The Newport Beach Christmas boat parade is an annual event held for five days in the Newport Harbor. The boat parade is a festive time to show off creative skills by decorating boats with lights in aesthetic designs.
However the festive light decorations can pose potential safety risks for you and your family. Protect yourself from any boat parade accidents by taking note of these safety tips.
Boat accidents are categorized between boat collision and allision. A collision is when a boat strikes another vessel. An allision is when a boat collides with a stationary object. There are numerous ways a boat accident can happen. It’s important to know what to do and how to protect yourself from any exclusions the insurance adjusters can use against you.
Your rights after a boat accident need to be protected. If you were injured while on a boat or as a spectator, you need to act quickly. Get to a doctor as soon as possible if you were injured at the boat parade.
The boat parade occurs at night when visibility is low, creating the potential for injuries. Its important to take photos of the scene of the accident. Preserving the evidence will help strengthen your personal injury claim.
