Becoming A Member

LCA invites you to renew your membership or join the LCA as a new member. Claims professionals enjoy the use of our extensive resources, opportunities to consider important issues, increase knowledge, sharpen expertise, and acquire skills needed to become a more effective claims professional.

We provide educational services to promote efficient and effective claims management in the administration of Admiralty, Maritime and Longshore & Harbor Workers' Compensation claims.

Promoting Excellence

LCA is a national association of individuals involved in the defense of claims under federal jurisdiction. These include admiralty and maritime claims, as well as claims under the Longshore & Harbor Workers' Compensation Act and its extensions: Defense Base Act, Non-Appropriated Funds Instrumentalities Act, Outer Continental Shelf Lands Act and War Hazards Act. Our goal is to promote excellence in claims management through educational programs and legal advisories.


Actively Participate

Membership is on an individual basis since we understand that it is you, the individual claims professional, who maintains integrity and effectiveness within the industry. They may be considered ordinary and necessary business expenses. We welcome you to become an active participant in the LCA.
