Mrs R suffered from rheumatoid arthritis and suffered a fall, fracturing her ring finger.  She presented at the local A&E where the finger was strapped to the little finger.  This was the wrong treatment given the arthritis and caused a permanent deformity to both the ring and little fingers.  Mrs R accepted a settlement of £15,000 reflecting the fact she was likely to have encountered some difficulties as a result of the fracture and underlying diagnosis.
