Missouri and Kansas Dangerous Drug Attorneys
Doctors often prescribe painkillers and other prescription drugs to help patients cope after suffering a bodily injury or undergoing surgery. Unfortunately, even when a patient uses these drugs as instructed, addiction, overdose, and other major complications can occur. Despite the risks, painkiller use has continued to become more prevalent in recent years.
At The Law Offices of Brian Timothy Meyers in Kansas City, our lawyers have been helping people who have been harmed by pharmaceuticals pursue justice for over 30 years. We understand this complex area of the law and handle our clients’ legal concerns so they can focus on recovering from their injury or condition.

Doctors, Drug Manufacturers and Pharmacists Can Make Mistakes
Whether obtained over the counter or prescribed by a doctor, painkillers containing opiates — such as Vicodin and OxyContin — can cause serious side effects, including:
- Heart attack
- Organ failure
Addiction, overdose and other side effects can occur for a number of reasons, such as a doctor prescribing too much medication or a patch — such as Fentanyl — allowing too much of the drug into the system at once. If a physician, hospital, pharmacist or drug manufacturer has been negligent, we can help you pursue a medical malpractice or products liability claim.
