Product Liability Lawsuit Against Pharmaceutical Company...
by Vaughn (Hays, Kansas)
I had a bad reaction to dilantin. I have been going around and around with the pharmaceutical company for a while now. I just wanted to know if there is a time frame within which the defendant has to respond to the plaintiff in a product liability lawsuit? Thank you!
