You do not know how to treat an injuriy?
Look for a first aider!
If an injury has to be medical treated:
The form "Unfallanzeige" has to be filled out. Without the form the statutory accident insurance will not pay the costs. Ask for help in the secretariat of your group!
If no physician is consulted:
An entry in the first aid logs is needed. This serves to prove that the accident happened during work hours. If later on a medical treatment is yet needed this fact is documented and can be forwarded to the statutory accident insurance. For the entries ask a first aider for details.
If an accient victim should see a physician call 112 (emergency call). Please consider that this will be faster than to bring the victim to a doctor yourself. The accident insurance will bear the costs for the transport.
Consult a first aider.
If there is only a light eye injury ("pink eye") by way of exception it may be better to see a resident doctor instead. Try

If injuries have to be medical treated which are caused by an accident during work hours, the expenses are covered by the statutory accident insurance. Please note that accidents happening on the direct way from home to the institute or from the institute to home are also covered. Accidents happening at the leisure time are not covered.
Therefore if an accident has happened during work hours or on the way to or from the institute this fact has to be proved. This is done by using the form "Unfallanzeige" (=accident report) . The form ist only available in German. You may use the German section to get hints how to fill out the form. If you do not understand any German you need help by anybody who does understand the German text.
If the accident is covered by the statutory accident insurance it is very important to fill out the form! Otherwise you may get the bill to pay the costs yourself!
