I was seriously burned on my lower leg by a heating pad,

I was seriously burned on my lower leg by a heating pad, which I used as normal and according to the directions. The burn itself was bad and is still healing, but I do not believe the injury was especially serious given that I did not lose the use of my leg or the ability to work as a result of the burn. With that said, I am trying to figure out if I should contact a local personal injury attorney to initiate a products liability claim on my behalf. I understand that NY law has a 3 year statute of limitations from the date of my injury. While I was burned by the heating pad several months ago (obviously under the 3 year time frame). I do not recall when the heating pad was actually purchased and from what store. Is there a statute of limitations on the product purchase date to the date of the injury (i.e. if someone is injured using a defective product today, but the product itself was manufactured and purchased many years earlier, can one still bring a products liability claim?)? Assuming NY does not limit claims on products that were purchased several years ago (without proof of purchase), are there any requirements for the serious nature of the injury (as there would be with car accidents under NY insurance law)?Please advise as to the NY law on these issues-- thank you!

I backed into someones car in a parking lot three months

I backed into someones car in a parking lot three months ago. I left my name and phone number so he could get in touch with me. He contacted me this week with two quotes for repair on his car, one 1.7k and another 2.1k. His car KBB values in excellent condition at 4.5k. I offered him 800$ which seems fair to me. He is refusing and wants to go to small claims court, what should I do?

I was involved in an automotive accident. The insurance

I was involved in an automotive accident. The insurance company is wanting me to sign an agreement and release which says I release them from all liability for or because of property damage, death and bodily injury. This is in exchange for $900 to cover my medical expenses. My car is scheduled to be repaired May 1 and they are providing a rental car during that time. I just want to make sure if I sign this document that I don't waive my right to have them pay to repair my car and provide a rental.
