Damages Calculator Prepared by the Settlement Oversight Committee  (January 17, 2014)
The Settlement Oversight Committee (“SOC”) prepared this Damages Calculator as a tool to help claimants and law firms calculate a Product User’s potential Part A Base Award. This Damages Calculator is for informational purposes only and is not a requirement for the Registration or Enrollment phases of the Settlement Program. View

The amount calculated by this Damages Calculator is a representation of your Part A Base Award based on the information provided within this hypothetical tool. It is not binding on the Claims Processor and will not influence the Claims Processor’s final Part A Base Award determination. The Claims Processor will not reference this Damages Calculator when determining a Product User’s Part A Base Award. The Claims Processor will use the medical documents, other required proof, and Article 7 of the Settlement Agreement to determine the Product User’s Part A Base Award.

This Damages Calculator is a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet that uses embedded Macros to make the hypothetical award calculations, which may not work with all versions of Microsoft Excel. Law Firms and Unrepresented Claimants should contact the SOC with any questions about this Damages Calculator.
