Cross-reference: See also ss. DWD 80.32 and 80.50 , Wis. adm. code.

In a proceeding brought by an employee who suffered total deafness in one ear, a skull fracture, loss of taste and smell, facial paralysis, and periods of intermittent headaches and dizziness, the department did not err in determining that the hearing loss was a scheduled disability under sub. (18), with a separate award for the additional physical effects of the deafness, rather than considering the entire range of disabilities as a whole. When a loss is recognized by and compensable under this section, the schedule therein is exclusive. Vande Zande v. ILHR Dept. 70 Wis. 2d 1086 , 236 N.W.2d 255 (1975).

The " loss of an arm at the shoulder" under sub. (1) includes injuries to the shoulder. Hagen v. LIRC, 210 Wis. 2d 12 , 563 N.W.2d 454 (1997), 94-0374 .
