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!
