Do I also receive sick pay if I am ill after an accident at work?
No. If you are sick as a result of an accident at work, you do not receive sick pay. Instead you will receive injury benefits. The injury benefit is not paid by the health insurance fund, but by the employer’s liability insurance association. This distinction is important because you may still be entitled to special benefits when you receive injury benefits. You can find out more about accidents at work and injury benefits in the FAQ work accident.
