The Team You Need for the Results You Deserve Kansas City's Leading Medical Malpractice & Serious Personal Injury Firm

Dangerous Medication Attorneys in Kansas City

Defective Drug Litigation

Dozens of new prescription medications hit the market each year, bringing relief to millions but taking a toll on thousands of others. So many of these “wonder drugs” and “medical breakthroughs” have turned out to be dangerous or fatal that drug recall litigation is now an industry of its own.

Dempsey & Kingsland, P.C. has the sophisticated knowledge and decades of personal injury trial experience to hold a giant drug company accountable for injury or loved one’s death. We are small enough to offer clients personal attention and support while aggressively pursuing compensation on their behalf.

If your loved one suffered permanent injury or died from complications of a dangerous drug, call (816) 484-3776 for a free case evaluation.

Dangerous Pharmaceuticals

Dempsey & Kingsland can initiate individual lawsuits or represent your interests in class action litigation. Some products have been taken off the market in full-scale drug recall after patients died or suffered permanent injury. Others have been forced to warn the public of the risks of grave side effects such as heart attack, stroke, brain damage, liver damage, hemorrhage, and paralysis.

Litigation has covered the spectrum of drugs such as:

  • Reglan (metoclopramide)
  • Trasylol (heart surgery)
  • Gadolinium (metal found in MRI contrast dyes)
  • Duragesic Fentanyl Pain Patch (pain relief)
  • Avandia (diabetes)
  • Paxil (anti-depressant)
  • Byetta (diabetes)
  • Digitek (heart)
  • Levaquin (antibiotic)
  • Accutane (acne drug)
  • Ortho-Evra (birth control)
  • Fosamax (osteoporosis medication)
  • Raptiva (psoriasis drug)
  • Rituxan (arthritis/lymphoma/lupus)
  • Osmoprep (colonoscopy prep)
  • Fleet Phospho-soda (colonoscopy prep)
  • Visicol (colonoscopy prep)

With each wave of new drugs come reports of horrific complications. The experienced Kansas City medical malpractice lawyers of Dempsey & Kingsland are diligent in staying abreast of verdicts, class action filings, drug recalls, and “scouting reports” of the next defective drug. We have secured substantial verdicts and settlements in products liability cases and have an extensive background in medical trauma and causation from decades of experience in medical malpractice litigation.

If you believe that a prescription medication or over-the-counter drug caused the serious injury or wrongful death of a loved one, contact us online or call (816) 484-3776 for a free initial consultation.
