In a Judgement of the Supreme Court in Brisbane on October 15th, 2014 a Casino Worker represented by Patinos Personal Lawyers was awarded over $200,000.00 in damages for injuries she sustained whilst at work.
Her Honour Justice Dalton found that no training was given to Lidija Romig as to how to use the chipping machine except for a quick demonstration on the Casino floor while gamblers waited for the training to finish and the game to begin. Ms. Romig was injured when she reached into the chipping chute and then looked down at the table to her right.
In her Judgment, Her Honour Justice Dalton awarded almost $125,000.00 for loss of income as well as $30,000.00 for her pain, suffering, and loss of enjoyment of life.
