When should an accident report be made?

Every accident at work or commuting accident should be reported, even minor accidents which did not cause any incapacity for work and accidents without bodily injury, which only caused material damage to motor vehicles. 

Accidents must be reported in writing to the Accident Insurance Association (AAA) using the form available on its website. 

Who should make the accident report?

The employer or his representative, i.e. the designated worker, must report any work or commuting accident to the Accident Insurance Association by providing all the information requested on the form. 

What is the deadline for reporting an accident?

As soon as possible, but no later than one year after the accident occurs. 

The declaration should be sent to the Accident Insurance Association: 

  • or by post to the postal address L-2976 Luxembourg 
  • or by fax to +352 495335 
  • or by email in PDF format to declaration.aaa@secu.lu 

Should copies be made and kept? 

It is advisable to keep a copy of the report in the company’s files. 

What can you do if you are the victim of an accident at work and you have doubts about the report?

If you have not obtained a copy of the accident report, you can ask the employer to send you a copy. 

If an employer has not reported the accident, you can write directly to the AAA within one year, which will ask for the employer’s position before making a decision.
