    Depending upon the severity of the burns, you may have a viable claim. Like most manufacturers of notebook computers, Apple has struggled with heat management issues. Their processors give out heat, and the older processors gave out more heat than the newer (Intel) processors. Depending upon how your machine was being used and the degree of harm you suffered, you might have a worthwhile lawsuit. On the other hand, if you misused the machine or your burns are minor, or both, then the time and expense of bringing an action would probably not be justified by the amount of any likely recovery.

    If the property damage was not your fault, as you have stated, then you should have no liability. In fact, as a permissive user of the vehicle, you should be entitled to coverage for defense and indemnity from the insurer of the vehicle, even though you are not a "named insured" under the policy. As far as the threat with the Navy goes, your question is not specific enough to answer. Your legal liability for property damage, however, should be readily defensible. Any unpaid amounts should be collectable in court from the other driver. If your cousin was "upside-down" on her car loan (meaning that the car was not worth what she owed on it), however, this may leave her with unrecoverable out-of-pocket losses.
