Premises liability can mean a lot of things. If a person who has the right, or even the implied right -- like a postman delivering your mail -- to be on your property gets hurt, he or she may have the right to bring the owner of the property to civil court. If you have been bitten by a dog, you may have a case that can be heard before the court of New York.

Premises liability is a problem for anyone who has been injured in a store, on a stairwell, at a corner due to crumbling sidewalk areas or due to snowy sidewalks. It can mean serious injury and chronic pain.
