At Solberg Stewart Miller in Fargo, our experienced personal injury lawyers will pursue compensation on your behalf if you sustained injuries as a result of using one of these devices. Our legal team has fought on behalf of the injured since 1996 and would be honored to represent you.

Common Injuries Sustained
The PE-PUR foam can expose users of these devices to two types of injuries. The foam may fall apart into pieces and get into the air the device pushes into the individual’s lungs or the foam might release harmful chemicals into the airflow.
As a result, the following injuries may occur:
- Irritation to the skin, eyes, or respiratory tract
- Sinus infection
- Organ damage (to the kidney and liver)
- Headache and dizziness
If you are using one of these devices, stop using it and speak to your healthcare provider as soon as possible. You should also register your device with Philips and contact our legal team as soon as possible.
