The official investigation principle applies in statutory accident insurance. This means that your employers' liability insurance association or accident insurance fund automatically ("ex officio") carries out all the necessary investigations as soon as it learns of your occupational or commuting accident or occupational disease.

  • Seek out a suitable doctor, depending on the damage to your health.
  • In principle, there is free choice of doctor. In the case of occupational accidents, it is advisable to visit a doctor who is involved in the transit doctor procedure of the statutory accident insurance. Alternatively, your employers' liability insurance association or accident insurance fund can help you find a suitable doctor.
  • Please inform your doctor that the reason for your visit is an occupational accident, commuting accident or occupational disease.
  • You can find out which employers' liability insurance association or accident insurance fund is responsible for you on the website of the German Social Accident Insurance (DGUV).

You can also contact your Berufsgenossenschaft or Unfallkasse online or by mail.
