He assists clients suffering from a range of conditions resulting from their work, such as RSI, hand-arm vibration syndrome (HAVS), hearing loss and illnesses following exposure to hazardous fumes and liquids. He also works on cases where clients have been injured in an accident at work.
As part of his role, Frederick handles a range of cases, including industrial disease 'portal' cases, advising clients on negotiating the portal procedure, and claims that are not suitable for the portal, but with a value of less than £25,000. He also assists senior lawyers with claims involving a high degree of complexity and higher value.
Frederick is proud of Thompsons’ insistence on exclusively representing the victims of workplace malpractice rather than the defendants or their insurance companies.
Away from work Frederick is involved in the trade union movement. He also plays the drums, which he has done for ten years.
