Qader and others v Esure Services Ltd [15.10.15]
The claim arose out of an RTA. In the claim form, its value was stated as between £5,000 and £15,000. In the defence, the Defendant averred that the collision was deliberately induced by the Claimant. The claim was then allocated to the multi-track. At first instance, District Judge Salmon held that a fixed recoverable costs regime applies to low value personal injury claims arising out of an RTA, which start under the RTA Protocol but no longer continue under that Protocol or the Stage 3 procedure, and instead proceed on the multi-track. This decision has now been upheld on appeal by His Honour Judge David Grant.
