Personal injury forms the majority of Frederick’s practice. His work is approximately divided equally between Claimants and Defendants. Frederick is instructed at all stages of proceedings, from interim applications and CCMC’s through to trials. He appears in court on a near daily basis.
Recent cases have included:
Frederick provides advice on quantum, liability and tactics either following pre-trial conferences or on the papers. He is particularly sought after by Defendants in cases where fraud or fundamental dishonesty is alleged.
Frederick has a familiarity with cases in the Travel Law sphere and is regularly instructed to appear in court or draft pleadings on behalf of Claimants and Defendants in cases brought under the Package Travel Regulations, Montreal or Athens conventions.
As a result of his previous career as an outdoor instructor Frederick maintains a particular interest in accidents arising out of participation in supervised high risk or ‘extreme’ sports. He has recently advised on cases involving rock climbing, scuba diving, skiing and horse riding. He is often instructed to advise on jurisdictional issues where such accidents have occurred abroad.
Frederick is happy to consider conducting appropriate cases for claimants on a CFA basis.View full profile >>
