Atlantic City is a popular tourist destination for travelers from afar and for New Jersey residents seeking a fun weekend getaway.

While you might anticipate some financial losses at the gambling tables in these world-class resorts, no one expects to be hit with huge financial losses due to suffering a serious injury on the premises. A preventable accident in a hotel can impact more than just your Atlantic City getaway, it can impact your ability to earn a living and perform your daily routine activities. Speaking with our personal injury attorneys in Atlantic City can aid you in receiving proper compensation.
Hotel owners and managers have the legal obligation to ensure that their premises are safe and free of hazards for their guests.

What Types of Accidents Occur in Atlantic City Casino Hotels?
Atlantic City’s bustling casino hotels are fun places to relax and let your hair down for a weekend stay or a longer visit. But when a property manager neglects to address a safety issue, the hotel is liable for your damages. Some common examples of injuries that may occur in hotels and casinos include:
- Slip-and-fall accidents caused by spills, wet floors, slick surfaces, uneven flooring, unmarked step-downs or level changes, slippery cleaning product residue, loose railings, debris left on the floor
- Food poisoning
- Negligent hotel security resulting in an assault or other crime
- Elevator accidents
- Escalator accidents
- Bed bug infestations
- Pool drownings
- Broken furniture injuries
- Violations of the Americans with Disabilities Act
- Electrical shocks or burns
- Crush injury from falling objects
- Golf cart accidents
- Parking lot or parking garage injury
When you’re a guest on a hotel property, you have a right to expect to be safe when using any of the hotel’s facilities or amenities. If you sustain an injury due to a manager or property owner’s failure to promptly address an existing hazard, you could recover damages through a personal injury lawsuit with the attorneys at Grungo Law advocating for your rights.
