Harry Lambert

Call 2008

"Respected junior who “knows the area inside-out"...Extremely dedicated and hard-working. His astute intellect allows him to handle difficult cases and tricky legal issues with aplomb.”
(Chambers & Partners 2017)

Clinical Negligence

Harry’s clinical negligence practice encompasses claims in, inter alia, the fields of neurosurgery, anaesthetics, orthopaedics and cardiology. He undertakes the full range of work in this area; from complex, high value clinical negligence actions, to interlocutory hearings and pleadings.

Harry frequently represents families at inquests and has done so in inter alia paediatric, psychiatric, gastrointestinal and radiological cases.

He is also regularly led in cases of the utmost value and complexity. He was junior counsel in Glassenbury v Short, a highly complex case of perinatal hypoxia materially contributing to postnatal periventricular leucomalacia (led by Robin Oppenheim QC). Similarly K was a multi-million pound cerebral palsy claim involving complex issues over care / accommodation (led by Robin Oppenheim QC).

Selected Cases

  • A highly technical neurosurgery case in which the Claimant claims (amongst other things) that he/she became homosexual and his/her marriage broke down after a brain tumour went un-diagnosed and was allowed to grow in size.
  • Advising on issues of disclosure and accrual in a multi party dental negligence action against the MOD.
  • A case involving the death of a single mother as a result of a missed cancer diagnosis in Accident & Emergency. As a result all of her children went into foster care and the family unit was destroyed.
  • A case arising out of a GP failing to diagnose a pulmonary embolism and then fabricating/falsifying clinical notes after learning of his patient’s death. The deceased was a practical and able man who had built up a “Buy to Let” empire with his family and carried out significant work on the houses, thus giving rise to a sizeable “services” claim under the Fatal Accident Act 1976.
