its touted wonderful benefits and long-term effects, Philips CPAP machines may actually do more harm than good for some users. While many people may not notice the symptoms initially, eventually prolonged exposure can lead to health issues and conditions that could be fatal. This is why it’s a good idea to consult with an experienced Philips CPAP injury lawyer to get a preview of your case.
It’s always wise to get a second opinion, especially regarding products as important as the Philips CPAP machines. Ask your trusted friends, family, and colleagues for a refresher on the latest and recall news. You can also search out specific news from CPAP retailers, including websites where you can receive a preview of your case and learn more about how it can benefit you. CPAP retailers will usually have news blurbs and a brief overview of recent happenings in the industry. If there has been any major recall or complaint, these should be noted along with the news so you can stay up to date on the latest happenings.
Experience is a must
You shouldn’t neglect one thing when looking for a Philips CPAP lawyer: How long have they worked in the dangerous medical devices field? You need someone who has been working for years, not just months or weeks. There are different rules for private attorneys versus those working for the government. Some of the cases handled by CPAP plaintiffs’ lawyers are settled out of court, while others go to trial. A Philips CPAP lawyer who has worked for years in the industry and won hundreds of cases for sleep apnea patients should provide you with the kind of background and track record you need to feel confident that they will handle your case well.
You also want to find out if the attorney has tried a case like yours before. Have they represented people like you? Are they familiar with the problems you are experiencing with your Philips CPAP machines? There are dangers associated with certain types of sleep apnea machines, such as the “dry machine” — these cause tons of tiny toxic foam particles to be blown into patients’ faces. A Philips CPAP lawyer who has handled other lawsuits involving sleep apnea machines will know what to do in terms of safe operation.
Is there a way to preview the work they will do for you? One of the things you can do — and this is an attorney’s job — is to get a preview of how a case might play out. You can contact either a small local law firm or larger firms with CPAP class-action lawsuits by sending them a message using the contact information above. Usually, you will be contacted within 24 hours.
At that point, you can discuss the details of your case and ask when they would recommend you receive the first legal advice. In most cases, it will be a free consultation meeting. The lawyer may decide to use you to file a complaint against the company whose defective device caused your discomfort or medical condition or disease such as cancer. Call a lawyer now. This is the best way to receive such a prompt review of your claim.
