According to the Physician Insurers Association of America, for example, the median medical jury award in medical liability cases more than tripled from 1997 to 2006, with the average award during this period rising from $347,134 to $637,134. Meanwhile, median and average settlements rose from $100,000 to $204,500, and from $212,861 to $335,847, respectively.

"The rising cost of damage awards and settlements in medical malpractice cases continues to take a heavy toll," Mr. Adams said. "The recession, moreover, has done nothing to hurt the thriving business of filing medical malpractice claims. With these additions to our medical malpractice defense team, LeClairRyan is now in an even stronger position to help New York-area healthcare providers fight back."

Joining Mr. Ekblom on LeClairRyan's New York-based medical malpractice defense team are Scott W. Bermack, who was named a partner, and counsel Afaf S. Sulieman, Deborah I. Meyer and Kim A. Carnesi.

Mr. Bermack, formerly of Callan, Koster, Brady & Brennan, has significant first-chair jury trial experience and numerous reported defense verdicts. In addition to winning malpractice cases on behalf of medical specialists such as orthopedic surgeons, anesthesiologists and ob/gyns, he has represented a wide range of clients in cases involving products liability, construction and labor issues, non-medical professional negligence, trucking liability, premises liability and personal injury. Mr. Bermack earned his law degree from American University's Washington College of Law in 1989.

Ms. Sulieman, who previously practiced with Mr. Ekblom at Clausen Miller, was a clinical pharmacist in both the hospital and industrial sectors for 10 years prior to earning her law degree from Temple University in 2000.
