Do you need information about your rights at work in Germany?

How do I apply for the injury benefit?

In the event of an accident at work, the employer will contact the statutory accident insurance directly. Your employer is subject to this obligation if the incapacity to work due to the work accident lasts longer than 3 days. This means that you do not have to do anything at first except notify your employer about the work accident. If you receive injury benefits, your employer’s liability insurance association will later send you questionnaires about the work accident, which you must complete and return.

Important: You should always know who your correct contact person is. If it is an accident at work and you receive injury benefits, it is always the employer’s liability insurance association, not the health insurance company!

If your employer does not take action and does not speak to the relevant employer’s liability insurance association, you should first remind your employer. If your employer does not take action, you should contact the relevant employer’s liability insurance association yourself. You can find out how to find out the relevant employer’s liability insurance association under the question: What is the employer’s liability insurance association?
