You witness an accident, or get involved in another emergency situation?
In Germany, everybody is not only morally but also legally obligated to help. So keep calm, administer first aid if necessary and don't hesitate to call for help via the emergency number 112.
If you feel you need to brush up on your first aid skills, first aid courses in english are offered by many institutions, for example the Johanniter.
Accident insurance in accordance with section VII of the German Social Security Code (SGB VII).
If you have an accident in a TUM building, on the TUM campus or on your way to/from the university, you are covered under section VII of the SGB. The Landesunfallkasse Bayern (LUK) is the insurance carrier for the state of Bavaria. Insurance coverage is free for TUM undergraduate and graduate students as well as guest students.
Accident insurance provides coverage in connection with the course of study and training and continuing education programs at TUM, as well as during events organized by TUM outside of the university's regular opening hours.
