Obligation to register with regard to the statutory accident insurance

If you start your own business or begin to work as a freelancer, it is always necessary to register for a statutory accident insurance within a week, even if you do not have any employees. Individual professional associations also have in their by-laws a legal obligation to insure for owners of a company or a doctor's or law office or each freelancer's office.

Information hotline of Deutsche Gesetzliche Unfallversicherung (DGUV: German Social Accident Insurance) helps with the assignment of your industry at +49 (0)800 60 50 404.
