16. Insurance for university sport / accidents
Accidents must be reported immediately to the ahs office.
Safeguarding a claim resulting from possible aftereffects: in the case of minor injuries, strained muscles etc., the course instructor must enter the details of the accident in the first-aid book (in the first-aid box). A claim can only be supported if aftereffects can be proved to have been caused in connection with attendance of an ahs session.
In case the costs have to be borne by the “Landesunfallkasse” (Hessian State Accident Insurance), the accident must be registered on the forms for students or staff as appropriate. The forms are available in the ahs office or can be downloaded here.
Justus Liebig University members of staff are insured for any official class/event organised by ahs provided such class/event fulfils the conditions of company sport (e.g. to compensate for work-related strain, regular sessions, supervision by an official course instructor, exclusivity).
In the case of “Beamte” (civil servants), an accident at an ahs event is not classed as an accident at work. In this case you cannot put in a claim for accident compensation.
The body responsible for ahs and ahs staff are not liable for damages (e.g. in the case of theft or damage to private property).
Participants are recommended to take out liability insurance for coverage in case of damage to property belonging to a third party or personal injury to a third party resulting in a liability claim.
