Charles D. Naylor, a Los Angeles maritime personal injury lawyer, becomes one of only 26 certified specialists in maritime law in California.

Mr. Naylor, a Los Angeles cruise injury attorney , is now recognized by the State Bar of California as a Certified Legal Specialist in Admiralty and Maritime Law.

To be eligible for certification as a specialist, an attorney must prove that Admiralty and Maritime Law is, and has been, a substantial part of their practice for at least five years and must meet practice area specific continuing education requirements. Eligible attorneys must then meet criteria that demonstrates their experience and proficiency through prior case handling or pass a written examination. Additionally, they must also be favorably evaluated by other attorneys and judges familiar with their work.

Maritime law is a federal law that governs most injuries that occur on the high seas; navigable waters of the United States including many lakes and rivers; or on piers, docks, wharves and beaches. A maritime personal injury lawyer is the best choice for injured and ill:

    •    Cruise ship passengers and crew members
    •    Jones Act seamen, including merchant sailors and commercial fisherman
    •    Longshore, harbor and shipyard workers
    •    Offshore oil and gas workers
    •    Recreational boat passengers, including sail boats, yachts and jet skis

“What we do is very different from state personal injury and state workers compensation. I felt strongly that there needed to be more awareness about maritime law to protect the rights of the injured,” said Naylor. “Injured cruise ship passengers are among the most in need of increased awareness. When an injured passenger hires their local personal injury lawyer rather than a cruise injury attorney, they run the risk of blowing the statute of limitations or improperly filing the claim.”
