Whether statement of value on Claim Form and allocation to Fast Track justify a case management direction limiting the level of damages recoverable.

Appeal against case management direction limiting claim to £15,000, where Claim Form and Particulars of Claim had indicated that the claim "does not exceed £15,000" and claim had previously been allocated to Fast Track on that basis, but information subsequently provided by Claimant indicated substantial loss of earnings. The District Judge’s direction limiting the claim was overturned on appeal, with the claim remaining on the fast track.
