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!

There is a time limit for answering a lawsuit in a product liability case. In most states the time limit, otherwise known as the Statute of Limitations, is 2 years from the date of service (the date the petition was formally received by the defendant).
