Old Mutual has provided Uber drivers and riders an Injury Protection.

Per the agreement, all Uber driver-partners will benefit from this cover the moment they accept a trip, driving to pick up a rider, to the end of the trip.

Riders will also be covered from the time their ride begins until the trip ends.

The packages include:

 Medical Cover: If an accident happens On-Trip, this cover reimburses drivers and riders for necessary medical treatment costs up to GH¢​​​​​12,500. In addition, this cover reimburses ambulance service costs.

Death and Funeral Payments: In the unfortunate event that a driver-partner or rider dies as a result of an accident On-Trip, their dependents or heirs will benefit from a lump sum payment of GH¢50,000. They will also obtain an amount of GH¢​​​​​​​5,000 for funeral expenses.

Permanent Disability Payments: In the unfortunate event that a user suffers permanent disability as a result of an accident On-Trip, they will benefit from a lump sum payment up to GH¢​​​​​​​50,000. The amount depends on the severity of the disability.

Daily Payment Benefit for Drivers (injury): If a driver is hospitalized for more than 48 hours as a result of an accident that happened On-Trip and are thereafter unable to drive because of those injuries, they will receive a daily payment of GH¢​​​​​​​50 for up to 30 days whilst they are medically certified by a doctor as unfit to work.
