Alternative title:

On the social insurance of the caregivers of dependent persons

Subject and Keywords:

social insurance   accident insurance   insurance entitlement   caregivers


The author considers whether the caregivers of dependent persons can obtain social accident insurance. In the first place, he defines who should be treated as a caregiver of a dependent person for the purposes of the study. In the following part, he considers the legal structure of paying a contribution towards the pension and disability pension insurance for the caregivers of dependent persons. Applying the language and system interpretation, he concludes that it is a legal construction that is different from the classic insurance entitlement. In the context of caregivers, it has significant legal consequences because it deprives them of the protection of accident insurance. The legal structure applied by the legislator means that they are not subject to this insurance even though care constitutes an increased risk of an accident. Finally, the author postulates that the health damages of caregivers caused by accidents occuring as part of the caring should be protected as part of the social compensation system.
