Submit travel and travel expenses for medical treatment in the event of an accident at work or occupational disease


If you have suffered an accident at work recognised by the statutory accident insurance or if you suffer from an occupational disease, you can submit the associated costs for reimbursement.

Costs that may be covered by your statutory accident insurance institution are, for example,

  • travel costs by public transport,
  • travel expenses in private motor vehicles,
  • travel costs by other means of transport (e.g. taxi or ambulance),
  • travel expenses (e.g. food and accommodation costs),
  • Cost of baggage transport.

Your travel expenses are usually reimbursed for 2 family trips home per month. Alternatively, 2 trips of your relatives to your place of residence can also be taken over.

If you need an accompanying person due to your state of health, the travel costs for this person can also be reimbursed.

If your companion has lost earnings due to the accompaniment, the earnings may be reimbursed if the reimbursement is proportionate to the care costs otherwise incurred.
