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.
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)
