Workers’ Compensation in Atlantic City, NJ Casinos - July 23rd 2018

Over the past year, the Atlantic City landscape has changed quite a bit.  With the addition of Atlantic City’s newest casinos, Hard Rock and Ocean AC, thousands of jobs have returned to America’s Favorite Playground. However, in this non-stop, busy industry, the risk of a workplace injury increases significantly.  If you work in one of Atlantic City’s many casinos, it is important to understand your rights and the benefits you are entitled to in the event you are injured on the job.

A few of the most common categories of casino workplace injuries include:

Slip & Fall - Casinos are full of guests who are drinking, eating and gambling.  Along with this, the high volume of traffic in and around casinos can create hazards that may not be noticed or addressed right away.  If gone unnoticed, spilled drinks, bathroom debris, broken bottles, and more can result in a slip and fall accident, causing serious injuries to guests or casino employees.

Repetitive Motion - Many casino jobs require constant, repetitive motion during a shift.  Jobs such as bartending, card dealing, cleaning and serving can result in wear-and-tear injuries that affect many different areas of the body.  If not treated properly, these injuries have the potential to result in some level of partial permanent disability.   

Violence - Alcohol, large crowds and the high-stress environment created by gambling can often lead to violence.  Security personnel are especially susceptible to violence as they are the staff trained to address violent situations. 

Food poisoning and vehicle accidents are among other employee or guest accidents that could occur at a casino or hotel. As an employee of a casino and/or hotel, if you suffer any of the above, you may be entitled to benefits which cover medical expenses, lost wages, and partial/total permanent disability compensation.

If you are injured on the job, recovering the statutory benefits you are entitled to can be a challenge.  Often times, we see the Insurance Carriers unfairly deny injured employees the compensation they need to support themselves and their families. Our workers’ compensation attorneys in NJ are ready to fight for your benefits. Contact us today for a free consultation at https://www.hwmlaw.com/contact.php or call 609-407-1000.
