80.33 Permanent disabilities; fingertip amputations.
In estimating permanent disability as a result of fingertip amputations, amputation of the distal one-;third or less shall be considered the equivalent of 45% loss of use of the distal phalanx, amputation of not more than the distal two-;thirds but more than the distal one-;third shall be considered the equivalent of 80% loss of use of the distal phalanx, and amputation of more than the distal two-;thirds shall be considered as 100% loss of the distal phalanx, provided there is not added disability as a result of malformed nail or tissue. In no case shall the allowance be greater than it would have been for amputation of the entire distal phalanx.
